Daniel’s New Assistant Has Been Cast
July 22, 2009 by Tom
We now know who will be playing Natalie, Daniel’s new assistant: according to EW’s Ausiello, it’s Jamie-Lynn Sigler! This is interesting news, they went for a bigger name than I thought they would.
Sigler is best know for her role as Meadow Soprano, daughter of Tony Soprano in, of course, The Sopranos. She’s also done Entourage, and, interesting, starred as Heidi Fleiss in “Hollywood Madam”. She’s a Long Island girl, so I’d love to see he interact with Hilda, if that ever happens.
One thing we know about this character, Natalie, is that she meets Daniel at a bereavement support group, and that she has a secret which might pit her against Betty. Ausiello adds in his report that she is “spiritual”.
Her first appearance will be in the first episode after the 2-hour premiere, so I it’s a pretty good guess that it’s 4.03.
This is good news – welcome Jamie-Lynn!
