On the Masters of Sex Season 4 premiere episode ‘Freefall’, times are a-changing. It’s a new decade (the 1960s) and sex experts Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) are trying to figure out how to keep their careers intact while their personal lives “crash down around them.” Masters is in court again and required to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. There he meets the AA meeting chairperson, Louise Bell.
Louise is portrayed by Niecy Nash. She’s known for her comedic roles on Scream Queens (Denise Hemphill), The Soul Man (Lolli Ballentine), Getting On (Didi Ortley), The Mindy Project (Dr. Jean Fishman), and Reno 911! (Deputy Raineesha Williams), among others. This isn’t Nash’s first dramatic role. She starred in the 2014 film Selma as Jesse Jackson’s wife Richie Jean Jackson. Masters of Sex airs Sundays at 10pm on Showtime.
