So, did a fan end up coming on the show? Yes, we did have one come. It was a girl. Not young enough though! It was a back shoulder tattoo. You guys will be present at her wedding day.
I love the episode where you all go to your high school reunion and Dee got to be cool for about an hour. What was your actual high school experience like?
And I went to a really big high school — I think there were like people in my graduating class — and I think I probably knew about 10 of them. I just loved how quickly I turned on everyone else, to be cool for 15 minutes. That also brings to mind the episode where you all get invited to prom, except for Mac I went to my prom with a guy who, the person that he wanted to go with went with someone else, so he just asked me because his friend was going with my friend.
But we do have a lot of fun together. So, yeah, they definitely make fun of me all the time for getting hurt. And everyone is a good sport. Well, this first episode of the season, where the gang breaks Dee, I think Glenn Howerton is so unbelievable in that episode. Charlie is unbelievably funny. And Danny is just constantly goofing off, trying to make everyone laugh. If we have anybody new on our set, oh my god, he starts putting on a show, he turns on. How long did you and Rob work together before you became involved?
We started dating, secretly, in season two. How long did you keep it a secret? Which seemed like forever, but we only shoot for like two and a half months. They were very surprised. Rob works on this show year round, I do other things and work on this show two months out of the year. At what age will you let the kids [now 3 and 18 months old] watch the show? He thought it was hilarious. Were you grossed out when Rob gained all that weight for season eight?
Oh my god, I thought it was hilarious. It was worth it: But some changes needed to be made. Though McElhenney originally imagined his characters as actors, too many Hollywood-centric series had already hit the airwaves Entourage, The Comeback, etc. But Sweet Dee is as selfish and childish as any other character on the show, and the audience loves her for it. That, and the possibility of adding a bona fide star to the still-unknown cast.
And Rob went to talk to Danny at his house. And they did a great job with that. They see things in a really unique way. We have an episode about a child beauty pageant, thrown at the bar. The biggest challenge for that episode — and it took us a long time to lock into how we would do it — was figuring out why and how these characters end up throwing a pageant. So, we had to come up with something. And, we get kids because the kind of parents that put their children in these situations usually [are willing to do that].
Season 2 was a challenge. The challenge is not coming up with concepts or ideas for what these characters can get into. The challenge is always building a good story around it and grounding it, in its own way. Obviously, the universe that these characters live in is a little bit heightened.
So, coming up with a child pageant is one thing. Figuring out how to get into it and what it has to do with the world, so that it feels like its relevant, as opposed to just a joke, [is another]. I just mean that there are a lot of things to make fun of. Structuring it and making it really work, as an episode, is the toughest part. What cameos do you have on tap for this year?
Jason Sudeikis is back, for just a quick thing. The Kings of Leon make a brief appearance. They had that whole thing with Glee, where they were asking to use one of their songs.
Lance Reddick is going to be on the show, in the same episode that Polito is in. We have a surprise one, to announce later this season. At this point in the run of the series, does FX let you do what you want? They trust us, a lot more. And, they still give us great ideas, too. Do you see the show coming back for a Season 8 and 9? What do you guys look for in movie roles? A beginning, middle and end.
The characters have to want something.
