Mekhi Phifer has joined the cast of Showtime’s Don Cheadle dramedy series House Of Lies, for its upcoming 3rd season.

Phifer will play a character named Dre, who Deadline describes as "a successful business mogul and clothing company founder who hires Marty (Don Cheadle) to help expand his empire."

Fans of the series will recall that, last season, Larenz Tate and Nia Long booked recurring roles on House Of Lies, which is based on the book, House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Tell You the Time by Martin Kihn

Cheadle stars as Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant who will use any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information that they want.

Season 3 of House Of Lies premieres January 12. 

I've got some catching up to do on this one...
