Eddie IzzardBritish comedian Eddie Izzard has booked a major recurring role on the third season of Showtime's dark comedy 'United States of Tara.'

According to Deadline Hollywood, Izzard will play a psychology professor who becomes fascinated with Tara (Emmy-winner Toni Collette) and her Dissociative Identity Disorder. At first he is skeptic about Tara's condition, but later becomes a believer.

Izzard starred on the FX series 'The Riches' with Minnie Driver for two seasons. The comedian has had numerous stand-up specials, including the recent 'Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story,' and appeared in movies such as 'Across the Universe' and 'Ocean's Thirteen.'

'United States of Tara' tells the story of Collette's Tara and family as they struggle with her multiple personalities. The Showtime series begins production on season 3 in September for a 2011 premiere.
