SNL Alum Fred Armisen Heads to HOUSE OF LIES

Digitalspy.com reports that SNL alum Fred Armisen is set to guest star on the upcoming third season of Showtime's HOUSE OF LIES.

The Portlandia star will portray 'Vince,' described as "an over-the-top business owner who sells meal replacement products." The actor will join a slate of upcoming guest stars on the dark comedy including 'Brothers & Sisters' star Balthazar Getty, Mekhi Phifer (ER), rapper TI, Daniel Stern (Home Alone), Griffin Dunne (After Hours) and Jenny Slate (The Lorax).

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 performance for season one and Golden Globe and SAG Award-nominated performance for season two 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 (Emmy winner 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, at least for now.

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. Produced by SHOWTIME, House of Lies is created and executive produced by Matthew Carnahan. Jessika Borsiczky, Stephen Hopkins, Don Cheadle and David Walpert also serve as executive producers.
