Showtime has set a return date for Nurse Jackie (March 22) and named a couple big-time guest stars, including Harvey Fierstein.
Those announcements make us happy. This one does not:
The series has dropped Mohammed “Mo-Mo” De La Cruz as a regular. The gay nurse, played by Haaz Sleiman, won't return at all in season two.
Michael Ausiello spoke to a Showtime source that confirmed the departure, while a rep for Sleiman said producers felt “the character’s storyline ran its course... We were surprised. It came out of left field.”
We'll miss Mo-Mo's sass and advice for Jackie. Will you?
