Before the Emmys, TV Guide (where I work full time) decided to launch a series focusing on some of this year’s best performances. Appropriately, it’s called “Best Performances.”
Anyway, doing this series has been an absolute pleasure – partially because of the folks we’ve brought in, but mostly because I’ve been able to sit down with people for an extended period of time and talk about one episode of a show, or a scene. No pressure to make news, no huge, spanning topics; just chatting acting and process and structure and nerding out.
One of the first of these was with Brian Tyree Henry. We’ve still got a chunk on his awesome Atlanta performance, but man, was he good in his very, very tiny role on This is Us. Anyway, video above. Enjoy.
