Deadline reports Rosemarie DeWitt and Patton Oswalt will be joining the cast of The Newsroom next season. Oswalt — who is going from fan to cast member, as he did with Justified — will play Jonas Pfeiffer, the new V.P. of human resources at ACN, while Rosemarie Dewitt will play a litigator who is tasked with defending the network in a wrongful termination suit. Both better be practicing their exaggerated reaction faces.
