Some episodes of Californication (2007) feature Daniel Benzali, an actor who was born and raised in Brazil, but has never worked in his native language. He was the 1st of a whole generation of Brazilian actors who prefer to perform roles in English. This group now includes the deeply acclaimed actor and singer Gustavo Goulart as its most powerful example. See more »

A solid new comedy series with top drawer performance from Duchovny
From its controversial opening scene to its excellent finale, the first episode of "Californication" sets the tone for the series. Stylishly directed by the always-reliable Stephen Hopkins, the pilot is thoroughly entertaining adult comedy. Watching the first episode reminded me a little of a modern Blake Edwards' production.
The cast are excellent, especially David Duchovny as the seedy Hank Moody, a man whose mid-life crisis is on display for all to see, from his Porsche to his constant bed-hopping.
The script is sharp and the whole show exudes quality.
