Scene Stealer: Why We Love The Comeback's Robert Michael Morris

Robert Michael Morris

He Plays: Mickey Deane, personal hairdresser and trusty confidant to has-been actress Valerie Cherish (Lisa Kudrow) on the HBO comedy The Comeback. "Mickey isn't just a great friend to Valerie," Robert Michael Morris says. "He's much more like a mother — and he has the patience of a saint." Make that a Saint Bernard. "We should all have a pal who is as unconditionally loyal," he adds. "Fans always say, 'Valerie is so mean to Mickey!' but he doesn't see it that way. He would walk through fire for her."

Lisa Kudrow, Web Therapy

Fiona Wallice is affected, self-entitled and narcissistic. She is a former businesswoman who stumbled into therapy and then when she found other people's lives too tedious to tolerate, she modified her job into a new "treatment modality," she calls "Web Therapy."
