How does it feel wearing that Warbler ensemble? It’s the coolest thing in the world. The Warblers are pretty badass.
I bet Darren misses it. Oh, he does! I can confirm that. Whenever he sees me in that Warbler uniform, he’s very vocal about how jealous he is. [Laughs.] When we filmed the Warbler number for “Michael,” he was there, stalking us. I think it kind of kills him to see a cool Warbler number happening when he can’t be a part of it. But it would be hard for me too! The Warbler numbers are some of the best on the show, and if it was happening and I didn’t get to be apart of it, I’d be jealous too. Granted, Blaine has some pretty cool things happening on his own in this episode.
SMASH, great or the greatest new show this season?
Depends on who you ask. And you’re asking me so … I REALLY like it.
I’ve seen the first four episodes and I’m hungry for more. And I can’t really say if it’s the greatest new show of the season because some shows haven’t rolled out yet (“GCB,” “Don’t Trust the B—— in Apartment 23,” etc.), but from what I have seen it is great and will probably easily climb the ranks in my favorite shows list. Have you seen the first episode, anon? Your thoughts?
I see you're a Kristen Bell fan? So no doubt you're watching House Of Lies. So what did you think of the toe sucking scene? You can also say with pride that "I loved Pootie Tang because that was the first time I ever saw Kristen Bell" LOL
I watched a bunch of “House of Lies” in December to prepare for my interview with KBell. I saw some episodes out of order, but I definitely liked more of the later ones, the characters start to open up and grow.
Be on the look out for a brief post with some stuff from Ms. Bell after tonight’s episode!
Did you have to do anything that made you uncomfortable? In one episode, a guy sucks on your character’s foot. Did you have a foot double?
Oh, no, no. That wasn’t uncomfortable at all! [Laughs] Having an actor I just met put my foot in his mouth? No, I did not have a foot double. I’m not really into doubles for stunts or anything else, but it was as awkward as it seems to be. You know, I had just met another actor who, as per the crazy script written, needed to put my foot in his mouth. We talked about it and I washed my foot and he had a mint — just for shits and giggles — and we just kind of went for it. We didn’t practice it at all, obviously, because: No. 1) Why would you? That’s weird. No. 2) We wanted it to be realistically awkward when we did it.
I think it worked.
During the actual execution though, it didn’t feel — the sensory of it — didn’t feel as awkward as I thought.
And Jeannie discovers that as well.
Exactly. [Laughs] Jeannie and Kristen are a real big parallel and it is frightening. [Laughs]
Do you think there’s still hope that The Good Wife writers will finally give more screentime, a bigger role and a more consistent storyline to Cary this season? After 3 seasons I’ve almost given up…
I think this year has been pretty good for Cary … he has a very surprising moment in tonight’s episode. With Cary, I think he’s changed the most little by little, they aren’t rushing it, it seems more of a natural growth from Season 1.
