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.
