TV Junkie: Our Video Interviews from NBC's Golden Globes After-Party
NBC invited us to their 2011 Golden Globes after-party where we had the chance to speak with (in order of appearance in the above video): Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Robert Kirkman, and Jeryl Prescott from AMC's "The Walking Dead"; E!'s "Chelsea Lately" comics Loni Love and Ross Matthews; Leslie David Baker, Kate Flannery, Zach Woods, and Ellie Kemper from NBC's "The Office"; Stuart Blumberg, co-writer of "The Kids Are All Right"; and Anne Dudeck and Christopher Gorham from USA's "Covert Affairs".
NBC held the party on the top floor of the Beverly Hilton parking lot while helicopters swooped low over the venue. Plenty of film stars also went to the party including Robert DeNiro and Annette Bening but not many deigned to talk to the media. We were perfectly happy talking to some of our favorite TV people, particularly the casts of AMC's "The Walking Dead" and NBC's "The Office," such incredibly nice people, and we must admit we're still smitten by Sarah Wayne Callies who was very kind to remember our interview from a few months back, along with "Walking Dead" co-star Jon Bernthal.
Our photo gallery from the event was posted the other day, be sure to check it out.
Special Note: Greg Fitzsimmons, whom we interviewed last month, will be performing on "Lopez Tonight" on TBS at 12:00am tonight.
