Jennifer Garner Joins PARTY DOWN Revival at Starz

Jennifer Garner Joins PARTY DOWN Revival at Starz

Jennifer Garner ("Alias", "Dallas Buyers Club") has recently joined the cast of Starz's "Party Down" revival as series regular. James Marsden ("Westworld") will also appear as a recurring guest star. Other new additions to the cast include Zoƫ Chao ("The Afterparty") and Tyrel Jackson Williams ("Brockmire", "Thunder Force").

Starz ordered the six-episode revival in November. Original cast members Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen and Megan Mullally are set to return. Lizzy Caplan won't be part of the new season.

Like the original series, the new "Party Down" installment follows a Los Angeles catering team – a sextet of Hollywood wannabes (Scott, Lynch, Marino, Starr, Hansen, Mullally) stuck working for tips while hoping for their "big break". Each episode finds the hapless catering team working a new event – and inevitably getting tangled up with the colorful guests and their absurd lives.

Garner will play Evie, a successful producer of studio franchise movies, who, in the wake of a breakup, is reconsidering her life choices. A fledgling relationship with Henry Pollard (Scott) becomes a way for her to explore possible new directions.

Marsden will play Jack Botty, an actor who plays the lead in a popular superhero franchise. Jack's looks match his charm, he enjoys his life, his fame and being the center of everyone’s attention.

Williams will play Sackson, a handsome, confident, driven, wannabe influencer/internet personality. He's knowledgeable and savvy about his specific internet niche, but a bit lost in every other aspect of life.

Chao will play Lucy, a passionate, outspoken, free-thinking creative "food artist". Lucy dreams of being a celebrity chef, but she's stuck cranking out hors d'oeuvres at Party Down without the resources to do anything more ambitious.

Original series creators and executive producers Rob Thomas, John Enbom, Paul Rudd, and Dan Etheridge are executive producers on the revival, with Enbom serving as showrunner. Scott will also executive produce. Lionsgate Television will produce.
