Rob Lowe will be paying homage to Brad Pitt by sporting his bohemian, off-screen look, in an upcoming episode of CALIFORNICATION. Rob Lowe will guest star in three episodes of the upcoming 4th season of Californication as an unpredictable mega-watt movie star 'Eddie Nero,' a contender to play Hank (David Duchovny) in the film version of his blockbuster novel.

Lenny Kravitz's daughter, Zoe Kravitz, has been tapped for a recurring role on Californication, Entertainment Weekly reports. The 21-year-old will play Zoe, a wild musician who recruits Becca (Madeline Martin) for an all-girl band. She is slated to appear in six episodes of the Showtime drama, starring David Duchovny. Kravitz, whose mother is actress Lisa Bonet, recently appeared in The Greatest and will next head to the big screen in Twelve, due out next month. Californication will return for its fourth season this fall. Source Here
Perhaps planning for life after FlashForward, if that ABC drama gets canceled, Michael Ealy has joined the cast of Californication. The actor will appear for five episodes next season, playing a love interest for Natascha McElhone's Karen on the Showtime hit. Ealy came aboard FlashForward halfway through its first season and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his role on the critically-acclaimed mini series Sleeper Cell. Earlier this week, we announced that Rob Lowe will also guest star on the fouth season of Californication. He'll portray a movie star hoping to portray David Duchovny's character in a film.

I am already a huge fan of Rob Lowe's post-Brothers & Sisters career. First, he booked a recurring role on NBC's Parks and Recreation to showcase his comedic side (his first episode airs May 13, and he plays a state auditor); now, The Wrap reports he'll guest star on the fourth season of Showtime's Californication. He'll play 'Eddie Nero, an imbalanced yet charismatic, award-winning movie star who finds himself in contention to play Hank Moody (David Duchovny) in the film version of [F---ing & Punching].' It's a one-episode gig that could be expanded, and I'm already confident saying it needs to be. How delicious is seeing Lowe, no stranger to a sex scandal, guest star on Californication period, let alone as an actor who could be cast as Hank in the adaptation of the book based on his dalliance with then 16-year-old Mia? I'm picturing Duchovny and Lowe (channeling his St. Elmo's Fire and About Last Night days) trying to out cool one another, and I like it. A lot. To Read More Click Here .
While the fourth season of Californication won't premiere on Showtime for months, the show has announced a pair of major casting decisions. Carla Gugino and Addison Timlin have both nabbed multiple-episode arcs on the David Duchovny dramedy. Gugino, who recurred on Entourage as Vince's agent, will play a new love interest for Hank Mood. Her character will be a corporate attorney. Timlin, meanwhile, will appear in eight episodes. She'll portray a movie actress. Source Here
Earlier today, we were at the press day for The Joneses (which we'll have more on closer to the April 16th release date), starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny as a seemingly perfect family who moves into a suburban neighborhood and immediately impresses everyone they meet, but who, in reality, are really a fake family, commissioned by a marketing company to introduce new products around the world. During the interview, Duchovny took some time to give an update on where his Californication character, Hank Moody, will be going in Season 4 of the popular Showtime series, which starts filming on April 19th for a possible September premiere. He also said that he really enjoys getting to work with new guest stars each season, and that the upcoming season promises some great ones. Check out what he had to say after the jump: To Read More Click Here .
This week, television taught us that all good things must come to an end. Californication's Hank Moody made a difficult choice. The brothers of Nip/Tuck performed an ethically questionable surgery for personal gain. So You Think You Can Dance finally acknowledged the high art that is krumping. And Dexter , a show about a serial killer, made death surprising again. Welcome to Coolest Moments: Finale Fever Edition. 9. Worst Production Values: Dear Oprah Winfrey's Producers: In the future, when you are interviewing the president of the United States at the White House, even if it's for a Christmas special, please remember to change the filters and camera set-ups from "Tearful Movie Star/Victim of Tragedy Tell-All" to "Important Political Figure." A wartime nation dealing with a shaky economy does not want to see its leader in loving, dewy-eyed, soft-focused close-up. Save those flourishes for Travolta's next visit. Thanks! Love, Us 8. Best Confession: In the closing moments of Californication's third season, Hank Moody gets into a fistfight with Mia's agent. Backed into a corner by the extortionist suit, Hank admits to Karen that he slept with Mia when she was 16, just before the police show up to arrest Hank for assault. Talk about violating the penal code! 7. Best Solution to a Situation: Conan O'Brien, not satisfied with the moniker the Jersey Shore nickname generator gave him, asks Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino for a replacement. The washboarded stud dubs the Tonight Show host "The Solution." "I love it!" O'Brien gushes. "Ladies, if you have a problem, I am The Solution!" Next up: transforming him into a "guido." 6. Grossest Surgery: Christian and Sean face an ethical dilemma on Nip/Tuck when a district attorney offers them a deal: If they perform liposuction on a death-row inmate who is too heavy for lethal injection, their son Matt will be released from prison. They agree, and the subsequent surgery scene is beyond graphic - even by FX standards. The surgeons remove layers of bloody flesh like they're folding bed sheets. After watching, you won't need lipo; you'll never eat again. 5. Nicest Surprise: The Sing-Off sounds too corny to be good. But a group performance of Queen's "Under Pressure" in the premiere episode demonstrates the show's cool factor. It's like watching really good karaoke, but sober and with better wardrobe.

Season three of Californication ended with a punch to Hank's stomch; or maybe his groin, to be more specific. On the season finale, just as the womanizer chose to settle down with Karen, he received a surprise visit from Mia. The end result, and final scene, was of Hank being dragged away in handcuffs, as Karen and Becca look on helplessly. "I always thought that it would be the right endpoint," series creator Tom Kapinos told TV Guide. "That secret with Mia - the fact that [Hank] slept with her and Karen doesn't know about it - is such a huge part of the show and was a huge part of the pilot. To a degree, by the time you get to Season 3, the audience had kind of forgotten about it. So it felt like the right time to bring it back. On another show you might wait to the end of the series to answer that question, but I always vaguely knew that's how I wanted the season to end." To Read More Click Here .
After being largely ignored at the Emmys, HBO's vampire drama "True Blood" has landed a nomination for the Producers Guild of America awards. In the Norman Felton producer of the year category for drama series, "Blood" faces awards juggernaut "Mad Men" and three other best series Emmy nominees: ABC's "Lost," AMC's "Breaking Bad" and Showtime's "Dexter." In the Danny Thomas producer of the year comedy series category, another dominant awards player, NBC's "30 Rock," is nominated alongside NBC's "The Office," Showtime's "Californication" and "Weeds" and HBO's "Entourage." CBS' veteran newsmagazine "60 Minutes" leads the pack in the nonfiction TV category, joined by four unscripted series: Discovery Channel's "Deadliest Catch," A&E TV's "Intervention," Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the 'D' List" and Showtime's "This American Life." The fourth series category for the 21st PGA Awards, announced Monday, is a head-scratcher. Called "live entertainment and competition TV," the category features four reality series: CBS' Emmy-winning "The Amazing Race," Fox's "American Idol," Lifetime's "Project Runway" and Bravo's "Top Chef," as well as Comedy Central's news satire "The Colbert Report." The winners will be announced at the PGA Awards ceremony on January 24 at the Hollywood Palladium. Source
Many are not keen on the idea of watching yet another X-Files movie considering the 2008 film The X-Files: I Want to Believe only garnered mixed reviews and didn't prove to be a box office success. However, lead star David Duchovny remains optimistic in doing another installment of the infamous franchise that catapulted him to stardom. "I was happy with it... I have nothing but respect for [X-Files creator] Chris Carter and the writing staff," Duchovny told The Daily Beast, defending last year's movie project. "As far as the X-Files movie I'd like to do next, if we get a chance to do it, would be a return to the heart and soul of the mythology, which is the alien-oriented conspiracy. I think it's natural for The X-Files to have another movie in 2012, so we'll see if we get to do it," Duchovny said. If the movie pushes through, the third X-Files film is rumored to hit theaters on December 22, 2012. For now, though, David Duchovny is concentrating on the small screen as sex addict novelist Hank Moody on Showtime's Californication, which is currently on its third season. Californication, which has won several awards including one Emmy Award and one Golden Globe Award, has already been renewed for a fourth season due to its rating spike though Duchovny believes that the show will still continue for another two to three years. "One of the great things about doing cable is that going past seven years is not part of the network's financial model, so I'm not afraid we'll go too long," Duchovny said. "[Californication creator] Tom Kapinos and I have a similar vision of how we'd like to go out." Source Here
