To play Mac this season, Rob McElhenney gained 50 pounds, just because he thought it would be funny. ”In sitcoms, people get better-looking as years go by,” explains the exec producer and star. On Sunny, ”we want to take the glamour out of entertainment.” Lots of ugly stuff will happen in season 7: Dee (Kaitlin Olson) holds a (fake) funeral for a baby; Dennis (Glenn Howerton) goes sociopathic at his high school reunion; and Frank (Danny DeVito) pulls a Pretty Woman. Says Howerton, also an exec producer: ”She’s not so much a hooker with a heart of gold as a hooker who bangs dudes and smokes crack.” (Sept. 15)
