Casting News: Niecy Nash Joins ‘Masters of Sex’
Another Scream Queens actress is set to appear on the hit Showtime series Masters of Sex. Keke Palmer was the first to crossover during the show’s second season back in 2014, and now actress Niecy Nash is set to do the same when the show returns for its fourth season this fall.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, Niecy will play Louise Bell, an Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor who befriends Masters (Michael Sheen) during one of his court appointed weekly visits. Niecy’s multi-episode arc will reportedly kick off during the first episode and last throughout the season.
For those of you unfamiliar with Masters of Sex, the show is loosely based on the lives of Masters and Johnson (William H. Masters & Virginia E. Johnson), the research duo that pioneered the diagnoses and treatment of sexual disorders during the 1950s.
The show premiered in 2013 and won the Critics’ Choice Award than same year for Most Exciting New Series. It was renewed for a fourth season in March and will return with twelve new episodes on September 11.
