Cynthia Nixon, Wanda Sykes, more join ‘Alpha House’ cast
The show follows four Republican senators-turned-housemates, Gil John Biggs (John Goodman), Robert Bettencourt (Clark Johnson), Louis Laffer (Matt Malloy) and, Andy Guzman (Mark Consuelos) through re-election battles, looming indictments, parties and housemate drama.
Nixon will play Senator Carly Armiston, the formidable, confident, Democratic senator from New York. Sedaris will play Louise Laffer, the sweet, concerned wife of Senator Louis Laffer. Sykes will play Senator Rosalyn DuPeche, a strong-willed, funny Democrat who just happens to be a neighbour of the male senators, while White will play the tough, determined, yet charming southern wife to Goodman’s character Gil John Biggs.
Creator, Garry Trudeau, said: “We’re lucky enough to have four of the most talented performers around joining the show.”
Alpha House is one of five pilots selected to become a full series, and will air exclusively on Prime Instant Video later this year.
