Our sister site “Film Equals” just published a pretty interesting interview of Edwin Hodge who stars in the upcoming movie “Red Dawn” and also has a recurring rôle on the now TBS comedy Cougar Town. Here is an excerpt of what he had to say about the new upcoming season and the move to TBS:

You’ve been a part of several shows, including Cougar Town, which I’m glad to see is coming back. Can you give fans any idea of what to expect from the new season, particularly since it’s on a new network?

Edwin Hodge: It will be a little more risque with [its] jokes…I can clearly tell the difference [of] what it was like to write for a network like ABC and how they’re writing for TBS, so the jokes hit a little bit harder. I’m in an interracial relationship with Busy Phillips’ character on the show, so we play up the racial jokes a little bit and the sexual [jokes], but it’s still the same, wholehearted cast…We’re just a little big more spicier (laughs).

Aside from the jokes, is there anything else that the move to TBS has changed about the show?

Edwin Hodge: I don’t think anything has changed about the show at all. Busy Phillips–she’s still got that quirky, crazy, weird character that she plays on the show and Courtney [Cox] and her [onscreen] relationship with Josh [Hopkins]…like I said, they’re staying true to what was originally laid out, the original blueprint of the show. It’s just…the jokes are a little bit funnier.
