Carla Gugino joins 'Californication'

carla-guginoImage Credit: Ethan Miller/WireImage.comCarla Gugino will have a season four-long arc on Showtime’s Californication, Deadline Hollywood reports. She’ll play a “likeable corporate attorney” and new love interest for David Duchovny’s Hank Moody. Hank was arrested in the season three finale after physically assaulting Mia’s boyfriend/manager, who’d suggested Hank and Mia come clean about having sex when she was 16 — and her blackmailing him into letting the world think she wrote his novel about their affair — on Oprah. (Hank finally had to tell Karen about the secret — on the eve of them moving back to New York together as a family — and, well, that didn’t go well.)

What do you think? If anyone could make a corporate attorney “likeable,” it would be Gugino. She has that sweet face, and the rare ability to see-saw between family-friendly fare (the Spy Kids trilogy, Night at the Museum, Race to Witch Mountain) and decidedly-adult offerings (Entourage, Watchmen, Women in Trouble). I think she’ll be an interesting match for Moody — she’s someone the audience will feel protective of, and yet trust to take care of herself.

Cashmere Mafia‘s Addison Timlin has also been cast in a recurring role.

    I thought she was already on Californication. Who did Hank F and then she puked on the painting? Must have been someone else…

      That was Paula Marshal.

      I totally thought the same thing when i first read it.

        That’s because they were both on Spin City and played characters that dated Mike played by Michael J. Fox.

    I’ve always been a fan of her work (“Karen Sisco”) — she’ll be a great addition to “Californication”. Plus, it will be nice to see an age-appropriate love interest for Hank!

    The hot-to-the-touch Carla Gugino on nudity-happy “Californication”? (Ummm, yes please.)

    • Ramo

      Mm, I may go back and watch Sin City tonight. Yahtzee!

    • James

      My thoughts exactly!

  • Eddie

    Always thought she was kind of a bitch on Entourage….but this should be interesting

  • Zo

    I don’t know why this show isn’t more of a hit. It’s laugh-out-loud funny, witty, smart, moving… and I haven’t even mentioned the blush-worthy sex scenes… I love this show, and am REALLY grateful to Showtime for not axing it despite its low ratings. (Although I am still angry over the too-brief life of “Huff” and that season 2 STILL is not on DVD)… Anyway, last season’s finale of “Californication” – it was so gut-wrenching. Man, those two just can’t get their sh/t together! I’m too invested in them, I think!

      Season 2 is on DVD

    Oooh I like the new hair style in that picture. She looks va-va-voom!

  • Rob

    Saw her on Broadway few years ago in Desire Under the Elms…she blew my mind! was amazing

  • David

    When is this show going to have some HLS?
