Jane Fonda to Costar as a Media Honcho on Aaron Sorkin's Cable News Sitcom

Looks like Jane Fonda followed our advice exactly and plans to revive the news-hungry character she played in The China Syndrome in what will mark her first major TV foray: Fonda has signed on for a recurring role in Aaron Sorkin's upcoming HBO drama as Leona Lansing, the CEO of a cable news network's parent company. Sounds like a pretty close match to her third husband Ted Turner, no? If Leona Lansing starts colorizing old news reels, we'll know the parallel is intentional. [TVLine]
