Alan Richman Will Appear on Treme

Four years after he wrote a post-Katrina appraisal of New Orleans restaurants that angered the city's inhabitants almost as much as the entire Bush administration, Alan Richman is returning to the scene of his crime, sort of.

In an interview with Grub Street, the GQ critic mentioned that he's making a cameo on Treme. He'll appear as himself, though the plotline will be fictional, much like it was when Tom Colicchio, David Chang, Wylie Dufresne, and Eric Ripert appeared on the show last May. Sadly, there's no indication that Anthony Bourdain will be making a cameo in the same episode.
