Ron Livingston is very well known for his past roles in films such as Office Space and Swingers as well as television shows including Band of Brothers and Boardwalk Empire. Recently, he has had roles in TV shows Loudermilk + A Million Little Things. In an interview with Variety, Ron Livingston had the chance to talk about both of these shows:

Loudermilk

Here is what Ron Livingston said about what he has learned about working on Loudermilk and how that has informed his work in Season 2 of this show:

Sometimes what happens is you do a character in Season 1 that has sharp edges and is kind of risky and angry and maybe people aren’t going to like him, and then if the show does well and you come back for Season 2, sometimes there’s a danger of sanding it all down. … I want to try to make sure he’s still the guy he is — there’s something about that that is not going to go away — but he’s been through some different stuff and how do you see the motion of somebody through some events without it all of a sudden not being the same guy?”

A Million Little Things

Ron Livingston had this to say when it came to what drew him to be a part of A Million Little Things and play the character of John in the show:

It just kind of fell in my lap that way — not only that I was doing both of those characters, which are, I think, polar opposites, but I was doing those characters at the same time. I was doing ‘Loudermilk’ Monday through Friday, and then I was going and doing John on Saturday.”

So that does kind of connect them a little bit because if I’ve got a sore back, both characters are going to have a sore back that week. But Sam Loudermilk is sort of the most grating person in the world with no friends and no desire for friends and always says the wrong thing, but underneath that is a kind of romantic that’s there.”

And John is different — John’s got it all together and he’s gregarious and everybody loves him and he loves everybody, but underneath that there just has to be an unexamined part of himself that he wasn’t willing to look at and that brought him to where he ultimately ended.”

And so they’re kind of kindred, and it’s fun to play those guys at the same time because they are kind of in line with each other.”
