“The Newsroom” actress Emily Mortimer has joined “Rio, eu te amo” (Rio, I Love You), which is the third in a series of films that will comprise 10 five- to seven-minute short segments set in Rio. Earlier films are “New York, I Love You” and”Paris, je t’aime.”

The film will feature 11 helmers, including Brazilians Fernando Meirelles, José Padilha and Andrucha Waddington. The 30 lead actors include Rodrigo Santoro, Wagner Moura and Jason Isaacs.

Mortimer’s segment, helmed by Paolo Sorrentino, follows the wife of an older man who is dying of diabetes and related illnesses and is contemplating his mortality.

Mortimer can still be seen in HBO’s “The Newsroom” which just finished its second season, and the pay cabler recently picked up her six-episode, half-hour series “Doll & Em.” She is repped by ICM Partners, 42 and Brillstein Entertainment.
