Californication Season 6 Gets Grumpy Gay Boss
Things are about to get a little grumpy, and a little gay, on Californication when it returns next year for its sixth season with a new recurring character. Though he is primarily known for his role as Pintel in the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films, Lee Arenberg has been most recently seen as the recurring character of Leroy on ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Of course, everyone on Once has a fairytale past, and Leroy’s saw him as the romantically troubled dwarf Grumpy. You all remember Grumpy, the dwarf from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (though in this version there were eight, but poor Stealthy didn’t live up to his name), right?
Arenberg announced on his Twitter account he had been cast in the recently picked up sixth season of Californication, telling one of his followers the show is going to be “undoubtedly wild.” He will recur as Charlie’s (Evan Handler) gay boss at the talent agency, which just sounds like a can of worms waiting to be opened. For some reason, I have zero trouble picturing Arenberg working at a talent agency. It’s just an image that works for me, especially if he’s one of those constantly angry bosses who yells about the smallest of grievances.
I want to take a second to put some of my worry on your shoulders. I like Californication, and so does Showtime, but I’m also extremely paranoid when it comes to the quality of a long running series. At best a show can make it to five seasons without loosing too much of its original appeal, but once you get to six or more seasons, you start to wear thin. It’s a natural thing. Scripted shows are not buitl to last forever, which is why I would hope Californication comes to an end soon. I just hate seeing a show become something dreadful, much like with what has happened to Dexter, another Showtime favorite. So while I in no way dislike Californication, I do not want to see it collapse in on itself from running too long. I hope there’s an end in sight.
