kevin bacon 'Bored to Death' preview: Kevin Bacon is a method actor

Kevin Bacon barely plays anyone but himself on television — which might be a problem, if he were anyone but Kevin Bacon.

The actor stops by “Bored to Death” on Oct. 24, playing a parody of himself who’s interested in adapting “Super Ray” to the big screen. To nail down the role, he’ll first need to immerse himself in Ray’s (Zach Galifianakis) musk.

Can we also take a moment to acknowledge how much we’ve been loving Mary Kay Place as new Edition publisher Kathryn Joiner? She returns this week, and we’d like to suggest that HBO executives plot out their programming calendar so that there’s always a series for the “Big Love” actress to appear on while her day job is on hiatus.
