David, 'Curb' making room for Fox
EmptyVivica A. Fox has joined the cast of Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" for the HBO comedy's upcoming sixth season.
Reps for HBO and Fox were mum on the character Fox will play on the show, but according to breakdown information, she will be a member of a black family that moves into the Davids' house after a major natural disaster.
The story line, seemingly a take on the events following Hurricane Katrina, is sure to explore interracial relations, something "Curb" has done with such episodes as "Krazee-Eyez Killa" and "The Carpool Lane."
The topic is in Hollywood's spotlight these days, following the racial outburst of Michael Richards, co-star of the hit comedy "Seinfeld," which David created with Jerry Seinfeld.
Fox recently starred in the Lifetime drama series "1-800-Missing" and did a multi-episode arc on the UPN comedy "All of Us," which since has migrated to the CW.
Fox is repped by Paradigm and manager Lita Richardson.
