Mary McCormack and Alicia Witt have both signed on for guest starring roles in the upcoming fourth season of Showtime’s House of Lies. According to the official announcement, McCormack will play “a tough, highly successful white knight investor who Marty (Don Cheadle) recruits to help save Kaan & Associates.” Witt’s set to play “a brilliant engineer who comes to Marty’s rescue when he’s in a bind.”

Other guest stars confirmed for season four include Valorie Curry, Demetri Martin, and Larenz Tate.

Season four is currently shooting and will premiere on January 11, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT.

McCormack’s credits include In Plain Sight, Welcome to the Family, The Compound, and Scandal. Witt’s resume includes Dune, Justified, The Sopranos, The Mentalist, Two and a Half Men, Friday Night Lights, and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

The Plot:

House of Lies stars Cheadle in his three-time Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning performance. Kristen Bell plays his razor-sharp partner, along with Emmy winner Ben Schwartz; Josh Lawson; Emmy winner Glynn Turman; and Donis Leonard Jr. We last left a despondent Marty alone in the desert after a cataclysmic double-cross by Jeannie (Bell) and a visit by the Feds. This season, Marty’s brief stint in white collar prison leaves Jeannie to pick up the pieces of the now tainted Kaan & Associates with Clyde (Schwartz) and Doug (Lawson). Client flight has decimated the bottom line, but Marty is now a man with a singular focus: winning, at any and all cost.
