Jim Jefferies: FXX's 'Legit' Season 2 is 'substantially better than Season 1'

Jim Jefferies is very excited about "Legit" Season 2. The FXX comedy opted to move away from his standup material in its second season, and he thinks that is for the best. "I think it's substantially better than Season 1," he says during a conference call with reporters promoting the Season 2 premiere. After defining the characters of Jim, Billy (DJ Qualls) and Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) in the first season, "Legit" is free to get into the nitty gritty of their personalities in Season 2. That's not always for the best of the characters, though, as both Jim and Steve find themselves on a decline this season. "The character of Steve is very well-defined now," Jefferies says. "This season he becomes a full blown alcoholic, and it progressively gets worse throughout the season." Don't expect things to get much better for Steve, either. Jefferies likes the fact that Steve's struggles with alcohol don't feel corny... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/jim-jefferies-fxxs-legit-season-2-is-substantially-better-than-season-1.html

'Legit's' Jim Jefferies wants to be a 'RuPaul's Drag Race' guest judge

Jim Jefferies has more television aspirations than just "Legit." The Australian comedian really wants to make a guest appearance on another popular TV series: "RuPaul's Drag Race." It turns out that Jefferies' girlfriend is a big fan of the show, and it gets viewed often in their household. Because of that, Jefferies says he's now an expert on what makes a good or bad drag queen. During a conference call promoting the Season 2 premiere of "Legit," Jefferies expressed a desire to get to act as a guest judge on "RuPaul's Drag Race." "I'd do it properly and I wouldn't be rude or nothing," he promises. "It would make my girlfriend very happy." Beyond his desire to join "RuPaul's Drag Race," Jefferies is also a fan of some of the most esteemed dramas on television. He admits that he's been very much enjoying "True Detective" and "The Americans," as well as the recently wrapped "Breaking... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/legits-jim-jefferies-wants-to-be-a-rupauls-drag-race-guest-judge.html

'Legit' Season 2 teases: Life is going downhill for Jim and Steve

"Legit" didn't leave main characters Jim (Jim Jefferies) and Steve (Dan Bakkedahl) in the best places at the end of Season 1, and life doesn't get much better for them in Season 2. Still, according to the cast, watching their downward spirals is going to be so much fun for viewers. Zap2it visited the Venice, Calif., set of "Legit" in November when Jefferies, DJ Qualls, Bakkedahl and creator Peter O'Fallon were shooting one of the final episodes of Season 2. As they later teased at their 2014 TCA Winter Press Tour panel, this season will deal with Jim suffering from sex addiction and Dan being an alcoholic. It's not going to be a pretty sight. "The career's going downhill this season," Jefferies tells Zap2it and select other outlets on the set visit. "I might be a bit more famous next season if we get a third season. All of our lives are in a downward... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/legit-season-2-teases-life-is-going-downhill-for-jim-and-steve.html

'Legit' Season 2: Jim Jefferies, DJ Qualls explore FXX's 'comedy about depression'

"Legit" is heading with confidence into its second season. The cast and producers of the FXX critical darling took to its TCA 2014 winter press tour panel with no concern about how the somewhat touchy subjects of Season 2 will resonate. Among the storylines being explored on "Legit" are Jim's (Jim Jefferies) sex addiction, Steve's (Dan Bakkedahl) alcoholism and Billy's (DJ Qualls) use of an experimental drug to help him deal with his muscular dystrophy. Balancing out those serious plot arcs are scenes like one where Jim decides to urinate on Billy, who can't move to avoid it because of his disease. "It's amazingly poignant," co-creator Peter O'Fallon says of the urine scene. Jefferies adds, "It's as touching of a water sports scene as you've ever seen." But even with the ridiculous nature of some of Season 2's tales, expect "Legit" to stay grounded. O'Fallon says, "The one difference we have between a lot of... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/legit-season-2-jim-jefferies-dj-qualls-explore-fxxs-comedy-about-depression.html
