The funny woman, who received an Emmy nomination for her Comedy Central show “The Sarah Silverman Program,” has just signed on for a recurring role in Showtime's "Masters of Sex." Filming of the second season of the series, which stars Michael Sheen as pioneering sex researcher William Masters, is currently underway. The premiere for Season 2 is expected to air on July 13.

Silverman will have a recurring guest-star role as Helen, but no other details about her character are available as of yet. She joins "American Horror Story" star Danny Huston, who has been booked in the recurring role of Dr. Douglas Greathouse, the privileged head of a hospital's Obstetrics Department.
