Bossa nova babies, we’re back. This week we are joined by the incomparable Michael Hyatt. You Might Know Her From Snowfall, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, True Detective, The Little Things, Ray Donovan, Nightcrawler, The West Wing, and The Wire. Michael (in her most elegant-sounding voice) talked to us about playing Cissy Saint on the late great John Singleton's sleeper hit Snowfall, the difficulties of approaching True Detective without a script, being part of television history with The Wire, brushing off her musical theatre chops as Dr. Akopian and her sweater dresses, and why she doesn’t need to be Method with her approach to the work. All this and Mary Hart. Mary HART. MARY HART. I love you John.
