Mary Steenburgen Cast in BORED TO DEATH

HBO’s comedy  BORED TO DEATH  is now a family affair in the household of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, according to Yahoo! News. Danson has reported that his wife (Steenburgen) is joining the cast for the new season of the HBO comedy due to air in the fall. Steenburgen will play the vocal coach whom Danson’s character, George Christopher, hires after he decides to sing at a charity fundraiser where “Man of La Mancha” is being performed.

George's Doctor/Girlfriend Catches Him with Ex on 'Bored to Death' (VIDEO)

Before George has surgery for prostate cancer, he and Priscilla are in the throes of a rather intimate hospital visit. "I am so glad that possibly the last erection of my life is with you," he tells her on 'Bored to Death' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO). A voice off-camera says, "I guess that's your line with all the girls -- sounded so sincere this morning." George's doctor/girlfriend (Jessica Hecht) has caught him with his ex, though George says they were "just snuggling for old time's sake -- that's all." Of course, Priscilla isn't pleased with this explanation, but there's nothing she can do. Dr. Kenwood, on the other hand ... a little payback during surgery, perhaps? "It should all go well -- I hope," she says ominously. Source & Video

Bored of Jonathan Ames

The New York City novelist created, writes and executive-produces HBO's twee sitcom about a New York City novelist named Jonathan Ames (meta alert!) who moonlights as a private dick. He even cowrote the show's theme song with star Jason Schwartzman. Plus, he guest-starred in this week's episode as Irwin, the new lover who came between comic-book artist Ray (Zach Galifianakis, who must regret having signed on for this limp gig before he became a movie star) and his ex-girlfriend, Leah (Heather Burns). Oh, and did I mention that Ames did his entire performance in the nude, complete with a frontal shot? The fact that Ray justifiably mocks the size of Irwin's manhood doesn't make this bit of stunt casting any less self-indulgent. Do you think Jonathan Ames is beating this in-joke to Death?
