Showtime’s "The Big C" has cast an Oscar-winning actress for a major story arc in the show’s third season, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s The Live Feed blog.

Susan Sarandon, who won an Oscar for best actress in "Dead Man Walking," will play Joy, a woman who survived cancer and seeks to motivate other people, the story notes.

"She makes Cathy question whether she’s doing enough with her own cancer experience," said "The Big C" creator Darlene Hunt, referring to the character played by Laura Linney, the story notes.
