“I like to work. I feel better when I’m working,” says the Oscar-winning Marcia Gay Harden, 54, whose credits also include TV’s “The Newsroom and “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit,” and the movies “Parkland,” “Mystic River” and “Into The Wild.” “This business is like a roller coaster: up and down.
