Trivia

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 »

Duchovny's Back and He's Got the Goods!
18 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I can't remember when I laughed so steadily from start to finish of a new show. Family Guy? Perhaps. In Californication Showtime has one of its strongest hits . . . ever. The writing is bitingly crisp, intelligent and fresh. Duchovny's delivery has the timing of a master comic actor and his portrayal of Hank is winning. As with the very best of comedies, beneath the bubbly surface of Californication is a show that in a single episode reveals richly drawn characters of depth and purpose. Hank's lecherousness, womanizing, wry wit and in-your-face bluntness succeed only partially in covering up a complex (or perhaps merely complicated?) man who appears to be facing all of his mid life crisis's at once. Every note in this comic symphony was perfectly struck and I look forward to getting to know Hank - and the rest of his gang - better as the weeks go by. Bravo Showtime!
