Thomas Sadoski jumped onto Twitter to welcome the two newest members of the Newsroom family, Patton Oswalt and Rosemarie DeWitt (and on-screen girlfriend Alison Pill echoed his sentiments by re-tweeting). Details of their characters have already surfaced, just be aware of minor spoilers if you choose to read them.
