After hosing out her yellow jumpsuit and explaining the concepts of “comas,” “martial arts,” and “revenge” to her child, Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill character would need to find something with a steady paycheck and flexible hours. A “fixer” for a ring of grifters and thieves seems like the perfect fit. Variety reports that Uma Thurman has booked a guest arc during the first season of Bravo’s upcoming drama My So Called Wife. The show, which stars Inbar Lavi as a con artist, will feature Thurman as the “lethal, articulate and mysterious Lenny Cohen.” Called in to manage Lavi’s con-artist ring, Cohen is an underworld problem-solver who will hopefully fight a mace-wielding teen or decapitate an old friend, or else you are just wasting Uma Thurman’s precious screen time.
