The Showtime comedy series House of Lies follows Marty Kaan (Don Cheadle) and his team of management consultants, who know how to play the corporate game better than anyone, by using every dirty trick in the book to woo powerful CEOs and close huge deals. In Season 2, the team will not only be learning to adjust to the new Galweather Stern, after how the company was left at the end of last season, but Marty and his co-worker, Jeannie Van Der Hooven (Kristen Bell), will be trying to figure out exactly what happened during their very drunken night together.
While at the Showtime portion of the TCA Press Tour, show star/executive producer Don Cheadle talked about what’s in store for viewers this season, whether Marty and Jeannie will ever know exactly what happened between them, what he learned from Season 1 that has helped him with Season 2, that he enjoys being so involved with the production, and how he’s found the experience of getting to explore a character over a longer period of time. He also talked about the challenges of juggling a film career with a TV show, what his hopes are for Iron Man 3, the fact that they’ll be doing re-shoots for the film next week in Manhattan Beach, the experience of working with director Shane Black, the surprise success of Flight, the status of the Miles Davis biopic, and what he’s currently working on with his production company. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
