Orlando Jones to Star in David Foster Wallace–Inspired Sitcom?


Former 7UP pitchman Orlando Jones has landed a role on the Fox sitcom Tax Man, set in an IRS district office in Fresno, California. Weirdly, David Foster Wallace’s posthumous novel The Pale King is also set in an IRS district office! Traditionally, the IRS and its machinations haven’t inspired much cultural product, but looks like DFW’s considerable influence is changing all that. So should we prepare ourselves for IRS vampires?
