FOX(NEW YORK) — Cheryl Hines is best known as the long-suffering wife of Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but these days she plays a very different role on the new Fox hybrid live-action/animated comedy, Son of Zorn. As the ex-wife of the animated Zorn, she’s actually the mother of Zorn’s son, which, she tells ABC Radio, is always a fun conversation to have with her friends.
Hines laughs, “Yeah, that’s the part that’s hard to explain to my friends… ‘cause they’re like, ‘Talk me through it, you have a son with an animated character?’ and I’m like, ‘Well, let’s not overthink it.’ You know what I mean? Are you trying to figure out, anatomically? Yeah, so, after a few margaritas is gets really interesting.”
On the show, Zorn is a warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, where everything and everyone is animated. He returns to Orange County, California, to win back his live-action ex-wife and teenage son. Featuring the voice of Jason Sudeikis as Zorn, the show also stars Johnny Pemberton as his son, Alan, and Tim Meadows as Edie’s fiancé, Craig.
Son of Zorn airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
