Jason Lee Rocks Raising Hope

Memphis Beat's Jason Lee brings some '80s glam into the lives of the Chance family on the November 30 episode of Fox's Raising Hope. He plays musician Smokey Floyd, who headlines the local market's "Grocery-Palooza" concert, much to the thrill of Burt (Garret Dillahunt). "Jason plays this sort of aging, falling-apart, former hair-band lead singer," says Martha Plimpton. "He comes to town to help rescue my husband, who's always wanted to play in a band." Lee, who's reteaming with Hope creator Greg Garcia (who also created Lee's 2005—2009 sitcom My Name Is Earl), spent hours in the makeup chair to get Smokey's worn-out look. "You probably won't be able to recognize him," says Plimpton. "He looks incredible!" Source Here

Why We Love Raising Hope's Cloris Leachman

She plays Raising Hope's Maw-Maw, the addled but still vivacious great-great-grandmother in what Leachman calls a "zany, off-the-wall, dysfunctional, in fact typical American family." Adds the 84-year-old, "I read the script and love [creator] Greg Garcia, so how could I resist?"
