While Holly Hunter’s first big film role came in the Coen Brothers’ comedy Raising Arizona, the actress has been far better known for her dramas, including her Academy Award-winning performance in The Piano. So it comes as a bit of a surprise that she’s now starring in a new television comedy, Mr. Mayor, with Ted Danson. For Hunter, though, it’s not much of a surprise at all. She says she’s always loved doing comedy, and she felt like she couldn’t go wrong with a show from creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. (Click on the media bar below to hear Holly Hunter)
