On Monday's "action" packed episode of Big Love (which is getting really, really good in its second season), several familiar faces popped up. The perky social worker attempting to liberate the scheming Rhonda from her polygamous lifestyle, and impending child bridehood, was played by Margaret Easley. You may recall that I've mentioned her previously, as she is the chick from the ubiquitous DirectWay commercials. Jim Beaver, the much put upon Ellsworth from the tragically aborted Deadwood, is the owner of the videogame company who wants to sell out.
David Zayas has shown up several places. Zayas is Angel in Dexter regularly, but he's had guest spots recently on The Closer as the ballistics expert that even Tao thought was geeky, and in the fabulous new show Burn Notice as Weston's first "client." Speaking of Burn Notice, this is a great addition to USA's line up. Jeffrey Donovan was the lead in the American remake of Touching Evil, which USA inexplicably killed before it had a chance for a second season, and is fantastic in this. And cult god Bruce Campbell as his boozy, womanizing friend? Perfect!
On Monday's much funnier than usual ep of The Closer, Robert Picardo (ST: Voyager's Doctor, SG-1's Woolsy) played the funeral director with digestive issues.
