Heather Matarazzo is going to get her Nurse Jackie on, as Deadline reports that the actress will play “an ER nurse who never met a rule she didn’t break, bend, or ignore” in the indie drama Stuck. The movie finds Matarazzo’s character, Darby Dixon, in trouble with the law and sentenced to 30 days of house arrest that she will spend in the home she used to share with her ex-boyfriend that he is currently sharing with his fiancée. Jillian Armenante, who is currently on Fresh Off the Boat (and played the charming not-a-sociopath lesbian Cynthia Crowley in Girl, Interrupted), will direct a screenplay from David Mickel and Heather Turman. Turman will also act in the film. Matarazzo has five projects attached to her name in 2016, which is only about half the number of times we should see Heather Matarazzo in any given year.
