What was the criteria for selection of cast with such variety in the TV show Louie?
Louie CK's casts Amy Landecker as young Louie’s mom [S01E011, S04E11/12], after already using her a few episodes earlier to play adult Louie’s blind date [Sandra S01E09]. Is there any incoherence in this?
Another actor he places in different unexpected and unrelated roles is F. Murray Abraham who plays as a Swinger, Jonathan, in New Jersey/Airport [S02E13], and then as Uncle Excelsior in Dad [S03E08], and later on as his Dad in In the Woods: Part 2 [S04E12].
He also casts David Lynch but to play an acting part, instead of directing...
What is the inspiration?
