Berry says she is thrilled that for "five months a year I'll get to live with and play this incredibly intelligent and vulnerable woman. And for the remainder of the year, I'll continue to look for other roles that move me as deeply as this one."
The role is also well-timed. Berry is expecting her first child with husband Olivier Martinez sometime this fall, giving her time to get in shape for the role and spend some quality time with her new baby son.
