BOBBY Cannavale has joined the cast of Nurse Jackie for its forthcoming fourth season.

The Emmy and Tony nominated actor has landed a major guest role that will see him appearing in all 10 episodes of the season.

Cannavale, whose TV credits include Will & Grace, Six Feet Under and Blue Bloods, will play a character described as a formidable hospital administrator who is sent by the new conglomerate that buys the financially strapped All Saint’s Hospital to improve its efficiency and profitability.

Production on Nurse Jackie’s fourth season begins next month in New York. It will air in 2012.

Season three is currently on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

Cannavale is also a film and Broadway regular, who was Tony nominated earlier this year for The Motherf**ker With The Hat and who also starred alongside Paul Giamatti in Win Win
