Noted film and television star Carla Gugino (Watchmen) will suit up as a sexy defense attorney on the 4th season of the hit SHOWTIME comedy CALIFORNICATION. Gugino will be a guest star in 10 of the series’ 12 episodes.
CALIFORNICATION stars David Duchovny in his Golden Globe®-winning role as hedonistic novelist Hank Moody who struggles to raise his teenage daughter (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). This season, Hank will have to deal with the fall-out from his one-night-stand with then-underage pseudo step-daughter Mia (Madeline Zima) going public. His epic legal troubles force him to enlist the aid of hot, high-powered lawyer Abby (Gugino) to keep him out of the big house but can he keep his hands off her?
Fan and critic favorite Gugino has starred in a wide range of films, including the megahit Spy Kids trilogy; the blockbuster Night at the Museum; as ‘Sally Jupiter’ in Watchmen; and, most recently, opposite the likes of Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino in Righteous Kill. She earned a SAG® nomination for her work opposite Russell Crowe in American Gangster. Her television credits include lead roles in the critically acclaimed series Karen Sisco and Threshold; and memorable guest turns in Spin City; Chicago Hope, and Entourage. Her theater credits include “After the Fall,” opposite Peter Krause; and Tennessee Williams’s “Suddenly Last Summer,” opposite Blythe Danner.
