'Poker Face' Brings 'Star Trek' and 'Addams Family' Stars Along For Episode 8
Eight weeks into Poker Face, and we still can't get enough of the mystery-of-the-week show starring Natasha Lyonne. It's a refreshing spin on the procedural dramas we're used to seeing on network and cable television, where the cops always catch the criminal and always bring them to justice. Lyonne's character Charlie Cale has no plans to join law enforcement, and knows she won't always be on the right side of the law. It's simple: she hates lies, and she hates when innocent people are accused of wrongdoing.
And not to mention: the show is a joy to watch. Charlie travels the open road, stopping often to take on various jobs (and to keep her former boss' henchman from tracking her down). Along the way, she meets various characters, all famous actors in their own right. Some of them are victims, others are criminals, and a few help Charlie solve the murder she's discovered. The show takes a 'howcatchem' approach to displaying the crimes, showing the criminal committing the act first, then showing the viewers how Charlie comes to the conclusion. But even though viewers know who dies and how, there are still twists and turns that make Poker Face worth watching.
Episode 8's "The Orpheus Syndrome" finds Charlie working for a filmmaker whose past comes to light after one of his former colleagues is murdered. As Charlie helps him on his upcoming project, she has to delve into his past to find the truth behind his old friend's demise.
So, which guest stars appeared alongside Lyonne this week? Here's who showed up on Episode 8 of Poker Face.
