Showtime's House of Lies Gets A Female Lead
The female lead for the Showtime pilot House of Lies has been cast. Set to star opposite Don Cheadle is Dawn Olivieri (Heroes, True Blood).
According to Deadline, Olivieri will play the “crazy, pill-popping ex-wife and biggest professional competition” to Cheadle’s character Marty. House of Lies follows Marty, who is described as a “self loathing highly successful management consultant form a top-tier firm who is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want.” The series is a dark comedy, based on a book by Martin Kihn.
Olivieri’s previous credits include the role of Andie Star in an episode of The Vampire Diaries and the voice of Pepper Potts in The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. True Blood fans may remember her as Alcide’s sister Janice. She gave Sookie a proper make-under so she could blend in at the bar where Debbie’s engagement party was taking place. Olivieri’s also credited as playing Lydia/Maggie in Heroes.
