Callie Thorne on her new ‘Californication’ gig

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: What a job – going from Denis Leary’s bed to David Duchovny’s in just a couple of weeks’ time. Those are the breaks for Callie Thorne, whose first post-“Rescue Me” gig is on “Californication.”

Thorne is part of a “Californication” story in which Duchovny’s sex addicted writer, Hank Moody, gets involved with an actress who is playing his daughter in a movie, and with the actress’ mother. “We went right into a steamy scene – of course,” she notes, recalling her first day on “Californication” production. “To suddenly be intimate with David Duchovny, someone I’ve consistently been in awe of – it could have been disastrous, but instead we had an enormous amount of fun. The credit for that goes to David. Even though it’s a sexual thing going on, there’s such a magnitude of comedy, any nerves I was feeling went away.”

Thorne, best-known as Sheila, Leary’s crazy extra-marital paramour, on “Rescue Me,” adds, “It was also great for my psyche, the perfect timing after wrapping the series.”
