RAISING HOPE Nabs Greyson Chance For a Guest Arc
July 7, 2011 by Marisa Roffman
We’re still a few months away from the second season of RAISING HOPE and this particular piece of casting news is making the wait all the more difficult.
RAISING HOPE creator Greg Garcia tweeted earlier this morning that viral singing star (and THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW fave) Greyson Chance would appear on a few episodes of the show next season. While at least one RH star was surprised by the news, Fox confirmed the news to Give Me My Remote. (It’s kind of adorable that Chance is joining a show with a fictional Chance family, right?)
But how long will he be sticking around for and who will he be playing?
I’m hearing Chance will appear in three episodes of next season as a younger version of Jimmy…age 13 to be exact. It seems young Jimmy was a piano prodigy before a freak accident caused him to lose his abilities. Hm, wonder why they’ll be flashing back to that particular time period for three episodes?
What do you think? Are you excited Chance will be on RAISING HOPE? Are you hoping the writers find some excuse for him to sing?
