Griffin Dunne, who will appear on the upcoming season of Damages, has joined Showtime's upcoming House of Lies, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on Martin Kihn's tell-all House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time, the dark comedy stars Don Cheadle as Marty, a cutthroat consultant who uses any means necessary to procure information for his clients. Dunne will play a renowned consultant who teams up with Marty's firm.
The fourth season of Damages isn't coming until next month, but it will be well worth the wait judging by the emotional trailers.
This season features Chris Messina as an old high school chum of Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) who suffers from PTSD. In the trailers, we get glimpses of the drama to come, including nudity of the non-titillating variety, hints of torture and John Goodman playing a very loud, corrupt and scary military contractor. We can't wait!
Season 4 of Damages will premiere July 13 on DirecTV.
"The opportunity to be on DirecTV this season allows us to explore another chapter in the lives of Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons, and push the envelope in terms of storytelling and content," series creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler said Wednesday in a statement.
The show will be carried Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Audience Network, which is the new name for DirecTV's 101 Network.

And suddenly we're in the tense, matter-of-fact New York medical office of Dr. Doug Hanson (Stanley Tucci), where a mother is being fed gigantic neurological terms she doesn't understand and Hanson is as cold as ice, but calm and collected at the same time, omitting any emotion or feeling, having not a care in the world other than the work at hand.We meet Penny who sells medical equipment someone finally able to break Hanson's straight face with a warm greeting in the locker room. A past fling perhaps?Things get interesting and personal when Hanson is scrubbing in and sees a vision of a little girl holding a sand pail. Who is she? A former patient he wasn't able to save? His daughter? It's as if he can turn it on and off when she disappears as he goes into ...
