“Raising Hope” cast braces for toddler time
HollywoodNews.com: Emmy nominee Martha Plimpton lets us know that she and her “Raising Hope” cast mates are bracing themselves for season two of the popular Fox show. The title character on the comedy that focuses on a good-hearted yet very, very seedy family, is no longer an infant.
“She’s growing up in real time,” the actress reports. “We’re not freeze-drying her. She’s allowed to keep aging naturally. I imagine it’s going to affect things profoundly. She’ll be running around, talking. There’ll be a lot of things she won’t be willing to do — you know what I mean? Babies are a lot easier. Toddlers are a whole other thing.”
As for her own character, Virginia, Plimpton says, “I guess one of the bigger surprises is that she’s really convinced we’re going to see the end of the world in 2012. I mean, she’s really committed to that.”
Shooting is just now getting underway for the new season, and Plimpton tells us she feels ready to face those 16-hour days that are a regular part of “Raising Hope.” Over hiatus, the three-time Tony nominee performed in “Company” with the New York Philharmonic – a performance that was shown in movie theaters across the country.
