Discuss the cast in other roles.

Of course everybody knows Duchovny from The X Files but he was also in a few episode of Twin Peaks and guest starrred as Carrie's psycho ex-boyfriend on Sex and the City.

Also, Gracie (Madeline Zima) from The Nanny and Evan Handler (the annoying writer from Studio 60 and another SATC alumnus) are part of the cast.

The women that played Evan Handler's wife in Californication (I'm guessig that was his wife) was the wife on the show Luckie Lewie which only lasted one season.

She was also Rebecca in Say Anything. (John Cusack's friend who wasn't Lili Taylor).

Evan Handler played Dave, a mental patient, in the LOST episode of the same name.

Also, Gracie (Madeline Zima) from The Nanny


Holy crap, I thought the actress looked familiar. Since I haven't seen her in anything else, it's a bit jarring to think of sweet little Gracie all grown up and humping Moody.

I'm looking forward to the Duchovney/Handler scenes. They're both great with subtle and sarcastic humor and based on the little I saw of them together in the pilot they seem to play off of each other well.

I believe the woman you are referring to, is Pamela Adlon who voices Bobby Hill in "King of the Hill".

Duchovny and naked women on premium cable makes me think of Red Shoe Diaries.

If he gets a dog and walks along the beach, it's practically the same show, just with a little less saxophone.

Duchovny was never naked in Red Shoe. Actually Californication is very good. I really want to know what will happen with Hank I think that Weeds and Cali are the best hour on TV.

Man, when i checked imdb to see who that hot chick with her tits bouncing(I guess they are real) was, I got the shock of my life when I found out it was that little kid from the Nanny. Time flies. I think it was all the more jarring bevcause I only checked out the initial seasons of the Nanny and so a few years later, this is a totally grown up woman. Almost as shocking when I found out the trailer trash mom in Gummo was the girl from Days from Heaven.

Red Shoes Diaries was trash. It was the usual Zalman King bullshit where you had soft focus images of some nudity edited in a flash, pretentious narratives, bad sax music. Californication actually has better quality "porn" compared to Red Shoes Diaries.

Twin Peaks was where I first saw Duchovny, in this wonderful scene described in the episode's recap:

So, the door opens, and in walks David Duchovny. In drag. No matter how ready you are for it, be honest, it still makes you snicker, am I right? Because deep in your heart, you're twelve, just like me. Yeah, I thought so. Duchovny looks...uh, brown. Brown hair, brown outfit. Bright red lipstick, though. He smiles and says, "Coop," affectionately. Everyone stares. Coop finally says, "Dennis?" The response is, "It's a long story, but actually, I prefer Denise, if you don't mind."

On a very shallow note, Duchovny was smokin' hot in drag. I'm really enjoying seeing him in a different kind of role from X-Files.
As for Pamela Adlon, I was distracted all through Lucky Louie because of her being the voice of Bobby on King of the Hill. IMO, though, she was by far the best thing about Lucky Louie. And now I have the image of Bobby Hill being married to Evan Handler, and am scarred for life.

DD was also in Playing God, way back in the mid-90s, with Angelina Jolie...long before she was Brangelina.

Her maiden name was Pamela Segull and she also played Dolores Rebchuck in the movie Grease 2. She was Paulette's (Lorna Luft) younger sister. It was her first movie role. When I saw a re-run of it over the weekend, I actually figured out that she was Marcy on Californication. [shudders] Frightening.

Also, I just realized that the actress who played Sonja this week is Paula Marshall. She played Jenny, the cheoreoanimator / pseudo-girlfriend of Jeremy, on Sports Night. It bugged me all day!

That's right. Was Timothy Hutton in that also? I've forgotten.

The guy who plays Karen's fiancee is Damian Young who I recognize from the short lived HBO series, The Comeback as B-list actress Valerie Cherish's (Lisa Kudrow) patient husband Mark and he was also in a few WaMu commercials.

David Duchovny and Mimi Rogers were a born-again husband and wife in The Rapture. Kind of depressing movie to me.

And speaking of Brangelina, DD was also in Kalifornia as part of the couple being terrorized by freaky Brad and Juliette Lewis.

Natascha McElhone played a doctor, 'Sarah from Israel', in Laurel Canyon opposite Christian Bale. They had an interesting scene in a parking lot. Frances McDormand played his mom and Kate Beckinsale was the fiancée.

Has anybody here seen Duchnovy's movie The TV Set? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473709/

If not, I encourage you to go out and watch it and see to what extent - if at all - it inadvertently comments on the television show that is Californification.

If so, I encourage everyone to monitor the show's inherent phoniness and lame contrivances- possibly on a weak by weak basis.

Whilst the TV Set primarily concerns itself with the way network tv produces shows to appeal to the lowest common denominator, I humbly submit that Showtime is especially guilty with respect to this show. Californification looks to me as if it has been fine tuned by a network trying to cover all of its bases. In fact, it looks as if it is similarly pandering to ensure mass appeal and manipulation of responses.
