Stars of The Real O’Neals talk about the show and their characters in these two video featurette’s from ABC. Martha Plimpton who plays Eileen, the mother of the O’Neal clan, and Kenny (Noah Galvin) talk about his coming out.
The Real O’Neals premieres 22 March and tells the story of Kenny O’Neal who “comes out” in a family that could, until that moment, be the poster-family for the perfect all-American Irish Catholic family.
Kenny’s revelation begins the O’Neals’ move to reality, instead of the facade that the clan, especially Eileen, has been carefully cultivating. With love, an attempt at understanding, and an awful lot of humor, the family learn to deal with their new “real” family.
With some pretty impressive cameos, watch the pilot and you will see what we mean, The Real O’Neals tickles a pretty mean funny bone.
