Jennifer Garner (“13 Going on 30”, “Alias”) and James Marsden (“Sonic the Hedgehog”, “X-Men”) have joined the cast of the “Party Down” revival at Starz.
Tyrel Jackson Williams and Zoe Chao have also been newly added to the 6-episode sequel offering.
The original cast, Adam Scott, Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Megan Mullally, are returning for new episodes to a comedy that wrapped its second season in 2010.
According to Deadline, “Garner will play Evie, a successful producer of studio franchise movies, who, in the wake of a breakup, is reconsidering her life choices. A fledgling relationship with Henry Pollard (Scott) becomes a way for her to explore possible new directions.
Williams will play Sackson, a handsome, confident, driven, wannabe influencer/internet personality. He’s knowledgeable and savvy about his specific internet niche, but a bit lost in every other aspect of life.
Chao will play Lucy, a passionate, outspoken, free-thinking creative “food artist.” Lucy dreams of being a celebrity chef, but she’s stuck cranking out hors d’oeuvres at Party Down without the resources to do anything more ambitious.
Marsden will play Jack Botty, an actor who plays the lead in a popular superhero franchise. Jack’s looks match his charm, he enjoys his life, his fame and being the center of everyone’s attention.”
“Party Down” streams on Hulu in the U.S and Stan in Australia.
