Cynthia Nixon is nothing if not surprising!

Now, it looks like Cynthia's career is going just as well as her personal life, because she's landed a leading role in Ridley & Tony Scott's eight-hour Starz miniseries World Without End.
The show is based on Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth, and it co-stars Miranda Richardson, Ben Chaplin, and The Duchess' Charlotte Riley.
