Viola Davis Joins ‘Tara’
Posted by Brian on 06/11/2009
Viola Davis (Doubt) is set to play unconvential artist, Lynda B. Dozier, on Showtime’s upcoming second season of United States Of Tara. The half-hour drama, which casts Toni Collette as a mother with multiple personalities, was the subject of critical acclaim last year and one of my favorite new shows. Davis will appear in seven of the 12 episodes, playing a significant role in the lives of Tara (Collette) and her daughter Kate (Brie Larson). United States Of Tara was created by Diablo Cody (Juno) from an idea by Steven Speilberg.
