King played Katie, "a model who lives in Oscar and Felix's building"; while Baker played Oscar's assistant Sam, "who spends most of her work day on the phone apologizing to assorted high-and-mighty people who have been offended by Oscar's latest rant." Wendell Pierce and Lindsay Sloane also star. (Deadline.com)
