Watch: Garret Dillahunt and Martha Plimpton talk 'Raising Hope'
Nakedness and playing a functional TV couple are discussed
Before last week's "Raising Hope
" premiere, I posted my interviews with Lucas Neff
and Shannon Woodward
, which both offered terrific insights into the charms of one of TV's most underrated (and, sadly, underwatched) sitcoms.
I wasn't buttering the actors up when I started the interview by calling Burt and Virginia one of my favorite TV couples. They may not be Coach and Mrs. Coach, but when it comes to portraying a perfectly well-adjusted marriage in a sea of maladjustment, it doesn't get much better than the work turned in by Dillahunt and Plimpton.
In addition to discussing the secret to portraying a functional TV couple, the two actors discuss the joys of on-camera humiliation (and nakedness), as well as the pleasures of the "Raising Hope" ensemble cast.

"Raising Hope" airs at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays on FOX.
