'The Big C' Star Talks About the Big Finale, Laura Linney, Season 2 & ... Bristol Palin?

John Benjamin Hickey, 'The Big C'If you haven't watched 'The Big C' because you think it's just a show about someone dying of cancer, you couldn't be more wrong. It has been the biggest, most pleasant, must-watch TV surprise all year.

Of course a show starring Laura Linney was going to garner some buzz, but the entire cast provides laughs, tears and genuinely touching moments every week. Recovering from a major character death last week, we go into the season finale knowing that change is imminent.

But does that mean Cathy will seek treatment for her cancer? Will her husband be able to deal with her decision? Will her son finally snap out of his teenage bubble? And will her eccentric brother Sean, played by John Benjamin Hickey, ever grow up?

I caught up with the hilarious Hickey to talk about this season's success, what's in store for tonight's finale (Mon., Nov. 15, 10:30PM ET on Showtime), his interesting past with costars Linney and Cynthia Nixon, his plea for a certain Oscar-winner to guest star, ghosts and ... Bristol Palin?
