Watch: 'Ben and Kate' stars Nat Faxon, Dakota Johnson and Maggie Jones discuss their TV family
Which of her co-stars does Jones find the funniest?
Much of the "Ben and Kate" appeal comes from the very real chemistry between the eponymous siblings played by Nat Faxon
and Dakota Johnson
, who form an unconventional parenting unit for Maddie (Maggie Jones
), her daughter and his niece.
A couple weeks back, I sat down with Faxon (an Oscar winner for the "Descendants" screenplay), Johnson (daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith) and Jones (who stole "We Bought a Zoo" scenes as well) about finding the rapport to portray this quirky family unit and about the real-life inspirations for their characters.
One of the things I've mentioned liking about "Ben and Kate" is Jones isn't just coasting on undeniable pint-sized cuteness. She's pretty funny in her her own right. Case-in-point, dig the improvised mixture of timing and comedy in her answer at the 4:48 point in the interview.
Check out the full interview.
"Ben and Kate" premieres at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday night on FOX.
