Hollywood Game Night - Darren, Jenna and Mario Discuss Game Night Strategies (Interview)
200 Day Hiatus Challenge Day 9: Which Cast Member would you Like to Meet?
When I think of this question, I always try to envision the context I would like to meet my faves - Chris or Darren - in so as to create an organic and comfortable experience that doesn’t include camera. For each of them, I have a scenario in my head that would be my dream ‘meeting’ (I’ve met Darren on Listen Up - I loved my 15 seconds with him and his jubilant, kind, warmth - but when I think of this question, I think of how to have conversation/real connection):
1. My dream meeting with Darren - I would invite Darren and Mia to my Passover Seder.
[I would definitely invite them together because they’re long time partners and that’s what people do for real social interactions (as opposed to fan interviews - and this is my fantasy so I’m gonna make it real) - and Mia is ethnically Jewish and at one point was looking for a seder].
The seder tells a freedom story, involves children and drama and lots of music and singing around a table with family and friends late into the night. I have always felt a political similarity to Darren and I imagine we would have moved in the same political circles had we attended university at the same time. The seder is an open, interesting, political, musical night of connection. They would be my dream guests. (Along with Eliyahu of course - little joke for all the yids out there).
2. My dream meeting with Chris - I would invite Chris and Will for a game night of Balderdash and Apples to Apples (I would be way too scared to try Trivial Pursuit against that Colfer encyclopedia brain).
[same reason as above for inviting Will].
I actually love nothing more than a night at home with a small group of friends with yummy appetizers, and fun drinks and silly games. I imagine Chris would be the star of the show, be at ease because not being asked awkward questions, and would for sure kill us all at Balderdash.
I would happily take either of these dreams.
