Marcy (PAMELA ADLON) makes a decision about Stu (STEPHEN TOBOLOWSKY) that is influenced by her man-hating spiritual guide, Ophelia Robbins (MAGGIE WHEELER).
Show Summary: CALIFORNICATION stars David Duchovny in his Golden Globe®-winning role as hedonistic novelist Hank Moody, who struggles to be a good father to his college-aged daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for her mother, his ex-girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). This season, noted actress Maggie Grace (Lost) has signed on for nine episodes as the infamous rock groupie Faith, who develops an unconventional relationship with Hank. International comedy star Tim Minchin takes on the role of Atticus Fetch in eight episodes, a mad-as-a-hatter rock star who will write the music for the Broadway production of A Crazy Little Thing Called Love, a film whose screenplay was adapted from Hank’s hit novel, God Hates Us All. Fetch enlists the ever-cynical Hank to collaborate on the project, which he calls “…a rock opera about love conquering all.” Grace is joined in one episode by her former Lost co-star Jorge Garcia as an old contact from Faith’s past, marking a reunion of sorts for the two actors. Notorious rocker Marilyn Manson will also make a guest appearance.
