'Newsroom' adds Romney staffer

JohnstoneHBO has a really bad habit of waiting forever and a day to release its series on home video. For example, we are still a few months away from 'Game of Thrones' Season Two coming to DVD and Blu-Ray. The wait is killing me! Same with 'The Newsroom' - to a lesser extent. I have not seen any of it, bar a clip that bounced all over the internet a few months ago. You can preorder its first season on Amazon, but no release date is given.

Even though I wait in agony to see it for the first time (not really), HBO continues going forward on the second season. Previously it had announced that Grace Gummer, Rosemarie DeWitt and Patton Oswalt would be recurring guest stars during the upcoming season. 

Today the network announced that Joel Johnstone, a relative newcomer, would be joining the cast (as well as that of an upcoming medical comedy pilot at the network called 'Getting On'). Johnstone will play Cameron, a Mitt Romney capaign staffer in New Hampshire who works along side Gummer's Hallie Shea, a reporter embedded with the Romney campaign.

Johnstone has previously worked on TV in episodes of 'Criminal Minds' and 'Ed'.

Have you seen Johnstone's work? Is he a good fit?
