'Six Feet' Adds Guest Stars
(Friday, January 09 09:50 AM)

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - Already one of television's most star-laden shows, HBO's "Six Feet Under" is set to welcome an assortment of new and returning guest stars for its upcoming fourth season. Currently in production in Los Angeles, the Emmy-winning hit will return to HBO this summer.
As was announced earlier, Mena Suvari will reunite with "American Beauty" screenwriter (and "Six Feet Under" creator) Alan Ball for a six-episode story arc. She'll also be joined by Ellen DeGeneres and Veronica Cartwright.

"Alien" co-star Cartwright is a regular television guest star, picking up three Emmy nominations for work on "The X-Files" and "ER." Her television career actually stretches all the way back to stints on "Leave it to Beaver" and "Daniel Boone," though she's been seen more recently in the features "Just Married" and "Scary Movie 2."


DeGeneres is still basking in the double-glow of the successful launch of her syndicated talk show and the international box office glory of her voice work in "Finding Nemo." The actress and comedian has done stand-up specials for HBO and also executive produced and co-starred in "If These Walls Could Talk 2."
In addition to the fresh faces of Suvari, Cartwright and DeGeneres, this season will feature the return of characters played by Kathy Bates, Joanna Cassidy, Patricia Clarkson, Ben Foster, Justina Muchado, Rainn Wilson and Justin Theroux.

HBO promises that still more guest stars for the 12-episode season are yet to be announced.

It's from TV Guide's Ask Matt column:
Question:
Great to have you back: missed your comments, love to read you. Was just wondering if you've heard anything on when the new season of Six Feet Under will start. I really love this show and can't wait to start watching it again. Thanks and keep up the good work. — Pam
Matt:
The next HBO dramas on the roster will be The Sopranos (starting March 7) and the Western Deadwood around the same time. Doing the math, new episodes of Six Feet Under won't appear until early summer. And a third season of The Wire is scheduled for late summer. Which really gives us something to look forward to.

From USA Today
When Six Feet Under returns to HBO on June 6, the Fisher clan will be thrown into "life-altering experiences and sexual experimentation," promises executive producer Alan Poul. "Our intention is to return to the lighter, unpredictable tone of the first two seasons."

Can't find the source, but Eric Balfour(Gabe) & Rainn Wilson will also be returning & there is a chance that Lisa returns but along the lines of Nate Sr. And Keith has a new job as personal security to a pint sized diva(Michelle Tractenberg), that's how Ellen comes into play. She is a guest on her real life talk show.

Fourth Season of “Six Feet Under” Starts Filming December 1, Details Revealed
Written 11-15-2003 by ChrisFaile

The fourth season of HBO’s critically-acclaimed series “Six Feet Under” will begin filming December 1 in Los Angeles, FilmJerk.com sources have learned. Picking up shortly after the previous season’s finale, the initial episode, entitled “Falling Into Place,” will see the introduction of the family of Nate’s late wife, with several of them recurring characters.

At the end of last season, Nate Fisher (played by Peter Krause) received the phone call he'd been dreading for three episodes: The police had found Lisa's body, which was only identifiable by her dental records. In a state of utter despair, he goes to a local dive bar and there goads a patron into beating him into a bloody mess; later, in his car, he envisions his dead father and Lisa urging him to commit suicide by driving himself off the road into a canyon. The episode closed with Nate being invited into ex-girlfriend Brenda’s home. In the same episode, Federico Diaz (Freddy Rodriguez) also found himself indulging in some marital infidelity. According to our sources, each of these happenings are dealt with in the first episode.

Presumably in a little better state by the time of the season premiere, viewers meet Barb Woodsworth, the sister Lisa was going to see in Santa Cruz when she disappeared. Described as “grounded, sensible and sweet,” she is married to a “Jeff Daniels-type” husband named Hoyt Woodsworth and has three children.

While Barb seems to be a recurring character, Lisa’s two parents look to be only on for one episode. Peg Kimmel, Lisa’s mother, is described as “way too thin” and understandably distraught over her daughter’s death, she digs in her heels with Nate over certain things that she expects. Ed Kimmel, he husband, is described only as a “defeated man.” Michaela, Barb’s oldest daughter, also forms a special bond with Michael C. Hall’s David and looks to recur on the series.

Also in the premiere, Federico visits a priest for a confession, most likely to ask forgiveness for his indiscretion. Part of the episode will also go back to 1972 as well.

The episode is written by Craig Wright and will be directed by Michael Cuesta, who each have several episodes of the series under their belts already. The fourth season of the series is expected to premiere in June 2004.

The Scorecard
Executive Producers: Alan Ball, Robert Greenblatt, David Janollari and Alan Poul
Director: Michael Cuesta
Writer: Craig Wright
Casting Directors: Junie Lowry Johnson and Libby Goldstein
Start Date: December 1, 2003
Location: Los Angeles
Production Company

From Filmjerk:Episode 2 is “In Case of Rapture." We meet Claire’s new friends Edie and Annette. Keith gets a crappy security job. Someone gets a shipment of dildos and blow up dolls. And the Sheedy kids lose a parent.

"Episode 403 is called “Parallel Play." We get a new character in Celeste, a rock singer, and our opening death is a young girl who is laughing with her friends and falls off her bed and breaks her neck."

From E! online Kristin's latest chat:
Anything on HBO: Sex and the City, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under?
Oh, just a little breaking casting news: Michelle Trachtenberg (you know, Buffy's "sis") and Mr. Jennie Garth, Peter Facinelli of Fastlane, just closed deals to guest star in the upcoming fourth season of Six Feet Under. As you know, scripts can change, but producers are planning to use Facinelli as an art student who slides his easel next to Claire (Lauren Ambrose). And Trachtenberg plays a young, diva-ish singer for whom Keith (Michael St. Patrick) provides private security. This comes after plans for Drew Barrymore, then Cameron Diaz, fell through (as I reported a while back).

Justin Theroux IS going to be back as Joe, for about 8 episodes.

Six Feet Under: In “Can I Come Up Now," we meet George’s son Kyle. Nate sees a psychic about Lisa. And our corpse du jour is a man struck by lightning.

Here's info on the fifth episode: The fifth episode of the upcoming new season is called “That’s My Dog” and will be a Alan Poul/Scott Buck directorial/writing pairing, where a new lead character will join the mix. Described as a well-built and handsome young man, Jake’s charming manner conceals a deeply sadistic and unbalanced nature. It looks like this week’s opening death involves a 40ish couple having some fun in a hot tub. Also, Nate attends a church’s bereavement support group; everyone there is in their 60s except for Nate, resulting in him feeling terrifically out of place.

Minor casting news:
From Zap2it.com:
In other cable news, James Waterston will appear in multiple episodes of HBO's "Six Feet Under." The son of "Law & Order" star Sam, Waterston's credits include the HBO telefilm "Live From Baghdad" as well as guest appearance on "ER" and "Law & Order." Rumor has it he'll play George Sibley's son.


And from Liz Smith's Column:
I don't even know who this person is, but when we're asking "who?"
next season this may come in handy. From Liz Smith's column:

http://tinyurl.com/2xcl9

MY "COUSIN" Lois Smith, one of the founders of the PMK public
relations operation, drops a line to brag on her grandchild, Fanny
Grace Lubensky, age 1. Lois is puzzled why Fanny hasn't already
become a movie star.

Fanny, unfazed by a late start, has been taken to L.A. by her
mother, actress Brooke Smith. Brooke just signed for a recurring
role on the coming season of HBO's hit "Six Feet Under." I always
describe Brooke as the girl-kept-down-in-the-well in "The Silence of
the Lambs." From knowing Hannibal Lecter in that film, she went on
to play the distinguished Anthony Hopkins' love interest in "Bad
Company," which also starred Chris Rock.
