Bell has joined the pilot “House Of Lies,” opposite Don Cheadle, who will play Marty, “a self-loathing highly successful management consultant from a top-tier firm who is never above using any means necessary to get his clients the information they want” in the dark comedy. Kristen will play an Ivy League graduate who works for Marty’s firm.
Rounding out the cast are Dawn Olivieri, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Glynn Turman, and Donis Leonard Jr.. If picked up to series, I’m not sure how this program will fit in with Showtime’s steady diet of boobs, drugs, boobs, sex, boobs, bare butts, booze, boobs and murder. Can we assume that Showtime is maturing? Because that would be some bullshit right there. (Deadline)
