Viola Davis to Guest-Star on Second Season of Showtime's United States of Tara

Viola Davis Travels to United States of Tara

Showtime's Viola Davis is hopping aboard the Showtime series for its second season.

This is no bit part. Davis — most recently an Oscar nominee for Doubt — will join the show in the second episode of the season and overall is scheduled to appear in seven of the season's 12 episodes. Her character is Lynda B. Dozier, described as "an unconventional artist" who will have a significant impact both on Tara (Toni Collette) and on her daughter Kate (Brie Larson).

Tara will resume production in August, and the show's second season will premiere sometime in 2010. I came to love the show over the course of its first season, and I'm definitely pleased to see another strong actress joining this ensemble that's already full of them. Also, I wonder if this means we'll get to see more of Tara's art after her mural project went so horribly wrong in the first season.

How do you imagine Davis fitting into Tara's world?

I've never seen this show (don't have Showtime) but it looks like it's interesting. Just saved it to my Netflix. Thanks for the reminder!
