Interviews with 'Nurse Jackie' cast members for Season 2 Premiere from Thomas Attila Lewis on Vimeo.

To kick off the second season of their popular series "Nurse Jackie", Showtime held a charity fundraiser in NYC's Gotham Hall. The "Nurse Jackie" Rx Games was an invite to watch real nurses from NY Presbyterian, Mt. Sinai, Sloan Kettering, NYU Medical Center and St. Vincent's and nursing students from Columbia Medical School, NYU College of Nursing and Hunter/Bellevue race against the clock as they competed in a course consisting of fun, medical-themed activities for $50,000 for their preferred charity with proceeds to benefit The American Cancer Society, The Michael J. Fox Foundation, Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation and Amber Watch among others.

At the event we managed to grab a few minutes to talk about the upcoming season with cast members Peter Facinelli, Edie Falco, Merritt Wever, Stephen Wallem, Lenny Jacobsen, and Arjun Gupta. Season 2 of "Nurse Jackie" begins tonight at 10pm on Showtime.

We've seen the first several episodes and, as Edie Falco puts it in the above video, things get very complicated around Jackie Peyton: man trouble, addiction trouble, trouble with the kids, etc. - and she's not the only one experiencing complications. Peter Facinelli's Dr. Cooper gets into even more (highly comedic) hot water and supporting cast members Lenny Jacobsen and Arjun Gupta begin to see their characters' involvement expand considerably.
