MUSIC ICON RZA TO GUEST STAR ON 5th SEASON OF SHOWTIME'S "CALIFORNICATION"

Grammy(R)- winning music producer to star as all-powerful hip hop mogul in multiple episodes

LOS ANGELES, CA - (April 25, 2011) - Music icon, producer, actor and director RZA (American Gangster, Derailed) has signed on for the 5th season of the hit SHOWTIME comedy series CALIFORNICATION. RZA will guest star in multiple episodes as an extreme-living, mega-rich hip hop mogul who hires Hank (series star and executive producer David Duchovny) to write a screenplay for his hot new film. Production on the 5th season begins this May.

CALIFORNICATION stars Duchovny in his Golden Globe(R)-winning role as hedonistic novelist Hank Moody who struggles to raise his teenage daughter Becca (Madeleine Martin), while still carrying a torch for his ex-girlfriend Karen (Natascha McElhone). The new season will answer questions from last month's cliff-hanging season finale, including whether Hank, Karen and Becca will finally be able to live as a family, if Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy's (Pamela Adlon) new baby will help reunite the now-divorced couple and, especially, to where, exactly, Hank was driving off into the sunset.

This year, RZA made his directorial debut with The Man with the Iron Fists, which he co-wrote with Eli Roth and will star as "The Blacksmith." The film stars Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu, Jamie Chung, Daniel Wu and Cung Le. Eli Roth and Strike Entertainment produced. Quentin Tarantino executive produced and is presenting the film and Universal will distribute. RZA was seen in Miguel Sapochnik's Repo Me starring Forrest Whitaker and Jude Law; Paul Haggis' film The Next Three Days starring Russell Crowe; and Todd Phillip's Due Date starring Robert Downey Jr. As an actor, some of RZA's credits include work with Judd Apatow in Funny People; Ridley Scott in American Gangster; Buddy Giovinazzo's Life is Hot in Crack Town; and Mikael H�fstr�m in Derailed. RZA is a GRAMMY(R) Award-winning music producer, BAFTA-nominated film composer, recording artist and actor. He is one of the most prominent figures in hip hop music and the creator/producer of the Wu-Tang Clan. RZA has an extremely distinguished body of work in music, scoring for filmmakers such as Ridley Scott, Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino. RZA scored the Emmy(R)-nominated American adaptation of the Japanese anime Afro Samurai, executive produced by and starring Samuel L. Jackson. He is represented by ICM and Joe Carlone at King, Holmes, Paterno & Berliner.
