Lieutenant Assistent is a character in the television series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Behind the scenes[]

  • Lieutenant Assistent is portrayed by actor Amitai Marmorstein.
  • In the original casting breakdown Assistent's name was given as "Michael Assistent"[7]. Actor Amitai Marmorstein decided on the full fanon name "Michael Carlos Marvin Assistent"[8]. Before rediscovering the old casting name Marmorstein had crowdsourced the fans for his given name, and Marvin and Carlos had been fan favourites.[9]
  • Max Landis claims he had planned a Assistent/Dirk romance for future seasons.[10]
