New interviews and Raising Hope sneak peeks

garret dillahunt,raising hope,gambling againRaising Hope 2×12, “Gambling Again,” airs tonight at 9:30 pm. Synopsis:

Burt becomes obsessed with gambling when he believes he can reclaim all the items he lost when he bet away all the Chance’s belongings nearly 20 years ago. Worried about his bad habit reemerging, Virginia and Jimmy try to intervene but soon get swept up in the betting frenzy and develop their own gambling habit. But their luck begins to run out when they miss Shelley’s staged play written by Sabrina and starring Hope as the lead.

If the press release is anything to go by, Dale Dickey from Winter’s Bone guest stars.

I’ve added pages for the next two episodes: 2×13 Tarot Cards (with pics), 2×14 Jimmy’s Fake Girlfriend. And I’ll get to that movie too one of these days.

Three sneak peeks from tonight’s episode are embedded below. Before that, a couple of interviews showed up since the last update. The first one is from KTLA (via Raising-Hope.us). It aired before “Mrs. Smartypants,” but was posted online a bit later.

Interviews from the Winter TCA Press Tour

garret dillahunt,martha plimpton,raising hope,mrs smartypantsSeveral new interviews from the Winter TCAs showed up in recent days. The first one is from Examiner:

Fred Willard guest stars in “Mrs. Smartypants” as a high school teacher with a history with the Chance family who comes back into their lives when Jimmy decides to go back to school and earn his GED. And his parents end up following him into the classroom.

“None of us want to be the dumbest person in the house, so it’s ‘if you’re going to go, then we will to’!” Garret Dillahunt previewed for us when we caught up with him in Los Angeles last week.

Though we had personally assumed Burt and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) had actually graduated, Dillahunt shrugged and said “apparently not.” Well, they did have their hands full with a new baby and all! And the cycle was repeated for Jimmy (Lucas Neff), who decides to better himself when he sees indication of above-average intelligence in his daughter, Hope (Baylie and Rylie Cregut). — More at Examiner

And these two are from FOX All Access and TV Watchtower:

Christmas on Raising Hope: previews and cast interviews

garret dillahunt,raising hope,christmas episodeE! Online talked to Garret, Lucas Neff and Shannon Woodward about tonight’s episode, “It’s a Hopeful Life.” The clip is embedded below (can’t turn off autoplay, sorry), along with a couple of sneak peeks, and here is the synopsis:

In a nod to the holiday classic “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the Chances go to the movies and are surprised when they discover that the film they’re watching is strikingly similar to their own family life. Meanwhile, Jimmy is transported into a cinematic dreamlike state and experiences the world as though he never met Hope’s serial killer mom Lucy (guest star Bijou Phillips). But when he returns to reality, he soon realizes that life without Hope would not be nearly as sweet.

The episode airs at 9:30 pm.
