Here is a snippet:

But if talking about himself doesn’t come easy, the actor’s certainly comfortable discussing his character, whom he speaks of like an old friend. “I wish I were a little more like him,” he admits surprisingly enough, considering the former teen dad/pool cleaner is not the brightest. “He’s loyal and he takes things in stride. It’s about loving life and having a good time — Burt’s really good at that. I could learn from him.”

With the show renewed for a second season, Dillahunt will have plenty of time to pick up some tips — and he couldn’t be happier about it. “I like playing the fool. I’ve never understood actors who are like, ‘I don’t wanna do that. That makes me look like a loser!’ That’s when things are interesting — when you’re down.”

And if being on a hit show makes him too recognizable to play the chameleon and slip in and out of roles unnoticed? Dillahunt’s not worried: “That would be an exciting obstacle to overcome, right?”

New Raising Hope airs tonight at 9. Scroll down for the previews.
