‘Californication’ Season 7: ‘Project X’s’ Oliver Cooper Joins the Cast
Though Showtime’s long-running dramedy ‘Californication‘ won’t premiere its seventh season until sometime in 2014, we’ve already borne witness to some major Hollywood talent signing on to Hank Moody (David Duchovny)’s seventh cycle. In addition to the recent castings of ‘The Sopranos’ star Michael Imperioli, ‘The Hangover‘s’ Heather Graham and ‘24‘ star Mary Lynn Rajskub, young ‘Project X‘ star Oliver Cooper has joined the potentially final season in a recurring role, but what might he represent to the sex-addicted author?
‘Californication’ season 7 has a number of questions ahead of it, even as star after star signs on for the next cycle premiering in 2014. According to Deadline, the latest to join the series is Oliver Cooper, portraying a young writer named Levon who wants to emulate Hank Moody and ultimately insinuates himself into the author’s life.
In addition to Cooper, fellow ‘The Hangover Part 3‘ star Heather Graham will play a woman from Hank’s past whose arrival “upends his life,” while former ’24′ star Mary Lynn Rajskub will appear in a three-episode guest arc as a neurotic writer. Both stars join ‘The Sopranos’ vet Michael Imperioli, previously announced to take the role of TV producer Rick Rath, who plays a “key role” in Hank Moody’s latest business venture.
