Molly Shannon and Martha Plimpton

Molly Shannon joins Raising Hope on Nov. 22 as supermarket Howdy's newest owner. Not satisfied with just pushing produce, she transforms the store into an art gallery and performance space after-hours, where Virginia (Martha Plimpton) and Hope (Baylie and Rylie Cregut) put on a fake ventriloquist show.

"Molly plays an extremely overachieving woman," says Plimpton. "She's perfectly hilarious — and someone Virginia could learn a lot from."

Raising Hope returns Friday, Nov. 8 at 9/8c on Fox.
