Kaitlin Olson Has Some Damn Good Advice For Parents of Boys

If Deandra “Sweet Dee” Reynolds ever had a child, she’d be a lot like DJ, the petty, needy, pill-smuggling, deeply insecure celebutot Kaitlin Olson plays on HBO’s Hacks. The new show is an ode to bad parenting, and entitlement, far sharper and funnier than you’d have reason to expect. And it’s the perfect companion piece to Olson’s portrayal of the “Aluminum Monster” on the bitingly hilarious modern classic It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Playing a third-rate grifter on that show, Olson has mastered the deft art of being both loathsomely conniving and defiantly pitiful, a former high school laughingstock whose own mother called her a mistake in her will.

Kaitlin Olson interview: ‘Hacks’

Jean Smart, Hannah Einbinder, and Kaitlin Olson Are Anything But ‘Hacks’

HBO Max’s Hacks stars Jean Smart as Deborah Vance, a resident Las Vegas stand-up comic. She still has the goods, and the out-of-town crowd loves her, but she’s not the marquee, buzzy name that she once was. Hannah Einbinder plays Ava, a once up-and-coming comedy writer whose finds herself cancelled after a questionable tweet goes viral. When their mutual agent throws them together, they discover they need each other, but will their pride allow their working relationship to thrive?

Meg Stalter, Kaitlin Olson, and More Join Upcoming Jean Smart Comedy on HBO Max

After redefining what a television show could do by fondling a giant blue Dr. Manhattan dildo on Watchmen, Jean Smart is working on an HBO Max comedy series in which she plays “a legendary Las Vegas comedian,” which just sounds decadently fun. In a press release on February 8, HBO Max announced that comedian Hannah Einbinder has been cast as Smart’s co-star, an “entitled, outcast 25-year-old” writer who becomes Smart’s mentee. Stage actor Carl Clemons-Hopkins has also signed on to play Smart’s “trusted longtime COO,” which we guess is more fun than playing a regular ol’ manager or agent. Though perhaps the most exciting thing about this press release is the rest of the supporting cast, which is an absolute murderer’s row of comedy performers: Kaitlin Olson, Paul W. Downs, and Quarry-laureate Meg Stalter will all round out the cast in recurring roles. Basically, the show sounds like Showgirls, but with Vegas comedians instead of Vegas exotic dancers. The show doesn’t have a name yet, but it comes out this spring, and we’re ready.
