Justin Kirk is returning to HBO.

The Angels in America star has joined the cast of the premium cabler’s Sarah Silverman comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The untitled pilot is described as a comedic look at a pathologically honest woman (Silverman) having a modern midlife crisis. Silverman stars as Jude, an abrasively honest tomboy described as a 21st century woman who works as a video game designer. Kirk will play Stacy, Jude’s paranoid, charismatic and occasionally antagonistic boss at the video game company. 

Smash’s Jack Davenport, Kerri Kennedy and Mark Cohen co-star in the comedy written by Lucy Prebble (Secret Diary of a Call Girl). Prebble, Silverman, Ash Atalla, Amy Zvi and Dan Hine exec produce.

For Kirk, repped by UTA, Management 360 and attorney PJ Shapiro, the casting brings the Golden Globe-nominated Weeds alum back to HBO after he toplined its Emmy-winning miniseries Angels in America, for which he also garnered an Emmy nom.

His credits include Nobody Walks, Mr. Morgan’s Last Love and the upcoming Walter.

The new (“March 13″) issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine has a “News+Notes” sidebar article that includes mention of what Sarah auctioned at this year’s Night of Too Many Stars benefit for autism. Giving away (in advance of tomorrow night’s Comedy Central broadcast of the event that was taped live February 28 at the Beacon Theater in New York) that Sarah’s services treating “you like her parents” were won for a $15,000 bid, the article reports:

Sarah Silverman directed a rant intended for her mother at the two winners: “Mom, you never supported me. When I told you I wanted my face on money, you rolled your eyes. It made me feel like shit.”
