Watch Emmy contenders talk 'Scandal,' 'Walking Dead' and more

Did you know that "Scandal's" Kerry Washington fully endorses an Olivia Pope clothing line? Or that Jeff Daniels' "Newsroom" anchor will become obsessed with Twitter this season? (Hold on while we tweet that.) Or that "Elementary's" Lucy Liu is obsessed with the idea of Twitter, even though she still hasn't (as of this writing) come down from the mountain with her first official tweet?

In the past few weeks, we've been enjoying live chats with Emmy contenders — we have one with "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris Wednesday at 1 p.m. PST.

We ask questions — including many from readers — about their work on their hit shows as well as a variety of other subjects, like, say, "Walking Dead" star David Morrissey's recent trip to Graceland. (Souvenirs were purchased, though capes and giant belt buckles were not among the items he's declaring.)

You can listen to highlights from these conversations — or settle in for the whole magilla — by visiting the gallery page here. We'll be updating this gallery regularly, adding more chats and vignettes with others who stopped by to talk.

What's that? You want names? Well, "Orphan Black" star Tatiana Maslany joined us and detailed the ins and outs of playing all those clones on her BBC America series. Matthew Rhys of FX's "The Americans" explained the concept of "honey trapping," which, yes, has something to do with (birds and) bees and sex. And speaking of that natural, zesty enterprise, Corey Stoll from "House of Cards" dropped by our studio and laid out how going shirtless throughout the season improved his daily workout routine immeasurably.


And, yes, there's more. Much more. Holly Hunter talking about working with Jane Campion again in the Sundance Channel miniseries "Top of the Lake." Laura Dern encouraging initiative and a Kickstarter campaign for her late, great HBO comedy "Enlightened." Jenna Fischer musing on what comes next after nine seasons of playing Pam on "The Office." (And, yes, she graced us with one final "Dunder Mifflin, this is Pam" greeting.)

So lend us your ears and we'll provide the dish. But not the coffee ... though "Girls' " Alex Karpovsky might have something to say about that. Enjoy!
