Susan Sarandon is the latest addition to the all-star cast for Oscar-winner Kathryn Bigelow ’s upcoming HBO series, The Miraculous Year. According to TV Squad, Sarandon will play director/choreographer Patty Atwood in the Broadway-themed show.

Sarandon has made small screen appearances on ER and Rescue Me, but has never had a lead role in a television series. Written by Tony Award-winner John Logan (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, The Last Samurai), the Kathryn Bigelow-directed drama will also feature Broadway star Norbert Leo Butz, Frank Langella (Dracula), Hope Davis (Charlie Bartlett, Six Degrees), Tony Award-winner Eddie Redmayne (The Other Boleyn Girl, John Logan’s Red), Patti LuPone (Oz), Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies) and Linus Roache (Law & Order). Phew. Is that all, HBO?
