Sherry Stringfield Joins 'Under the Dome' For 'Pivotal Role'


Looks like Sherry Stringfield is returning to television. The 'ER' alum has been tapped to join the second season of CBS' summer drama 'Under the Dome.' 

The casting is an 'ER' reunion of sorts between Stringfield and executive producer/showrunner Neal Baer, who also produced and wrote for the popular NBC medical drama (it should also be noted that Baer is a real-life pediatrician, because I just think that's pretty awesome). 

"I'm thrilled after all these years to be working again with Sherry Stringfield. We had a blast on 'ER' together and I know Sherry will bring the same grace, spirit and intensity to her new, pivotal role on 'Under the Dome'," Baer said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter

That pivotal role has Stringfield playing Pauline, a "mysterious" woman, who may (may not) know the origins of the dome. However, it's possible that Pauline isn't all that mysterious, as avid readers of the Stephen King book on which the drama is based, should know. I won't get all "spoiler-y" on you, but there is a character named Pauline in the book, but the CBS hasn't been extremely faithful to the novel, so I guess it really is a mystery. 

Before her big break on 'ER,' Stringfield appeared on 'NYPD Blue' and 'Guiding Light.' She has recently appeared on episodes of 'CSI' and in TV movies, including 'The Confession' and 'Hornet's Nest.'

'Under the Dome' returns to CBS on June 30.

Same here, have a lot of time for Sherry Stringfield, even watched her comeback on ER on SkyAtlantic, but sadly the light has gone out on this show, but maybe Sherry will be a glimmer of hope?

TSOG Lots of people are bothered by the non science science of UTD. Kind of a rip off of the much superior Dahlgren anyway. Read it then get back on UTD and what it lacks.

Just a terrible show. Wind in the dome explained away as micro climate. Jesus, nobody had a terrarium as a kid?
