Kaitlin Olson Had One Request For Her It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Role

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" has maintained its charm over 15 seasons because every member of the gang is equally awful. The gritty sitcom is set in the dim lights of Paddy's Pub, a bar owned by a group of high school friends, Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney), and Charlie (Charlie Day). They employ Dennis' twin sister, Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson), as a bartender, and later by their father, Frank (Danny DeVito), as a manager. The show was created by McElhenney and originally featured Jordan Reid in the role of Dee. After the pilot was picked up for series, Olson joined the cast.

Kaitlin Olson Doesn't Hold Back On Her Stunts For It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia

Some of the most beloved episodes of the series are carried by Olson's performances, such as in Season 9's premiere "The Gang Broke Dee" or the Season 3 episode that delivers much of Dee's backstory, "The Aluminum Monster vs Fatty Magoo." Time and time again, Olson has proven that there is no line she will not cross for the sake of a terrific gag. This no-holds-barred approach to comedy is not qualified by fear of physical stunts, either. The "Sunny" cast is no stranger to dangerous stunts, but Olson in particular has developed a reputation for being the most committed member of the cast when it comes to delivering a dangerous bit.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Characters Will Never 'Grow And Be Better People,' Kaitlin Olson Promises

The jokes on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" might change, but the gang is solid as a rock. They're dependably, awful, stupid, and cruel in ways that make our hearts sing and make our stomachs hurt from the ab workout that is laughing. The writers might throw our core crew through a variety of wringers every season, but you can always depend on Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Dee (Kaitlin Olson), Charlie (Charlie Day), Mac (Rob McElhenney) and Frank (Danny DeVito) to be solidly bad people. And it's a relief, frankly (sorry). The world looks considerably different than it did when "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" first premiered in 2005. I mean, think of what you were doing in 2005. What you looked like, who your friends were, what your goals were. I mean, even thinking about what I was up to in 2005 makes me genuinely shudder, but you get the point. Things were different, and yet the gang stays the same.

Kaitlin Olson Has Some Damn Good Advice For Parents of Boys

If Deandra “Sweet Dee” Reynolds ever had a child, she’d be a lot like DJ, the petty, needy, pill-smuggling, deeply insecure celebutot Kaitlin Olson plays on HBO’s Hacks. The new show is an ode to bad parenting, and entitlement, far sharper and funnier than you’d have reason to expect. And it’s the perfect companion piece to Olson’s portrayal of the “Aluminum Monster” on the bitingly hilarious modern classic It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Playing a third-rate grifter on that show, Olson has mastered the deft art of being both loathsomely conniving and defiantly pitiful, a former high school laughingstock whose own mother called her a mistake in her will.

Meg Stalter, Kaitlin Olson, and More Join Upcoming Jean Smart Comedy on HBO Max

After redefining what a television show could do by fondling a giant blue Dr. Manhattan dildo on Watchmen, Jean Smart is working on an HBO Max comedy series in which she plays “a legendary Las Vegas comedian,” which just sounds decadently fun. In a press release on February 8, HBO Max announced that comedian Hannah Einbinder has been cast as Smart’s co-star, an “entitled, outcast 25-year-old” writer who becomes Smart’s mentee. Stage actor Carl Clemons-Hopkins has also signed on to play Smart’s “trusted longtime COO,” which we guess is more fun than playing a regular ol’ manager or agent. Though perhaps the most exciting thing about this press release is the rest of the supporting cast, which is an absolute murderer’s row of comedy performers: Kaitlin Olson, Paul W. Downs, and Quarry-laureate Meg Stalter will all round out the cast in recurring roles. Basically, the show sounds like Showgirls, but with Vegas comedians instead of Vegas exotic dancers. The show doesn’t have a name yet, but it comes out this spring, and we’re ready.
