Exclusive: Sopranos and Greek Stars to Make Trouble for Californication's Hank
Drea de Matteo, Scott Michael Foster
Californication is adding two characters who will create potential headaches for Hank Moody in very different ways.
Californication: What's ahead in Season 5?
Emmy winner Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos) and Greek's Scott Michael Foster will guest-star on the Showtime comedy's upcoming fifth season, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. De Matteo will appear in one episode as Holly, a foul-mouthed (what else?) stripper who spends a wild day with Hank (David Duchovny). In Hank's world, wild days never end well.
Meanwhile, Foster will recur throughout the season as Tyler, the new boyfriend of Hank's daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin). As if dating Hank's baby girl isn't bad enough, Tyler's obnoxious, cocky and rich-snob attitude also rubs Hank the wrong way.
De Matteo and Foster join the previously announced guest cast that includes rapper-actor RZA and Stomp the Yard's Meagan Good as a hip-hop mogul and his protégé, respectively. Justified's Natalie Zea will also recur as a love interest for Hank.

De Matteo is best known for her role as Adriana on The Sopranos and for her recent one-season arc on Desperate Housewives. She also co-starred opposite Matt LeBlanc on the short-lived Friends spin-off, Joey, and recurred on Sons of Anarchy as the drug addict ex-wife of Charlie Hunnam's Jax.
Besides his role as Cappie on ABC Family's Greek, Foster has also appeared on The Game, Parenthood and Law & Order: Los Angeles.
