House Of Lies is adding two actors to its cast.
The West Wing and In Plain Sight star Mary McCormack and Justified alum Alicia Witt have landed guest roles on the upcoming fourth season of the Showtime comedy, TVWise has learned.
Mary McCormack has been cast as Denna Altshuler, a tough, highly successful white knight investor who Marty recruits to help save Kaan & Associates; while Alicia Witt will play Maya Lindholm, a brilliant engineer who comes to Marty’s rescuewhen he’s in a bind. The duo are the latest actors to sign up for guest roles in the new season, joining the likes of Larenz Tate (Rush), Demetri Martin (The Daily Show with John Stewart) and Valorie Curry (The Following).
Based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time, House of Lies was created by Matthew Carnahan and follows consultant Marty Kaan, a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. This quest is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his “Pod” of co-workers and drama from his demented ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri), all while being a loving father to his gender-fluid teenage son. The comedy series stars Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Dawn Olivieri, Donis Leonard Jr. and Glynn Turman.
