Jane Fonda Joining Sorkin’s HBO Series ‘Newsroom’

HBO has cast Jane Fonda in its upcoming cable news series from Aaron Sorkin, currently titled “The Newsroom.”

According to TV Line’s Michael Ausiello, Fonda “will play Leona Lansing, the CEO of cable news network’s parent company. She’s a titan and her corporate concerns often conflict with the reporting of the news outlet she owns.”

As Ausiello notes, Fonda’s character sounds suspiciously like CNN founder Ted Turner, someone she would know a thing or two about. Fonda was married to Turner from 1991-2001.
