“I was a little nervous about meeting her because her scene is so outrageous and I was afraid she might get on the set and balk. Not only did she not, but she thought the scene was too soft, and asked us to amp it up a little. We ended up coming up with a couple of things for her to do that weren’t scripted, but were insane. To give you an example [her scene] is about a couple (her and Stephen Merchant) who play Truth or Dare on a first date. Among other things she ended up sticking her bare breast into a bowl of guacamole. She couldn’t have been more fun to work with.”
I was in Las Vegas, performing with Second City at the time. I had sort of lost a little bit oflove for the art form of sketch comedy and made friends with the Blue Man Group guys. So I auditioned—and really went for it, too. The acting was easy, but the drumming was like not having my lines memorized. I was sweating cobalt blue. …I did feel a little bit like a boob when the geniuses at Arrested Development—and I mean that sincerely—made Tobias so fascinated with it. I was kind of like, ‘Aw, man. That was me.’ One hundred percent. But I like to think Mitch Hurwitz and the Arrested gang, in the back of their heads, were like, ‘No, it’s a cool show.’”
