The cast of FOX’s new hit show “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” is visiting cities across the country before the return of all new episodes in a couple of weeks.
Tuesday morning, stars of the show visited The Rhode Show to talk more about it and the new season.
COOPER BARRETT (Jack Cutmore-Scott, “Kingsman: The Secret Service”) is halfway into his twenties, but still doesn’t know what he wants to do with his life. He lives with his two best friends: NEAL (Charlie Saxton, “Betas,” “Hung”), who has very bad luck when it comes to women, and BARRY (James Earl, “Ground Floor,” “Glee”), the group’s very own “loveable jackass,” who can’t stop getting himself, and everyone else, into trouble. Cooper has accidentally fallen in love with their across-the-hall neighbor, KELLY BISHOP (Meaghan Rath, “Being Human”), but she has become such a solid part of their group that romance may complicate the friendship they already have. Cooper’s 40-year-old-brother, JOSH (Justin Bartha, “The New Normal,” “The Hangover” franchise) is constantly popping in to hang with the fellas and get some alone time away from his wife, LESLIE (Liza Lapira, “Super Fun Night”), and their two kids. Cooper and his friends don’t have all the answers, but the one thing they do have is each other. As Cooper struggles to survive each of life’s many challenges – a night in jail, crazy exes, going broke, visits from parents and landlords – he will guide us through the often-messy, always-hilarious ordeal, so that our lives don’t have to be nearly the entertaining disaster that Cooper’s is turning out to be.
