Rosanna Arquette (Desperately Seeking Susan, Pulp Fiction, Crash) has joined the cast of Ryan Murphy and Netflix's Ratched. The series which has a 2-season, 18-episode order at Netflix begins filming on Wednesday per Sarah Paulson.

Arquette has been cast in a multi-episode arc. Character details are being kept under wraps.

Paulson has shared a lovely Instagram post on the actress below.

Arquette joins previously announced cast Finn Wittrock, Jon Jon Briones, Charlie Carver, Judy Davis, Harriet Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Hunter Parrish, Amanda Plummer, Corey Stoll, Sharon Stone, and Sarah Paulson.

The story of Rosanna Arquette is a triumphant one- but it’s also disturbing. She was one of the first women to publicly speak out about Harvey Weinstein. I was stirred by several of her recent interviews where she was quoted as saying she couldn't find work -or representation -this seems a direct consequence of her bravery. I am producing a new Netflix show, RATCHED, with Ryan Murphy- and we decided this could not stand. Her body of work -from Desperately Seeking Susan to Pulp Fiction and beyond, has always been deeply inspiring to both of us. So there will be a multi-episode arc for this extraordinary actress. Ratched starts shooting Wednesday and I say with great pride- welcome to our family, Rosanna. I am thrilled to be in a position, due to the empowerment of my friend and collaborator, Ryan Murphy, not to just act in a piece, but hire the talent showcased in it, as well.
