It’s so much fun, as we can see everyday, to shame and humiliate people who you disagree with politically, but it does not get anything done.

I’ve been working on a portrait series of characters from The West Wing, all done in Mischief software on my Wacom Cintiq Companion 2.  There will be a few more before I’m done, and I’m going to work on some kind of poster with them all in it.

  • Dulé Hill: There were times when the giggles would just happen, especially in the Oval Office. You would just get delirious. They were always long days. It was a beautiful set, and it looked lovely, but when you have five or six people in the Oval Office, and you gotta keep covering… It became a long day. Hence where I started to come up with my trick.
  • Josh Malina: I was wondering if we were going to get to this! I know exactly where you’re going.
  • Dulé Hill: I always knew exactly how to position myself, if I only had one or two lines, I would guarantee you, in the blocking, I was going to find a way to be in a shot by myself away from everybody else. So by the time we’d do the master, I’d be like, “Uh, excuse me? All I gotta say is, ‘Yes, Mr. President.’ and ‘Thank you, Mr. President.’ So can we just do this pop on me real quick?” Then I would be out!
  • Josh Malina: Unbelievable! I remember I’d be there for the last four hours going, “Where the hell is Dulé? I can’t believe he’s home already.” This is the evolution of an actor: from “Praise the lord! Thank you for this job!” to “I think I know a way to get out four hours early.”
  • Dulé Hill: It’s called The Dulé Hill School of Acting.
