What happens when two actors sit down together and interview one another? See Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jeffrey Tambor do just that int Variety’s Actors on Actors series.



On doing research for “Transparent, ” Tambor said, “I was very lucky I had some beautiful consultants from the trans community. I met with the great (writer) Jenny Boylan; I devoured her books. I met her in the Algonquin Room in New York, and we had a great conversation. I was shaking.”

On her role on “Veep, ” Louis-Dreyfus said, ” The idea of playing a powerful woman, or a powerful person who happens to be a woman, who is constantly thwarted because of gender perhaps, because of the landscape of government and politics, particularly in the United States, and to take on issues that we’ve taken on in our show — abortion, death penalty, guns — those aren’t necessarily even remotely funny. And to thread the needle and make a comedic story with those issues has been incredibly challenging.”
