8 Questions With … Megan Mullally

1. What has been your strangest fan encounter? Megan Mullally: I have a lot of fans who want to look like me, so I have a lot of fans who cut their hair like me and wear glasses.

Chef Homaru Cantu’s unique approach to cuisine is featured in the series Future Food, […]
