Raising Hope season preview & summer movie #3 revealed

A couple of quick updates.

The Daily Beast has a nice three-page interview with Alan Cumming, Garret’s co-star in the mystery movie set in the 1970s, filmed over the summer. On page three, he talks about being harassed by Cloris Leachman and mentions this:

The film I did this summer was with Garret Dillahunt. We played boyfriends in [Famlee] and we had such a laugh.

Here is the synopsis, from Cumming’s site:

Famlee was written and directed by Travis Fine and is the story of a gay couple in the 1970s and their struggle to keep custody of a down syndrome child who they have become fathers to.

And here is another bit from a casting call posted at FamleeMovieCasting.com:

In 1975 Marco is the neglected son of a junkie mother. When the mother is arrested, charged and incarcerated, Marco is befriended and taken in by his neighbor, a flamboyant female impersonator who gets Marco the care and education that he has been missing. The film is a fictional story of a real account. Marco’s speech needs to be good enough to be understood by strangers, which doesn’t always work in his favor, due to the potty mouth he has developed while living with his mother.

Isaac Levya plays the son and Frances Fisher is also in the film. She mentioned it on Twitter back in June.

Elsewhere, Fox Broadcasting has uploaded a short interview with Garret and Martha on YouTube (after the teaser), in which they give away a few details about season two:

And Fox News has a short interview with Lucas Neff and Shannon Woodward.

The show returns in 19 days – Tuesday, September 20 at 9:30/8:30c.
