Sarah Silverman, the potty-mouthed comedienne known for making doody jokes in her stand-up routine, is up for some Sex.
Showtime's Masters of Sex has booked Silverman for a recurring role in the second season of the acclaimed drama, the network announced Monday. She'll play a character named Helen. No additional details about her character were provided.
Silverman broke into show business as the female comedian who wasn't afraid to keep up with the guys when it came to off-color humor, including playful but blue bits about religion, sex, and excrement. She's since broadened her career to include acting roles in Michelle Williams' indie film Take This Waltz and the animated box-office hit Wreck-It-Ralph, as well as getting an Emmy nomination for The Sarah Silverman Show. NBC recently passed on Silverman's pilot Susan 313, which was in contention for last year's crop of comedies.
Masters of Sex returns for Season 2 on Sunday, July 13 on Showtime. Need to catch up on the series? Watch the latest episode right here.
