It’s not each week that you simply get to flip a desk over [in episode seven, when Tom celebrates avoiding prison by trashing Greg’s office].

It’s not. And it was very therapeutic. The stage instructions had been, Tom destroys Greg’s workplace. In order an actor you’re like, OK, great, right here we go.

Ought to we empathize with Tom? In spite of everything, he’s actually solely on this horrible marriage due to his personal fascination with wealth and status, proper?

They’re all human—[as a viewer] you most likely discover much less to align your self with with somebody like Logan. However I believe it’s OK to empathize with them, that’s what makes them human and actual, I suppose. In any other case they’re simply caricatures.

A serious Tom spotlight this season was the Nero and Sporus monologue. It seems like this season the connection between Tom and Greg has been more strange than ever, with much more humor, stress, possibly even a splash of homoerotic stress...

[laughs] It’s fascinating what individuals venture onto Tom and Greg. They've a symbiotic relationship—they want one another, Tom’s form of on shaky floor. He’s all the time on shaky floor. Greg is someone he can attempt to dominate and push round, but additionally he actually likes him. It’s a very fascinating relationship. Nic and I, we don’t determine the best way to play the scene. We simply bounce in and have enjoyable with it. So the colours that come out, they’re not labored out [in advance]. It’s great working with him, as a result of there’s a lot happening with these two in between the traces.

Additionally after we’re speaking highlights, I’m undecided if you already know, however “I bought a dick the dimensions of a crimson sequoia and I fuck like a bullet prepare” was a giant hit.

[laughs] The most effective factor about that was [in one take], after I say “I fuck like a bullet prepare,” Nick ad-libs “Yea? Show it.” [And as] Tom [I go], “What?” Such a phenomenal Greg line, he all the time has to have a rejoinder, get the final phrase. We had actual hassle, me and Nic, within the Compliments Tunnel. It took eight or 9 takes, possibly, to get by that with out laughing. It was actually tough.

Now that we’re three seasons in, a remark that’s typically made concerning the present is that the youngsters are all trapped in loops of attempting to please Dad, lashing out at Dad. And the individual we see lastly break their loop shouldn't be one of many youngsters, however Tom.

Sure. It’s thrilling, particularly for the place it would go. And I do not know the place it would go. I’ve by no means been a part of any dialogue but—I’m undecided Jesse and the writers know the place it’s going to go both. I don’t know when they'll begin up the room once more, in January most likely.

In that case, let’s put it on the market: The place do you hope Tom goes?

[Laughs] I don’t know, is the truthful reply. And I truly don’t thoughts. I don’t really feel proprietary about it.

I'd think about it might be enjoyable to play a Tom that’s probably extra villainous, extra assertive.

No matter they provide me, I’ll bounce in.
