Happy! Adds Debi Mazar And Michael Maize

by Erik Amaya

 

Ahead of its December debut, Syfy’s Happy! adds two actors to its expanded cast.

Deadline reports that Batman Forever‘s Debi Mazar and Gotham‘s Michael Maize will recur on the series based on the comic book by Grant Morrison and Darrick Robertson. Mazar will play Isabella Scaramucci, a “dripping-in-Dolce mother” with a mind for vengeance. Maize will play an arms dealer named Le Dic.

Happy! stars Wet Hot American Summer‘s Christopher Meloni as Nick Sax, a carousing cop turned hit-man whose life gets a shot of optimism from self-proclaimed imaginary friend named Happy. He presents himself as a stuffed winged horse and tells Nick that he is the only man who can save his real best friend, a little girl in trouble. Mystery Science Theater 3000‘s Patton Oswalt lends his voice to Happy.

Morrison co-wrote the pilot episode with Crank co-director Brian Taylor, who also directs. It debuts December 6th on Syfy.
