Brooke ShieldsGet ready for a bigger (and better) Fort Marshall in Season 7! It was just announced that Brooke Shields is joining the new cast, which includes Jesse McCartney, Burgess Jenkins, Joshua Henry, Torrey DeVitto, Ashanti and Elle McLemore.

Brooke will portray brash and brilliant Air Force Colonel Katherine "Kat" Young. A crack C-17 pilot who can hold her own in the boys club atmosphere of the military, she’s hardly touched down in her new assignment at Joint Base Marshall Bring before she clashes with Army General Michael Holden (Brian McNamara). Never one to step away from a fight, Kat is a fierce advocate for the Air Force as she and Holden jockey for their respective branches at the highest levels of power on base. Only after their initial skirmishes does Holden learn of Kat’s tragic past, discovering they have more in common than he thought.

So what do you think? Who else would you like to see on Season 7?
