Edit Cast Series cast summary: Don Cheadle Marty Kaan 58 episodes, Kristen Bell Clyde Oberholt 58 episodes, Josh Lawson Doug Guggenheim 58 episodes, Donis Leonard Jr. At all costs—at any cost. For Cheadle—a diehard fan of Monty Python, and whose Marty Kaan is as cold and cut-throat as any character on screen—the idea that he could help shine a bright light on corporate culture in such a subversive way was too good to pass up. We're the kill! The tone of House of Lies might be darkly comic, but its premise is rooted in the very real, cut-throat world of American business—which has, in turn, influenced the culture at large.
I'd never really thought about what it was that management consulting was and what these guys did. I hadn't seen a project like it, and I definitely hadn't been asked to be a part of a project like it. So that was a challenge, but I also believe it was an important story to tell, especially in the way we tell it.
And I really loved the idea of playing with drama and mixing it with comedy. The idea that the script was great, and that Don Cheadle was the lead was just incredible. It feels like a comedy troupe: we all know who we are, and we know what beats to play and how to bounce things off of each other.
The world we are dealing with really requires people to be bastards, I think, in order to be successful. And my character is a bastard, but he's a different kind of bastard.
He's completely superior. He's a narcissist. He's arrogant. But I think his saving grace is that he genuinely wants to be liked. He refuses to accept reality. So I think the reason people who follow the show both hate him and love him at the same time is because they feel sorry for him. You really do feel sorry for the guy. In a lot of ways it's staggering he's made it as far as he has. As for the now-historic notion of filming in Cuba, which until recently was under a plus year trade embargo with the United States, everyone involved agrees it was worth the aggravation.
Sometimes, like in Cuba, you are filming in a place, and it's great because your reactions are pure and real and you're in a place where your mind's really blown. Of course it is. The murdered man was a missing person in a case back in , one that went very wrong and one that was incompetently investigated, giving rise to suspicion of corruption, directed at Rebus among others.
Rebus may now be suffering from emphysema and find himself out of breath as he climbs the two flights of stairs to his Arden Street flat. He may have stopped smoking, and almost given up alcohol. He may seem a typical pensioner as he walks his wee dog in the Meadows. Happily however, his memory is good, his mind still razor-sharp and his self-confidence undiminished.
Despite the distrust he invites, you expect him to prove invaluable, and he even has the energy to carry on a private parallel investigation into the case of a young man who had confessed to the murder of his girlfriend. And of course, he keeps his eye on Cafferty. As ever, Rankin contrives to marry intricate plotting to a narrative that never slackens its pace.
He has become a consummate craftsman, his novels put together like pieces of fine furniture.
