It’s impossible to root for someone harder than I’m rooting for Robert Sheehan right now.

He’s one of the stars of the UK’s E4 (and now Hulu) show “Misfits.” It’s a superhero show that’s actually good. It won a BAFTA for Best Drama Series—which is like the best Emmy you can get presented by someone with a British accent. Within five minutes of talking to this dude, he said these two sentences in a row.

“Do you need any organs? Well, I certainly need an augmentation, according to the porn sites that I sometimes peruse.”

This is him talking about Skype.

This guy would be a superstar in America if anybody knew who the hell he was.

“Misfits” is on Hulu starting today. Maybe this will change that.

In the only other part we omitted from this interview, he called a member of the “Grey’s Anatomy” cast “a post-op transsexual.” We’re not going to say which one. We like him a lot. We want him to succeed. We don’t want him to get in public fistfights with alleged post-op transsexuals.

Well, we do. But we want him to be famous first.

Who are the "Misfits"? The U.K. show about unruly teens that become unlikely superheroes is here now on Hulu, and we've got an inside look!

In "Misfits," Lauren Socha, Robert Sheehan, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Antonia Thomas and Iwan Rheon play juvenile delinquents forced to do community service as payback for their crimes. But when a freak electrical storm hits their town, they're transformed into superheroes, each with a power they didn't choose or want that reveals each of their deepest, darkest insecurities. As they grapple with the challenges of everyday teenage life -- relationships, friendships, parents and sex -- they must band together to save their town from the evil that has descended upon it.

The entertaining "Misfits" has received awards and critical acclaim in the U.K., and even "Glee" star Kevin McHale is a fan of the show, having shared his excitement with tweets such as, "Dear Misfits (cast, creative team, crew): why are you so brilliantly amazing? you be perfect, yo. everyone is just incredible," and, "day 2 of watching misfits allllll day. can't get any better."

The first two episodes of "Misfits" season one are available now on Hulu.com. Also premiering on Hulu are the U.K. shows "The Booth at the End," a psychological thriller (on July 11), and the kitchen comedy "Whites" (on July 20).
