What’s better than a scandal? A sex scandal! When the studly star of a TV show about a Los Angeles novelist who can’t keep it in his pants revealed he suffered from the same sex addiction as his character, I had to wonder: Am I still going to enjoy watching David Duchovny hump his was through “Californication?” Would the show that once had his Golden Globe winning character, Hank Moody, getting punched in the face as he orgasms still be willing to go there, in light of his highly publicized sexual addiction problem? Within the first minutes of last night’s season premiere, I had my answer. In the opening sequence, Moody wakes up and whispers to his girlfriend, “I’ve got a godlike erection right now, and it seems a shame to waste it.” Touché, Hank! In this case of art imitating life, the on-screen sex has turned truly compelling. And here’s the kicker. Now, Moody’s trying to be monogamous. Oh, the irony. Maybe “Californication” fans like me are the ones who need the intimacy fix? It’s a good thing they’re not writing off Duchovny or Hank Moody yet. How else would the rest of us get off vicariously?

From guyliner to his groovy anti-establishment attitude, who is this one man British invasion named Russell Brand?
