Great addition to Mysteries of Laura on NBC: Calliie Thorne Joins Cast

This is good news.  A show that I already liked promises to get better with the addition of actress Callie Thorne, known to many as Dr. Santini on Necessary Roughness (USA) and as Denis Leary's sometime love interest on Rescue Me.

NBC announced today that Thorne will appear as Captain Nancy Santiani,whom Debra Messing's

character, Detective Laura Diamond, will refer to as "Santini".  She'll play Messing's all-business new boss at the 2nd Precinct.  According to NBC Publicity, "despite her youth and her petite size, Santiani runs a tight ship and refuses to take any crap from Laura, who doles out plenty of it.  But despite their constant clash, these two strong women - both single moms - will find common ground and come to understand each other, even if they can't stand to be in the same room with each other."

Season 2 of "The Mysteries of Laura" premieres Wednesday, Sept. 23 on NBC (8 p.m. ET/PT).
