Ron Quits Fake-Dad Job for the 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Aug 2nd 2010 10:14AM
Ron Quits Fake-Dad Job for 'Sons of Tucson'Ron has been "working" as the father of the Gunderson brothers while their dad is in prison. On 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 7:30PM ET on FOX), he finds a secret bedroom stocked with a big bed, flat-screen TV, wet bar and basketball half-court. A lush, clean bathroom is attached.

"I have been sleeping like a hobo on the couch downstairs," says Ron, "and this room has been here empty the whole time?" Gary says they're saving if for their real dad. Besides, "What are you complaining about? Your last apartment got towed away while you were still sleeping in it," says Gary.

That may be true, but Ron huffs, "I don't need this job!" Gary and his siblings don't seem to need him either, saying he's replaceable. Both parties may be bluffing in the moment, but Ron follows through: "I quit!"

The Driving Game on 'Sons of Tucson'Video game skills come in handy on the latest 'Sons of Tuscon' (Sun., 7:30PM ET on Fox). Ron and his best friend Glenn (played by Tyler Labine and Joe Lo Truglio) are pulled over by the police while driving: and neither one of them can handle getting another ticket. Quick! The two of them need to come up with a clever plan. Unfortunately, "clever plans" aren't exactly in the duo's repertoire.

First Kiss on 'Sons of Tuscon' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jul 12th 2010 2:50AM
First Kiss on 'Sons of Tuscon'A first kiss can be an awkward time for anyone. Especially if you're receiving terrible advice from your fake "father." As is the case on the latest 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 7:30PM ET on Fox).

[Spoiler alert.]

Fake dad Ron (Tyler Labine) is trying to do his best. And he's certainly trying to give good advice to "son" Gary. Unfortunately, his words of wisdom involve terrifying Gary (Frank Dolce) when he's about to have his first kiss ever.

But there are always two sides to every story. Gary cleverly ignores Ron's advice. But once he kisses the girl, she instantly starts acting clingy and insane. So what's the right moral or message here? Always listen to a father-figure? Never kiss anyone? Or is there another, better message?

Stressful Father's Day on 'Sons of Tucson'Ah, Father's Day. It's a holiday that doesn't get enough respect. (Mother's Day probably doesn't get enough respect either, but it's at least better celebrated than dad's day.)

A "Sleepover" Gone Wrong on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

A 'Sleepover' Gone Wrong on 'Sons of Tucson'The problem with teenage boys (or girls) is that they tend to lie. At least, they tend to do this when they want to leave the house and do cool stuff.

Robby Humiliates Gary on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Jun 7th 2010 6:00AM
On 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 7:30PM ET on FOX), the Gunderson boys get chicken pox. Being able to skip school and avoid classmates would normally be fun -- but little Robby (with the help of modern technology) manages to embarrass Gary in front of his whole class.

[Spoiler alert.]


Thinking he's alone in his bedroom, Gary raps, dances and beat-boxes around the room -- in his underwear. Robby sidles up to the door frame. "You enjoying yourself, Craphead?" asks Gary when he spies Robby watching him.

"Not as much as your class is," says Robby, pointing to the computer webcam. This will warp him for life. Or at least until he graduates.

That Was Quick: FOX Pulls 'Sons of Tuscon'

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 5th 2010 6:25PM
Sons of Tucson From the very first commercials for Fox's 'Sons of Tucson,' it was hard to imagine the show lasting. It looked like a vehicle designed for Jack Black that fell in Tyler Labine's lap - three kids hire a bearded, chubby slacker to pose as their dad when their real father goes to prison. Labine even says, in the debut episode, that he is going to "rock it hard."

It was your standard non-standard family unit (undoubtedly with heart) that has been the bread and butter of sitcoms for decades. Precocious kids, a funny guy with a bit of a beer tummy - how could it fail?

'Sons of Tucson' Guys Add Illegal Aliens to Family Photos (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 5th 2010 4:00AM
Illegal Aliens on 'Sons of Tucson'Thanks to photo manipulation, green screen and a confused-looking group of illegal aliens, Ron (Tyler Labine) and the Gunderson boys created a family photo album on last night's 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 9:30PM on FOX). Various childhood milestones were included, and Ron particularly enjoyed kissing his "bride" on their wedding day.

Said Ron, "Come on out, illegals! Let's take some photos.... We got our family -- my wife, your mother, little Brandon age 3, and this guy right here, weird Uncle Joe." Yeah, every family's got a weird Uncle Joe (or equivalent). Way to make those photos legit, Ron.

More Casting News: Tyler Labine to CBS, Neal McDonough Replaced by 'JAG' Star

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 30th 2010 3:06PM
LabineI caught up with 'Sons of Tucson' the other day, and you know what? It's pretty funny! The ratings aren't that great though, which is probably one of the reasons Tyler Labine has joined the pilot of a new CBS sitcom (that's him on the right riding over to CBS to sign the contract).

Labine will stay on 'Sons of Tucson' if FOX renews it. The new show is called 'True Love' and it's about four friends who live in New York (God, that a really generic description but shows aren't about plots it's about the writing). Everyone must love Labine because he has been offered this role more than once (he turned it down because 'Sons of Tucson' hadn't premiered yet). 'True Love' will also star Jason Biggs and Minka Kelly.

In other casting news, former 'JAG' star David James Elliott has replaced Neal McDonough in the pilot for ABC's 'Scoundrels.' We told you last month about this show, a "dramedy" starring Virginia Madsen as a mom who heads a family of crooks who decides to go straight after her husband is sent to jail. McDonough was going to play the husband but now he's out and Elliott is in.

Gary Explores a Worst Case Scenario on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 29th 2010 2:04AM
Sons of Tucson, The Golden TicketYou know how when something bad happens, you automatically go down that road of the worst case scenario? It's human nature, and that's just what Ron and the boys do on 'Sons of Tucson' (Sun., 9:30PM ET on Fox) when it appears that their ruse may be out in the open.

"Worst case scenario? Gabe tells his dad, who's a cop! You go to prison for child endangerment. You're looking at about ten years, but you'll probably insist on representing yourself, in which case, you'll get 20," says Gary.

Tyler Labine Tells Story of Dangerous Childhood Dare (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Mar 24th 2010 4:00PM
Foolhardy childhood dares are nothing new, but Tyler Labine's wins points for perhaps being one of the most dangerous. While in the ninth grade, the 'Sons of Tucson' star took a dive off a 93-foot cliff and broke several bones due to a poor landing, he said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Labine bit a hole in his tongue and broke two ribs and his sternum, he said. But, despite his injuries, he doesn't appear to have learned his lesson, and told Bonnie Hunt that kids should always accept crazy dares from their friends. (Seriously, though, don't.)

Ron Almost Gets Busted, Credits Meth-Use for Custody on 'Sons of Tucson' (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 22nd 2010 11:00AM
Sons of TucsonPosing as the dad for three kids who aren't yours is pretty weird, but when Ron ran into an old friend on 'Sons of Tuscon,' (Sun., 9:30PM EST on FOX), his excuse was even stranger than the situation.

His friend knows Ron didn't have kids three years ago and all of the boys are clearly older than three, so what line does Ron come up with?

"The truth is I had the boys before I met you," he said. "It's kind of the turkey baster situation without the turkey baster."

Leave it to Ron to say somebody's meth-use caused his happy ending.
