There is a new nurse coming to Nurse Jackie in the third season so hints executive producer of the show Liz Brixius. The nurse’s name will be Kelly and she will be played by The Wire star Gbenga Akinnagbe. The character will be sometimes bad and sometimes good but one thing we know for sure he will cause trouble for Nurse Jackie played by Edie Falco. Kelly will make friends with the other members of the staff but will not pander to Jackie.
“This is a guy that she’s not going to be able to win over,” she said. “He’s not just going to fall in line. However, Brixius added that Kelly will need everyone to like him, hinting: “He’s not what he seems.”
