There is a new interview with Garret over at Spoiler TV. Hit the link for the whole thing. Snippet:
SpoilerTV: What has been your favorite episode so far? And who is the funniest person in the cast? I take that it must be very hard to keep a straight face sometimes.
Garret Dillahunt: Favorite episode? Geez…that’s a tough one. I like so many of them. I’ve really been enjoying this season so far. I think it might be our strongest yet. We’ve shot so many episodes now I can’t keep them all straight. I liked the spit-fight with the alpaca in season 1’s finale. I liked the vasectomy episode (is that possible?). This season, so far, I think the Halloween episode is very strong…Burt explores gay bars and culture. I liked the two-parter where the family busts Maw Maw out of the retirement home… See where this is going? I’m basically going to be listing every episode. I love this job and I love playing this character.
As far as the funniest person–I’m gonna wiggle out of that one and say Greg Garcia. He puts us in these predicaments, along with his EXCELLENT team of writers, where we have a real hard time indeed keeping a straight face. When Martha cracks, in particular, it’s really hard for me not to follow suit. She has a contagious laugh.
SpoilerTV: Would you like to see Burt become rich? What would rich Burt be like?
Garret Dillahunt: Burt is rich. I wouldn’t mind him getting a ’50s muscle car, though. I think Burt would like that.
