Coming to 'In Treatment': Debra Winger!

Debra WingerShe made a big guest appearance on 'Law & Order' earlier this year, and now, Oscar-nominated actress Debra Winger has signed on as a regular cast member on HBO's 'In Treatment.' She'll play one of Dr. Paul Weston's (Gabriel Byrne) patients when the show returns for its highly anticipated third season later this year.

Winger is one of those actresses who used to be everywhere, and then, she, well, wasn't. She had big hits in the '80s with movies like 'An Officer and a Gentleman' and 'Terms of Endearment' -- and was even the voice of E.T.! -- but then she stayed away from Hollywood for awhile. When she returned, she was more selective about the roles she chose.

Recently, Winger played Anne Hathaway's mother in the 2008 Oscar-nominated film 'Rachel Getting Married.'

This is just one of the changes coming to the show, which is based on the Israeli series 'BeTupil' that ran for two seasons. Emmy winner Dianne Wiest, who played Paul's therapist, is leaving the show after two seasons, and Dane DeHaan will join the cast as a teen patient. The new showrunners are Dan Futterman and Anya Epstein.

please bring back In Treatment we all love it. Dianne Wiest can't be leaving she is Paul's therapist and she is excellent. HBO should maintain this show airing 5 days a week because this type of program can carry it.

I can't believe Dianne Wiest is leaving she can't Paul needs Gina and the show needs her two as a Huge fan of the first 2 seasons I am furious about these 2 changes and how can they change the showrunners what about Rodrigo Garcia who created the show? well I am happy it's actually coming back it had been so long I was starting to worry it had been cancelled
