Exclusive: Kristen Bell Wooed By Michael Rady and Nick Stahl on Showtime's House of Lies

Kristen Bell’s dance card on House of Lies is officially pretty damn full.

The new Showtime comedy has cast Melrose Place‘s Michael Rady and Carnivàle‘s Nick Stahl as love interests for Bell’s corporate consultant character, Jeannie, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Rady will play the recurring role of Wes, a moneyed golden boy who may be a bit too conservative for Jeannie. Stahl, meanwhile, will guest star in one episode as Kurt, a musician who makes Jeannie question what she wants out of life and love (my guess: no-strings sex with a hot musician).

Lies, based on Martin Kihn’s hit tell-all book How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time, revolves around dueling corporate management consulting firms. The cast also includes Don Cheadle, Ben Schwartz, Josh Lawson, Dawn Olivieri and Glynn Turman.

    When does the show start?? When you go to sho.com, it says “coming this fall” for Homeland, but only “coming soon” for House of Lies… I don’t wanna wait till next year to see the show :(

    The name House Of Lies sounds like a George R. R. Martin book.

  5. Sam says:

    Carnivale was/is my favorite HBO show! He’s so cute.

  6. Bee says:

    i really really hope it starts in the fall, but i’m guessing it’ll be paired with nurse jackie for a february/march debut next year.

  7. PaulH says:

    Now let’s have a trailer for the series, Showtime!!

  8. Romain says:

    I’ll definitely be checking this show out. Love Kristen Bell in everything she appears in and Nick Stahl is a really good actor who doesn’t get half the recognition he deserves IMHO. I wasn’t too impressed with Michael Rady on the Melrose Place revival, but that probably had more to do with his character being irritating than with his performance.
