Ratched - Rosanna Arquette Joins Ryan Murphy's Netflix Series



Rosanna Arquette (Desperately Seeking Susan, Pulp Fiction, Crash) has joined the cast of Ryan Murphy and Netflix's Ratched. The series which has a 2-season, 18-episode order at Netflix begins filming on Wednesday per Sarah Paulson.

Arquette has been cast in a multi-episode arc. Character details are being kept under wraps.

Ratched begins in 1947 and follows Ratched (Paulson)'s journey and evolution from nurse into the full-fledged monster we know from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The series will track her murderous progression through the mental health care system.

Paulson has shared a lovely Instagram post on the actress below.

Arquette joins previously announced cast Finn Wittrock, Jon Jon Briones, Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, Harriet Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Hunter Parrish, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll, Sharon Stone, and Sarah Paulson.

The story of Rosanna Arquette is a triumphant one- but it’s also disturbing. She was one of the first women to publicly speak out about Harvey Weinstein. I was stirred by several of her recent interviews where she was quoted as saying she couldn't find work -or representation -this seems a direct consequence of her bravery. I am producing a new Netflix show, RATCHED, with Ryan Murphy- and we decided this could not stand. Her body of work -from Desperately Seeking Susan to Pulp Fiction and beyond, has always been deeply inspiring to both of us. So there will be a multi-episode arc for this extraordinary actress. Ratched starts shooting Wednesday and I say with great pride- welcome to our family, Rosanna. I am thrilled to be in a position, due to the empowerment of my friend and collaborator, Ryan Murphy, not to just act in a piece, but hire the talent showcased in it, as well.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
