‘Cooper Barrett’ Star Jack Cutmore-Scott on Fox Comedy’s ‘Hangover’ Vibe (Video)

Comparisons to “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” also increase with guest appearance by Alan Ruck, the actor tells TheWrap in latest episode of “Drinking With the Stars”

Fox’s new midseason comedy “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” has drawn comparisons to both “The Hangover” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” and that’s not unintentional on the show’s part.

Jack Cutmore-Scott, who plays the title character on the fourth wall-breaking sitcom, said in the latest episode of TheWrap’s “Drinking With the Stars” that the influence of those movies is in the show’s DNA, right down to a guest turn by “Ferris Bueller” star Alan Ruck.

“He was the most fun the whole week,” Cutmore-Scott said. “He just got the vibe of the show, which kind of made me feel like we were getting the ‘Ferris’ thing.”

“They just get better and better, to be honest,” Cutmore-Scott said of the show’s upcoming episodes. “Because we all start to get more comfortable with each other … I think that’s the thing with ‘The Hangover’ too, the vibe between the guys is what’s so fun to watch.”

The actor promised that the rest of the first season, which also stars Meaghan Rath, Charlie Saxton, James Earl and Justin Bartha, will bring more of the same “fun scrapes” that make up the first few episodes.

“All the episodes are kind of like the first two, where everything stems from something we can all sympathize with, like having that friend who’s more trouble than he’s worth,” he said.

“Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” airs Sundays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.
