Izzard Returns to TV

After The Riches was cancelled two years ago I didn’t think we’d get to see Eddie Izzard as part of an American TV series again. Well, I was wrong.

Yesterday it was announced that Izzard will be joining the next season of Showtimes wonderful United States of Tara which stars Toni Collette as a wife and mother with split personalities. Tara is possibly the best of the variety of half hour US cable comedies and Izzard will fit in well among the slightly oddball plots and characters.

If you needed another reason to watch Tara, it co-stars Brie Larson (aka Envy Adams) as the daughter of Collette’s dysfunctional character.
