Eric Mabius has been added to the cast of Showtime's upcoming drama series The L Word (formerly Earthlings). Mabius joins Mia Kirshner, Jennifer Beals, Laurel Holloman, and Pam Grier on the show about the lives and loves of a group of West Hollywood, Calif., women, most of them lesbians. He is replacing Scott Bairstow in the series, set to premiere in January.
The L Word centers on a gifted young writer (Kirshner), who moves from Chicago to Los Angeles to live with her boyfriend (Mabius). Getting to know their next-door neighbors, a gay couple (Beals, Holloman) and their friends, the writer starts to question her sexuality. Mabius's credits include the features Welcome to the Dollhouse, I Shot Andy Warhol, and Gregg Araki's Splendor. He will next be seen in the indie The Job, recently picked up by Lions Gate Entertainment, opposite William Forsythe, Brad Renfro, and Daryl Hannah.
