“I personally very much support the writers strike, and I very much hope they get what they so absolutely deserve.” – Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Video: Washington Post Live)
“It’s the first time I’ve done an American accent on-screen, so I was very excited but a little nervous to do it… A lot of my favorite films are indie films from the 70s and 80s, New York, and so to make a contribution to that canon and to work with someone like Nicole [Holofcener] and to work with Julia, such queens of that filmmaking, was a real thrill.” – Tobias Menzies (Video: Washington Post Live)
“I do feel a sisterly bond with Nicole. We first met on ‘Enough Said,’ and I remember commenting to her after we had this lunch, we were talking about the script and the lunch went on for a long time. And I had this feeling like, how is it that our lives have not crossed until this moment? I feel a kinship with her.” – Julia Louis Dreyfus (Video: Washington Post Live)
