'Raising Hope' Keeps Getting Gayer
By Jerry Portwood
We already told you about Martha Plimpton and her sexy onscreen Raising Hope husband Garrett Dillahunt. As Plimpton told us: “Yes, he’s hot! It’s no surprise people fall in love with him. Not only that, he’s one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with. It takes a really smart guy to play so dumb.”
But in this week's Halloween-themed episode, Jimmy asks his father Burt (Dillahunt who, by the way, will play one half of a gay couple who adopt a teenager with Down syndrome in Any Day Now) to give advice on what to expect hanging out with butchy girlfriend Sabrina's gay friends. So what does Burt do? He spends some quality time at the local gay bar. What a dad! But when Burt keeps going back to the bar, Virginia (Plimpton) wonders if he’s enjoying his time there a little too much and tracks him down in costume on Halloween night. Got that?
Well, as The Advocate also points out, on last week's episode of Raising Hope, viewers learned Jimmy's boss Barney (Gregg Brinkley) has two mommies — and he calls them when times are tough. Any more gay subplots gonna pop up? If you thought Modern Family was the gayest TV show these days, maybe it's time to think again.
Watch "Raising Hope" Tuesday, October 30 at 8 p.m. EST on FOX.
