Eric Wareheim (who also acts as a director for the show) plays Arnold, the main foil for Aziz Ansari’s Dev, and a fascinating dynamic is explored between the two of them. We have a lot of talks about life, and women, and food. I was going to say, your character’s lines feel so in tuned to you that it almost feels like you’re going off book entirely. Are you guys doing a lot of adlibbing, or is the script just so in touch with your personality? I kind of told Aziz and Alan that the only way I could really give a natural performance is if I kind of go off book. I’m not exactly trained as an “act-or.” So it might feel kind of natural, but it’s really just us riffing. You kind of just get the main idea where you want to make things really real, and then we’ll get one — we’ll get a take as written in the script, and then the guys will decide on what the best one is. Your performance here as Arnold is great, but I’ve always been very interested in your directing career. We did a lot of scenes that were extended versions of what made it into the cut. I feel that sort of relationship with the city is almost needed in order to pull that off authentically. TV is almost giving me anxiety right now from all the shows I have to catch up on. I feel like I’m just behind in everything — I haven’t seen this week’s Fargo or The Knick yet — and I get stressed out.I had the pleasure of talking to Eric about constructing the DNA of this series, what this show is trying to do differently, and what about modern dating frightens him the most. You’ve done some amazing music video work, “Polite Dance Song”, “Ham”, and “Wishes” are videos that I’m regularly watching because their composition is so gorgeous. I’ve been working really on my own up here — Tim Heidecker of course, but — this is my first big project with a large cast and a great location to make it really cool. I think I hit the right essence and all of that stuff. We touched on New York briefly, but obviously it’s such a huge presence in the show. I did feel like it was a second home to me; so living there made me truly, truly fall in love with the city. I’m going back tomorrow for the premiere, and I’m just excited to be back in the city. I took special care to photograph it really beautifully and give it this true honor. I get dread over like, “Okay, I need to catch up on that.” It can avalanche on you.Leif and C-Boy square off in Ex-Treme hackey sack, Dr.Steve Brule reports on fruits and vegetables, Casey and his Brother perform "Time Travel" on The Uncle Muscles Hour, Tim and Eric revive the old "Waiting Room" sketch, a new Cinco toy B'owl is advertised, and Tim makes a call to pest control about his bees and his disappointing son.
Tim retaliates by having his dad praise him on camera, however Eric exposes a lie.
Tim later loves the tape and they make up to each other with the help of David Liebe Hart's knowledge.
Steve and Mike Mahanahan advertise their child-clowns and child-clown shoe rental services, David Liebe Hart and his puppet Jason sing about the Korendians and meeting in the light, Tim and Eric give a seminar on how to build a successful sitcom writing career, and Tim and Eric's assistant Simon presents them various numbered elderly ladies in Here She Comes.
You’ve had tremendous freedom with Adult Swim but is that new model still attractive to you? Right now I’m in this crazy world of too many shows that are DVR’d. I was going to say, you’re the token minority on this show! Would you group him amongst the rest of the weirdos that you’ve played, or is he different? He’s a little special because he is absurd at times and silly, but he still loves Dev a lot.
Less important love break up with would he come back home we have moral values as we do dating in rawalpindi half the time.
