Last week, we reported that the cast of Showtime's House of Lies will come together for a live improv special, before Season 3 kicks off on Sunday, January 12. The full half-hour special is now available to watch right here, featuring series regulars Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson performing long-form improv, alongside Season 3 guest stars Lauren Lapkus, Ryan Gaul and Eugene Cordero. Fans can also watch an uncensored version of the special December 31 at 10 PM ET on Showtime.
House of Lies is the edgy, provocative hit Showtime comedy series starring Don Cheadle (Iron Man 3) in his twice Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role as elite consultant Marty Kaan, a man with a single-minded pursuit: power. This quest is eternally complicated at work by his relationships with his "Pod" of co-workers: sexy, whip-smart co-conspirator Jeannie (Kristen Bell) and underlings Clyde (Ben Schwartz) and Doug (Josh Lawson). At home, he's forced to juggle unwanted advice from his psychoanalyst father Jeremiah (Emmy winner Glynn Turman), drama from his demented ex-wife Monica (Dawn Olivieri), all while being a loving father to his gender-fluid teenage son Roscoe (Donis Leonard Jr.). We start Season 3 as the wreckage from Marty's decision to launch his own firm has spilled onto the Pod - the almighty quartet is disbanded. But while Marty is preoccupied with hustling up new clients, his former mentee Jeannie is channeling her inner Kaan and making big moves in his absence. With everything now turned upside-down, it's anyone's game and anyone's guess as to who will come out on top - at work and at play. Season three guest stars include Grammy Award winner T.I. (American Gangster, Identity Thief), Mekhi Phifer (Lie to Me, ER), Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings, Scrubs) and Daniel Stern (Home Alone, The Wonder Years). Previous guest stars Griffin Dunne ("The Rainmaker"), Bess Armstrong ("Julianne") and Jenny Slate ("Sarah") will also return this season.
