Raising Hope

New interview & Twelve Years a Slave update

Iconic Interview has a new interview with Garret. In it, he talks about everything from Deadwood and The Sarah Connor Chronicles to Any Day Now and Twelve Years a Slave. Snippets below, and you can read the whole article at the link.

On Raising Hope:

Iconic Interview: Raising Hope is really idiosyncratic and I can’t think of anything else like it. What do you think makes this unusual show so successful?
Garret Dillahunt: I think it’s because it’s good and funny and people can identify with it in some way. I don’t think it’s far-fetched to assume that.

You stop looking and there he is. Charlemagne Moody, in my inbox at last:

And let’s see if Greg Garcia can top that tonight. Luke Perry guest stars in “Arbor Daze” at 8 pm. Previews:

The Ghost of Arbor Day Past, Present, and Future pays a visit to Sabrina in the middle of the night, after she takes a stand against the way the Chance family celebrates Arbor Day.
