Read on to find out more!! Both of the episodes mark a return of Allison Janney to the show. My storyline winds up sort of intermixed with hers. It was such a good and great pleasure to work with her. As an actor it was such a thrill to be on set with her. In a world of actors, there are certain people who are famous and there are certain people who you really geek out over their skill level and she has such a wide set of skills.
Incredibly wonderful. It was really great to get to work with her. Was this a show that you had watched from the beginning, or did you binge watch once you got involved? I did watch — I watched the first season as it aired. You wind up traveling and not be able to stay in real time with your shows, so I went back to watch Season 2 before we started. Do you seek out the variety? In terms of me auditioning, I think that creates a spark for me that makes that role something special. I think I tend to book things that are usually very different from what I just did.
I totally get that — we get that sense from the characters you choose. Often times, the audience is relating most to the character you bring in — we can understand a lot of relatability from who you are on screen. I think a lot of that is possibly approach. I generally, I started in theater, I went to theater school.
When I get a script, I very much look at the whole, where I fit into it, from a wider point of few. From a character point, I dig in as deep in the character as I can. If we can all understand each other period, then we can live in a much nicer world. It also is the nicest group of people on the planet.
That feels like everything is right with the world. Talking about the show — are they going back for season 2 soon? Have there been more conversations about how the Kettlemans could fit in? They just started shooting Season 2. What I can tell, and what I think we talked about last time , maybe since last time, Peter Gould had said in several interviews, publicly, that they are looking for ways to bring the Kettlemans back. I leave that in the very capable hands of the writers.
You have done some web series, developing material for yourself — is that something you look to continue? We have 21 episodes up online. Through that, it was a very good experience for me. I did it as an experiment just to see if I could. I would like to see myself move that way. I would like to see more female voices in that world.
It can be very tough for women, so I kind of feel like I have that interest and I do have that passion, I have to step up and do what I hope everybody else does.
I hope that opportunities come. I hope it goes somewhere great. Do you have a genre you like to write or you feel ore comfortable in? So my web series was a comedy with some sort of tragic undertones. My fan tendencies are not following my writing!! I hope that changes. Did you get to go to Comic Con at all or have you ever? I would love to go to Comic Con. I went to E3 this year, and I went to the Star Wars celebration this year. I may as well have been a 7 year old at Disneyland! It was the most fun thing ever.
William H Macy I think is brilliant. My list runs odd. I always dreamed of working with Phillip Seymour Hoffman because I think he did such interesting work. I tend to not geek out over celebrities. I tend to geek out over really fine actors. I did a short-oolph Fiennes was really brilliant and interesting. Emma Thompson is unbelievable in my opinion. Helen Mirren. He really pushed us as actors to the outer limits of the scene. The way he directs, the scenes went in wildly different directions, so he can choose in the editing room where he wants to go with it.
Anybody that pushes me, I really latch onto quickly. I read an interview with Tom Hanks many, many years ago when I was just starting out. He creates a really fresh and unusual approach to the scene work, and it was really a pleasure to be on set with him.
Made the movie that much more insane and exciting to watch. That would have been a tragedy. That was such a great reveal and such a great moment as a fan, so I do understand it and will completely try to clamp down on everything. I love it, I do, too. Photo Credit: Nogen Beck.
