Jonathan Ames

Looks like at least one company in America is on a hiring spree. Playboy has just hired Jonathan Ames — writer, Bored to Death creator, and Nerve buddy — as a columnist for the magazine. Also signed were comedian Lisa Lampanelli and writer Nick Tosches, bringing some much-needed excitement to the staid publication. And as industry blog Fishbowl NY reported, the fun is already on its way:

Lampanelli’s “Women” column and Tosches’ “Men” column can be found in the March issue of Playboy, which just hit newsstands. Ames’ first column will be featured in the May issue.

We might have to go out and snag ourselves one of those copies once it hits newsstands.
