Richard Dean Anderson and daughter Wylie at a movie premiere in June 2010.
Stargate star Richard Dean Anderson has updated his official website readers on a new project that he and his daughter Wylie are doing together: guest starring roles in Raising Hope:
I wanted you to know, first, that Wylie and I have been inked to appear, together, mind you, in an episode of “Raising Hope.” We are both very excited.
Wylie Anderson spent the summer in a camp for theatrical kids, and it looks like she’s well on her way in following in her father’s footsteps. She just recently made her father beam with pride on Twitter: “If you’re close by: The Music Man is playing @ CSUN (Cal. State University@Northridge.) W.Anderson shines in the chorus! Proud Dad, sighs…” Earlier this summer, Anderson wrote about her previous stage appearances:
For some time now I’ve been staying tight with Wylie. She’s had the lead in two productions, (“Phantom Tollbooth” and “Little Women”). And, my God!! She shone! She played Beth in “Women,” so things get pretty heavy for the actress playing her. She gets sick, and dies, ultimately. Wylie’s getting very close to being able to tap the emotional coffers she’s been adding to over the years. She made a dozen people in the audience weep openly, very audible sniffling for minutes after the death scene.
She just might have ‘it’. She certainly stands out when she shares the stage with others… she’s definitely got ‘something’ that gets her close to that…. space, that heart, the focus, intelligence, nerve…. Time will tell.
Raising Hope is an Emmy-nominated comedy show that just finished its first season on FOX. The second season will premiere Tuesday, September 20, at 9:30/8:30c. We currently don’t have the date for the Andersons’ episode, but will announce it in our Coming Soon feature when we know.
More about Raising Hope from their About page:
RAISING HOPE is a new single-camera family comedy from Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia that follows the Chance family as they find themselves adding an unexpected new member into their household.
At 23 years old, JIMMY CHANCE (Lucas Neff) is going nowhere in life. He skims pools for a living, parties every night and still lives at home with his family, including his MAW MAW (Cloris Leachman); his mother, VIRGINIA (Martha Plimpton) and his father, BURT (Garret Dillahunt).
Jimmy’s life takes a drastic turn when a chance romantic encounter with LUCY (guest star Bijou Phillips) goes awry once he discovers she is a wanted felon. Months later, when Jimmy pays a visit to the local prison, he learns Lucy is pregnant with their baby, and after she gives birth, he is charged with raising their daughter.
