Mary Steenburgen Cast in BORED TO DEATH

Mary Steenburgen

HBO’s comedy BORED TO DEATH is now a family affair in the household of Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, according to Yahoo! News.

Danson has reported that his wife (Steenburgen) is joining the cast for the new season of the HBO comedy due to air in the fall.

Steenburgen will play the vocal coach whom Danson’s character, George Christopher, hires after he decides to sing at a charity fundraiser where “Man of La Mancha” is being performed. The actor was also quick to note that neither he nor his character can sing. The couple plans a move to New York City, where the show is filmed, for several months.

Meanwhile Danson is also publicizing his book, “Oceana,” out March 15, about the dangers facing the world’s oceans. The actor reports that his Bored to Death co-stars Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis are “incredibly supportive” of the cause, which he has been involved in since 1987.
