HOT FROM FOX...

JASON LEE TO ROCK ON "RAISING HOPE"

"My Name Is Earl" Alum to Guest-Star in Upcoming Episode

Next All-New RAISING HOPE Airs Tuesday, October 26, on FOX

Golden Globe nominee Jason Lee, who was the lead character on HOPE creator Greg Garcia's "My Name is Earl," has signed on to guest-star in the upcoming "Burt Rocks" episode of RAISING HOPE. Lee will play SMOKEY DANIELS, a washed-up rock star who is hired as the lead act at "Grocery-Palooza," a rock concert at the supermarket where SABRINA (Shannon Woodward) works. Smokey was once BURT's (Garret Dillahunt) musical idol, and Burt hopes to relive his rock-star years by playing backup for him at the concert.

In the one-hour "Happy Halloween/Family Secrets" episode of RAISING HOPE, airing Tuesday, Oct. 26 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, SABRINA's (Shannon Woodward) boyfriend can't make it to the deli guy's Halloween party, so JIMMY (Lucas Neff) offers to put on his costume and go in his place. VIRGINIA (Martha Plimpton) takes MAW MAW (Cloris Leachman), who is dressed as a cat, trick-or-treating while BURT (Garret Dillahunt) plots ways to play tricks on Jimmy. Meanwhile, when a box containing videos of Hope's mother arrives from prison, Jimmy must decide whether or not to let HOPE see them. Virginia explains that children need to be protected from the truth, leading Jimmy to question what exactly his parents have been keeping from him.

With a flourishing career that includes an Independent Spirit Award for his performance in writer-director Kevin Smith's "Chasing Amy" and memorable roles in multiple features for such directors as Smith, Cameron Crowe and Lawrence Kasdan, Jason Lee has solidly established himself among critics, directors and peers. Lee starred in and produced the half-hour comedy series "My Name is Earl," and received two Golden Globe nominations and two SAG Award nominations for his role. Lee also plays "Dave" in the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movies. Currently, he is in production on "Memphis Beat," and is co-writing a pilot for Adult Swim. Lee is a professional photographer, as well as an avid supporter and collector of the arts. He is also actively involved with his skateboard company, Stereo Sound Agency, which recently celebrated its 15-year anniversary.

As previously announced, FOX has ordered an additional nine episodes of RAISING HOPE, bringing the series to a full-season order.

Created by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia, RAISING HOPE follows the Chance family as they find themselves adding an unexpected new member into their household. The series stars Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Shannon Woodward. Cloris Leachman guest-stars as Maw Maw.

RAISING HOPE is produced by Amigos de Garcia Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Garcia serves as executive producer on the series.
