Huston in Medium for Six-Episode Arc

ON

Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston is joining the cast of NBC’s drama “Medium” for a six-episode arc.

On the series, she will play Cynthia Keener, an investigator for a national firm called Ameritips who strikes an unusual bargain with Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette).

“When we decided to embark on a six-episode arc involving a formidable female character, the challenge was to find an actress who could hold the screen with Patricia while creating sparks of her own,” “Medium” creator/executive producer Glenn Gordon Caron said. “I couldn’t be more excited or more inspired. The idea of writing for two such extraordinary actresses as we enter our fourth season is exactly the kind of creative kick in the ass we relish on ‘Medium.’ ”

“Medium” returns for a fourth season in January.
