Showtime’s “cancer dramedy” The Big C will air four hour-long episodes as a sort of final-season miniseries. A new addition to the cast, Isaac Mizrahi, will play himself, popping up in most of these episodes as a fashion mentor to Gabourey Sidibe’s character as she studies at a presumably fashion-focused design school. Hopefully he won’t “act” as mean as he often is while judging Project Runway.
