by at . Comments

An Oscar winner is coming to The Big C.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Susan Sarandon has landed a recurring role on the Showtime hit. She'll come on board season three as Joy, a cancer survivor "who has used her cancer experience in a unique way trying to inspire other people," creator and executive producer Darlene Hunt tells the magazine, adding:

"She makes Cathy question whether she's doing enough with her own cancer experience."

Sarandon - whose fake battle with this disease did not end so well in 1998's Stepmom - joins another veteran, Victor Garber, as a season three guest star.

The actress made her impressive name in the movies, but has also appeared over the years on episodes of ER, Friends and 30 Rock.

The Big C kicks off its new season on April 8.
