Following the recent announcement that Michael Imperioli ('Sopranos') has joined 'Californication' for the upcoming seventh season, two more actors have signed on as well. Heather Graham ('Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me') has joined the Showtime series for the entirety of the seventh season and Mary Lynn Rajskub ('24,' 'How to Be a Gentleman') has signed on for a three-episode story arc.
Graham made waves as Roller Girl in the critically-acclaimed feature film 'Boogie Nights' and has earned her stripes both in television and features ever since. Graham appears in the upcoming 'The Hangover Part III' reprising her role from the first film. On 'Californication,' Graham will play a woman from Hank’s (David Duchovny) past whose arrival upends his life. No further details have been made available about her character, however given how many women from Hank's past have weighed heavily on the plot of 'Californication' over the past six seasons, one hopes for some sort of twist this time around.
Rajskub has been booking several guest appearances on hit television series of late, including on 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'The Mentalist.' Rajskub will play a neurotic writer over the course of three 'Californication' episodes, perhaps working alongside Hank or maybe seeking his writing advice. Either way, it's likely that Rajskub's character will end up having a sexual relationship with Mr. Hank Moody.
The seventh season of 'Californication' is slated for twelve episodes; production begins this month.
