Louis C.K. from the FX comedy "Louie" at the 2012 Comedy Awards… (Charles Sykes / Associated…)
Louis C.K., the star and creative force behind FX's "Louie," feels bad for his unlucky-in-love alter ego.
"I don't know what's going to happen to that guy," the actor-comedian said when asked during a Television Critics' Assn. session to promote "Louie" if the lead character would ever find a soul mate.
Said C.K., "I've had so much better luck than him. I'm starting to feel a little bad for him. Maybe in Season 4 I'll park him with a girlfriend, let him fail at having a relationship.:
FX announced that it had just renewed the series, which revolves around a hapless stand-up comic, for a fourth season.
C.K., speaking via satellite from Albany, N.Y, was low-key about the recent Emmy nominations for the series, including outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, outstanding writing and directing.
He said he felt competition was more appropriate for athletics than in creative circles, adding that he was more pleased that he had helped FX get "a whole bunch of nominations."
Despite the success of the series, C.K. is getting to embark on a major stand-up tour: "Stand-up is my blood. It keeps my blood moving."
