TV Bites: Carla Gugino Gets a Dose of Californication


· When Hank Moody returns for his fourth season of Californication, he will have two new female characters to charm. Carla Gugino has been cast as the first, a likeable corporate lawyer who could help David Duchovny's character navigate the legal system. Addison Timlin (Cashmere Mafia) will play the second, an actress who crosses Moody's path when she stars in a film within the Showtime series. Both actresses will have season-long arcs. [DHD]
