'Bored to Death' star's dog gets cameo on show

Jason Schwartzman's dog had the face for TV - just not the back for it.

Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK —

Jason Schwartzman's dog had the face for TV - just not the back for it.

Schwartzman, 30, stars in HBO's offbeat detective comedy "Bored to Death," and show creator Jonathan Ames says he wanted to have Schwartzman's French bulldog, Arrow, in the show. Ames liked Arrow because of his "incredibly beautiful, crushed, tormented face."

Unfortunately Arrow has a bad back and was not up to the rigors of acting. So they cast another dog in his place.

Arrow did have a cameo in the show, though.

"Bored to Death" also stars Ted Danson and Zach (Gal-if-fin-NAK-ihs) Galifianakis.
