Transcript for Catching up with ‘Black Monday’ star Andrew Rannells amid quarantine
Our next guest has gone from singing and dancing on Broadway to making us laugh on "Girls," one of my favorites and so is he. Andrew Rannells is starring in "Black Monday" and joins us, hi, buddy. How are you? Good. How are you? So nice to see you. Oh, I wish -- I want to give you a virtual hug. I just saw you on Andy Cohen. You were amazing. I'm so happy we get to talk again this morning. Congrats on "Black Monday" but first let's talk about quarantining. I'm quarantining with my lunatic dog. You are with your cute boyfriend tuck and homeschooling kids. How is that? Well, I mean that's a little bit of a stretch. I came back to Los Angeles in like mid-march or just in time to start the homeschooling process. And I've always been so grateful to the work that teachers do and I know how valuable it is. And maybe if it was more of like a dead poet's society situation I would have more luck but first grade reading, not so great. Not a great teacher, it turns out. The picture I sent is humorous of his son. All right. Let's also talk about "Black Monday" because you and tuck are starring in it together. It's a familiar concept, I dare say. You play boyfriends on the show as well. How is that working together, living together, the whole shebang? It's been great. We actually -- we met doing "Boys in the band" on Broadway and last summer the film version of it for Netflix and then this role came up in "Black Monday" and one of the producers from "Black Monday" was like, I worked with this guy tuck many years ago. What do you think about him? I just tried to be as cool as possible. I just worked with him actually on "Boys in the band" and he was great and just sort of let that be. Well, they were like, we hired tuck. I was like, great, that's my boyfriend. I wanted to let it play out as it was going to play out and knew that it was going to work out but some people were a little surprised I withheld that information until the last moment. But, you know. What can you do, Lara. It was kismet and you have great chemistry. We want to show everybody a clip. In this scene on "Black Monday" you guys are golfing. Take a look. I don't get it. So golf is actually a good thing? Yeah. There she is. Just act like you know what you're doing. Mother. Mother? You made it. My goodness. What a pleasant exactly what I was expecting quirky -- Hey, it's a pleasure to meet you. Charmed, I'm sure. Well -- Are you enjoying the course? Oh, it's the greatest game of my life. Very subpar. Oh, that is so awkward. I love this scene. I love this show. How is your golf game? Well, the good news is I've never golfed and then I didn't have to learn for the show because I was supposed to be bad at it so I was like, I can do that I can be a bad golfer and that's the amazing June Diane that plays his mother. So hilarious. We're coming back Sunday for the final part of our season and got a little interrupted in the middle and aired the first six and had to take a pause for post-production work but we are back on Sunday nights and we'll air our final four episodes so I'm excited to see how they turn out. Yeah, we're so excited too. I'm going to plug it again. Riva approves. You just got the seal of approval from my sidekick here. And I just want to brag on you because my favorite Broadway show besides "Hamilton" which I was blessed to see was "The prom" and I'm so excited you're starring in that with Meryl Streep coming to the big screen. You know I'm your number one fan. We'll be watching "Black Monday" season two looking for "The prom" starring my friend, Andrew Rannells. Everybody, tune in Sunday night to "Black Monday." Big kiss to you, Andrew. Big kisses to you, Lara. So good to see you.
