TV DIVAGAL’s TV Show To Watch Tonight: House of LiesBy Delaina Dixon | January 8, 2012 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal gives you three reasons to watch the House of Lies, premiering tonight on Showtime.
1. Don Cheadle gets naked, a lot. The Oscar-nominated film star plays Marty Kaan, the lead man on a four-person management consulting team, who equates landing the deal to saying his last name out loud (try it and you’ll see what I mean!). Cheadle, yes the thoughtful actor from Hotel Rwanda, taps into another side of his acting and brings out a selfish, shameless, sexed up sharp dresser who is still pretty irresistible. Bonus: Cheadle is executive producer of the series, go Don!
2. Celebration of being yourself. Marty’s tween son, Roscoe, doesn’t conform to considered “social” gender norms. And his father is his biggest supporter. Nice to see that kind of unconditional love, especially from a single, African-American dad. Bonus: fans of the musical Grease are going to love the first two episodes of this series.
3. The clothes! How could we not notice Marty’s lightly textured grey suits highlighted by lavender and violet ties and pocket squares; or co-star Kristen Bell‘s sharp tweed overcoat? We’re determined to get to the bottom of their styles (so we can get them on our bottoms!), so stay tuned.
House of Lies premieres Sunday, Jan. 8 at 10 p.m. on Showtime.
