7 Questions With David Costabile Of Showtime’s “Billions”

Wags, the sort of Wall Street ruler of the universe who defines arrogance, showed a bit of vulnerability recently on Billions. In the Showtime drama’s third season (which airs on Sundays), as Bobby Axelrod prepared to go to prison, Wags thanked him for true friendship. David Costabile of Breaking Bad and Lincoln milks the juicy part of hedge fund manager Wags. He mentions how shocked he is that people constantly tell him that his character reminds them of themselves. Honestly, Wags is not an admirable character. Costabile has taught classes on Shakespeare’s clowns at NYU. “It is strangely one of […]

Funniest Mom Ever: The Detour’s Natalie Zea talks Debbie Reynolds, cars and breast milk?

That didn’t just happen. Yep, she ate all of those pot-laced gummy bears and left her husband naked at the Swift Stays Suite pool. That’s the loopy, making-the-best-of-this-road-trip-gone-bad Robin Parker, whose questionable parenting — combined with such sincere explanations — make her one of the funniest moms on TV today. Natalie Zea is comic gold as Robin in the TBS breakout comedy The Detour (Mondays 9pm ET). The series comes from comedy’s new powerhouse couple Jason Jones and Samantha Bee and is achingly hilarious. The former Justified star (she played Raylan Givens’ love interest Winona) and The Following (she was Joe […]

7 Questions With … Chris Geere of FXX’s “You’re The Worst”

You’re The Worst follows two millennials as attempt to navigate life and love, but too often, they find both concepts just too much work.

As half of the legendary country music duo Brooks & Dunn, Kix Brooks has spent decades hunting down good meals while crisscrossing the country. Eventually, he realized his happily earned gustatory knowledge (Brooks is also co-owner of Tennessee’s Arrington Vineyards) might benefit his fans — and fans of a tasty piece of beef and a good glass of the grape to wash it down with — as well. “Jumping off a tour bus, somebody’d always be hanging around the bus and you’d ask, ‘Hey, where can you get a good steak around here?’ I realized everybody’s got some 30-minute story about […]
