Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson

On Showtime's House of Lies (Sundays, 10/9c), Clyde has always been the pod's comic relief. But can he step it up and be the top dog? Viewers are about to find out.

"You get to find the different shades of Clyde," actor-writer Ben Schwartz tells TVGuide.com of Sunday's episode. "Since the beginning, Clyde is someone who's after Marty's job. He recognizes that Marty is a friend of his, but I still think he would do anything he can to get to the next level, to get to be in the position that Marty's at. You see that he really is as cutthroat and is willing to sacrifice a lot."

House of Lies Boss: Season Finale Will Leave Everything "In a Terrible State of Disarray"

House of Lies

If there's one thing House of Lies viewers have learned about Marty Kaan (Don Cheadle) and his "pod" at Galweather & Stearn, it's that they'll go to any lengths necessary to get the job done.

Kristen Bell Talks About Getting Dirty in House of Lies, Hope for a Veronica Mars Film

Kristen Bell

She curses, she gets lap dances, she makes raunchy sex jokes. For Kristen Bell's latest role on Showtime's House of Lies, it's safe to say her squeaky clean Veronica Mars persona has officially left the building.

"Being in a strip club in the middle of the afternoon with the lights on was a little unnerving. There's a scene where I have to dance sexily around in my underwear that made me very nervous," Bell tells TVGuide.com. The part "scared me a little bit."

In the half-hour comedy, which follows a team of management consultants and stars Don Cheadle, Bell plays whip-smart, cutthroat "schmooze operator" Jeannie Van Der Hooven. House of Lies marks Bell's first series regular TV project since she played a teen sleuth in cult favorite Veronica Mars, which was axed in 2007. On the big screen, she's co-starred in films Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Burlesque and still voices the title character of  Gossip Girl. "I was excited that Jeannie was very, very different and much more provocative [than Veronica Mars]," Bell says. "It's important to show... read more
