Showtime’s House of Lies, which returns this Sunday for a third season, offers a comedic look at one of our era’s great scourges. No, not gluten; management consulting! Don Cheadle and Kristen Bell star as Marty Kahn and Jeannie van der Hooven, a flirtatious pair of down-sizers-for-hire who are too skilled at backstabbing to ever really pair up romantically. To celebrate the show’s return, VanityFair.com asked Bell, to play journalist for a day and interview Cheadle.
Kristen Bell: Don, you’ve played Marty Kahn on Showtime’s House of Lies for three years now. What’s your favorite thing about working with me?
Don Cheadle: Did they write this for you? Oh, you must have written this yourself. My favorite thing about working with you is that when I look closely in your eyes—you know how you get emotional and your eyes mist up when we’re doing dramatic scenes? When that happens, I can see myself reflected in your eyes really, really well.
Kristen Bell loves sloths. Like, she really, really loves sloths. And considering the fact that Ellen DeGeneres is well aware of that love, it should not come as a shock to learn that “The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s” Slothy the Snowman mascot was actually Bell in disguise.
Missed the Slothy the Snowman episode? Watch the mascot in action below, and laugh that much harder knowing that it was actually Bell trying to hustle across the street.
Showtime has a special treat for you. “House of Lies Live” is an improvisational comedy special featuring Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz and Josh Lawson.
The special features the actors taking suggestions with the audience and creating comedic sketches on the fly. In the preview released by Showtime, men can get pregnant with kittens, which shows about how logical things are going to be.
“House of Lies Live” will premiere online, a Showtime first, on Monday, Dec. 30. It will then air on Showtime at 10 p.m. ET Dec. 31.
