If the creators of the Showtime pilot "Insatiable" want to keep describing the tone of their series as "Twin Peaks"-esque, casting Lara Flynn Boyle seems like a good move.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyle is close to joining the cast of the "Insatiable" pilot, along with Andie MacDowell and Andrea Martin.
"Insatiable" is said to be a single-camera comedy about a small town in which every resident has some sort of weird addiction.
Of Boyle ("The Practice"), the industry trade paper says her role is "a local news personality married to a doctor who gets a sexual rush from stealing things." From that phrasing, we aren't sure if Boyle's character is the easily aroused kleptomaniac or if her husband is, but we're still intrigued.
MacDowell ("Groundhog Day") would play the sister of Boyle's character, the superficially glamorous wife of a millionaire. The character also harbors an addiction to online shopping.
Martin's character would be an accountant and single mom with a gambling addition.
Peter Facinelli and Beth Riesgraf were previously cast.
Recent credits for Boyle include arcs on "Huff" and "Las Vegas," while you may have heard MacDowell's voice in the animated feature "Barnyard." Martin will next be seen in "Black Christmas," a remake of the 1974 slasher classic that marked one of her first big screen roles.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
