ABC has enlisted another theater great to join “How to Get Away With Murder,” as Variety has learned that Marcia Gay Harden will join the cast of the freshman legal drama that stars Viola Davis.

Sources were mum on character details, but did confirm that the Tony- and Oscar-winning actress will be a recurring guest star and will appear after the series returns from its midseason finale Nov. 20.

“Murder,” which is exec produced by creator Peter Nowalk along with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, is one of the biggest hits of the fall TV season. It was one of the first new shows to receive a full-season order and is a shining example of how well a program can do when factoring in multi-platform viewing.

Harden is repped by ICM Partners, Framework Entertainment and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.
