The season premiere of "Louie" on Thursday night (June 28) featured a couple of long and painfully funny scenes between the title character (Louis C.K.) and a soon-to-be ex-girlfriend named April, played by Gaby Hoffmann.Yes, the little girl from "Field of Dreams," "Uncle Buck" and "Sleepless in Seattle." That Gaby Hoffmann.Hoffmann, who's now 30(!), calls Louie out on his unwillingness to say he wants to break up, and in their second scene together she delivers a killer speech about why Louie's being such a wuss. She comes over to his apartment to pick up a laptop she left behind, and seeing Louie's injuries from a motorcycle accident, takes care of him for a bit. That prompts a half-hearted "Stay ..." from Louie, to which she replies:"Do you realize you might be wasting four years of both of our lives because you can't just say 'Bye, see ya' right now, because in this second, that feels... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/06/gaby-hoffmann-is-all-grown-up-on-louie.html

'Louie': Louis C.K. discusses keeping his show unpredictable, his TV ex-wife and more

He'll be part of a three-part story that begins in episode 10, C.K. says, and is "what we put the most effort into" in making Season 3."I don't want to say anything about any of it, because it's got a lot of guest stars and a lot happens. It's big turn for the character and for -- it's a cool, fun story, I just don't want to talk about it," C.K. says, laughing. "Jerry did a part in that, and what he did was very different from what you're used to seeing him do. Jerry did a really great performance -- I was really... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/06/louie-louis-ck-teases-jerry-seinfelds-very-different-guest-role.html
