Q: How will you celebrate?
A: The whole cast is here, which is phenomenal. That is the truest joy of having the show nominated. We'll go to the Governors Ball. There's all those after-parties. I'm not much of an after-party [guy]. It's more of an afterthought. I prefer to read in bed. That's because I'm 100.
Q: When they're saying name of nominees and yours is called...
A: The closest thing I can compare it to is that feeling you have when you narrowly miss getting in a car accident. The adrenaline that drives up is so severe. The moment leading up to it is so heart-pounding. It's the other reason I like to go to sleep as soon as possible.
