Susan Sarandon has joined Showtime’s dark comedy The Big C for a three-episode arc during the show's third season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Oscar winner for Dead Man Walking and unforgettable star of Thelma and Louise, Sarandon will play Joy, a cancer survivor who uses her story to motivate others –especially the show’s protagonist, Laura Linney’s Cathy, reports THR.

"She's another cancer survivor who has used her cancer experience in a unique way trying to inspire other people," The Big C creator Darlene Hunt told THR about Sarandon’s character. "She makes Cathy question whether she's doing enough with her own cancer experience.”
