Emily's Reasons Why Not (2006– )
Graham, whose last foray into TV was the ill-fated ABC sitcom "Emily's Reasons Why Not," is joining Season 7 of Showtime comedy "Californication" for a season-long arc, Deadline reports. She will play a woman from Hank's (David Duchovny) past whose arrival disturbs his life.
Also joining the show for a three-episode arc in Season 7 is "24" alum Mary Lynn Rajskub. She'll be portraying a neurotic writer.
This bit of casting news comes just a few days after word that "Sopranos" alum Michael Imperioli has joined the show in a major recurring role, as well. He'll be playing Rick Rath, a successful old-school television producer who will play a key role in Hank's latest venture.
The 12-episode season will go into production at the end of April, eyeing a premiere in 2014.
The actress will replace Paula Marshall in new comedy Little in Common, according to TV Guide magazine.
Marshall appeared in the pilot episode of the show, which also stars funnymen Rob Corddry and Kevin Hart and actress Gabrielle Union.
Graham last appeared on TV in 2006, when she starred in the short-lived Emily's Reasons Why Not.

We haven’t seen much of Caleb thus far, but we do know he smokes cigars,
