Political Animals has added yet another prestigious actress to its already fancy-schmancy cast: Vanessa Redgrave is the latest addition, and she joins Sigourney Weaver, Ellen Burstyn, and Carla Gugino. According to Deadline, Redgrave will play a lesbian Supreme Court justice who's a longtime mentor to the secretary of state and former first lady (Weaver). If this miniseries is bad, we are going to be crushed.
