When the Party Down revival was announced, fans were saddened to know that Lizzy Caplan wouldn’t return to play aspiring comedic actor and Henry’s on-and-off girlfriend, Casey. But, now it’s been announced that there are some pretty exciting names joining the cast: Jennifer Garner, James Marsden, Zoë Chao, and Tyrel Jackson Williams.
James Marsden as Jack Botty
It was about time for Marsden to play a character with a silly name again. Jack Botty is “an actor who plays the lead in a popular superhero franchise” who “enjoys his life, his fame, and being the center of everyone’s attention.” It’s also said that Botty will be a key recurring character.
Garner, Mardsen, Chao and Williams will all join the show’s returning stars Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen, and Megan Mullally.
STARZ has yet to announce a premiere date for Party Down’s return.
