Margulies joins Stand Up Guys film

Former ER star Julianna Margulies is set to play a nurse again in a new movie.

The actress - who found fame as nurse Carol Hathaway on the long-running medical drama - has been cast alongside Hollywood heavyweights Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in Stand Up Guys, reports Deadline.

The movie follows two ageing hitmen who have one last wild night, in which they hit up a brothel and steal some cars, before one has to kill the other.

Julianna, who is now best known for her award-winning TV show The Good Wife, will be back in medical mode as a nurse who is the daughter of Arkin's character.
