holtTara Holt has joined the final season of Showtime’s Californication in a recurring role. In it, Hank (David Duchovny) is joining the writers room as his never-released film Santa Monica Cop now becomes a TV series. He’s riled frequently by his boss, the show’s old-school executive producer Rick Rath (recurring Michael Imperioli). Holt, repped by Nancy Chaidez & Associates and Untitled, will play Melanie, Rath’s gorgeous assistant whose presence causes a commotion in the writers room.

It centers on Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and FBI agent Milton Bradley, who have very different worldviews but are teamed up to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, MI. Herriman, repped by APA, Art/Work Entertainment and Australia’s Lisa Mann, plays Battle Creek Detective Niblet, a nice guy who looks up to Detective Funkhauser (Kal Penn) and embraces his style.
