'The Middle's' Neil Flynn: 'Too much doing what I want, when I want'

Neil Flynn was kicking around show business for 20 years when his big break came from what was supposed to be a nothing, one-time role on "Scrubs."He was the janitor."There was no promise that he would ever appear again after the pilot," Flynn tells Zap2it. "And then Bill Lawrence, who created the show -- [who] I owe an eternal debt to -- he just wrote me into every show for eight years."Flynn now plays Mike Heck, the dad on ABC's "The Middle.""Mike and Frankie (Patricia Heaton) balance each other well as characters," Flynn says. "And they are believable."The comedy, which often flies under the radar, "is relatable," he says. "It is pretty grounded."This show has also been wonderful for him, he says. "The producers of 'The Middle' were looking forward for me to audition," Flynn says. "And that is the only time anyone has ever anticipated my arrival at an audition! That they would give... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/the-middles-neil-flynn-too-much-doing-what-i-want-when-i-want.html

In Praise of The Middle's Eden Sher

Who do you want you to be tomorrow? Because we kind of want to be Sue Heck.  Inspired by last night's episode — in which the misfit teen found her spirit animal in guest Whoopi Golberg's super-supportive guidance counselor — the Watercooler felt the need to address the joy of watching The Middle 's Eden Sher kill it every week. As the Heck family member who's only real skill seems to be indefatigable optimism, we'd say that Sher has turned the character into a lovable loser, but she has always been a winner in that regard. Ever since the pilot, whether it's been barely registering in her high school's social scene or having to put up with her embarrassing brothers, she is the ultimate Jan Brady who thinks she's a Marcia. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Watercooler-Eden-Sher-1046871.aspx?rss=breakingnews

The Middle: Eden Sher talks Whoopi Goldberg and Sues braces

Whoopi Goldberg guest-stars on "The Middle" Wednesday (May 2), and Eden Sher says "I don't have English words" to describe what it was like working with her."Just my excitement and genuine enthusiasm and awe and inspiration and sort of overwhelmed-ness -- I wish there was a word for that feeling," Sher tells Zap2it. "It was the most magical two days of my life. I threw up in front of her out of nervousness."Really?"True story. Yeah."The episode has Sher's determinedly optimistic Sue seeking out her guidance counselor (Goldberg) when she's feeling a little down and discovering a grown-up version of herself: "She just thinks, wow, this is an incredibly understanding and cool adult," Sher says. "Nobody else, of course, sees that. But I think that's how Sue identifies with her ... she's like, 'Oh my god, this is the coolest person ever.' And everyone else is like, 'Who?'"Sher, who's 20 years old, jokes that you couldn't... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/the-middle-eden-sher-talks-whoopi-goldberg-and-sues-braces.html

Carly's older brother, Spencer (Jerry Trainor), is her wacky guardian, as their parents are in the military."The Middle" (2009- ): If you're looking for a comedy to watch with your kids, this is it.
