Rising Sitcom Star Hanging Out In Trees

SQUAMISH, B.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Not all sitcom stars have a cushy job.

Some even get treated worse than animals.

Case in point: James Tupper, the male lead on the new ABC sitcom, Men In Trees, which centers around a New York relationship coach played by Anne Heche, who moves to Alaska to help the mostly male citizens improve their luck with women.

Tupper has already had to film some scenes in the wilderness, including one where he’s following the whereabouts of a nocturnal bear.

It might be rough but, so far, he’s not had the benefit of a stunt double for any of his scenes.

Not so for the on set raccoon, who Tupper says his own stunt double: A dog.

But while Tupper jokingly laments he has it worse than the raccoon, he’s glad he didn’t have a double for a scene where Heche and he have hypothermia and have to keep warm by lying in bed together.

Men In Trees debuts September 22.
