EW had three rounds with the Casual cast — and here's what they revealed
Casual? That’s an understatement. Sure, the Hulu series debuted last October with a sitcom-friendly premise: Divorced mom Valerie (Michaela Watkins) grabs her precocious teen daughter Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) and moves in with her troubled horndog brother Alex (Tommy Dewey). But the first season spiraled into a fascinating, funny, and sensitive portrait of deeply dysfunctional, desperate humans. Credit the cast for playing their parts in various states of emotional, mental, and physical undress. They’re game for anything – and that’s without booze!
