Sarah Silverman Joins ‘Masters of Sex’

Masters of Sex is adding an Emmy-winning comedian to its cast for Season 2.

Sarah Silverman is joining Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan on the Showtime drama in the recurring guest role of Helen. No word on how many episodes she’ll appear in, or what, exactly, the nature of her role happens to be. But Season 2 is already among the most anticipated television events of the summer, ever since the premiere was bumped up from the fall to fill the scheduling hole left by Dexter.

Silverman will next be seen starring in Seth MacFarlane’s soon-to-be released feature A Million Ways to Die in the West. She also just wrapped production on her lead role in the drama film I Smile Back.

Production on Masters of Sex Season 2 is currently underway in Los Angeles. The new season premieres Sunday, July 13th at 10:00 PM ET/PT after Ray Donovan.
