She looks familiar, right? She should. The 27-year-old actress Lizzy Caplan has been in everything from Mean Girls to Cloverfield to Hot Tub Time Machine—but let's be honest, you probably remember her best from those scenes (you know, the ude-nay ones) in the first season of True Blood. This month, she comes back in the new season of Party Down, the criminally underrated (and hilarious) Starz! show about aspiring actors-turned-cater-waiters in Los Angeles. Girl's got a dirty mouth, plus she's funny as hell. And did we mention she enjoys watching sex tapes? Party down, indeed.
So, about Hot Tub Time Machine...you know you can catch infections in there, right? Hot tubs, I mean, not time machines.Lizzy Caplan:
Fewer of those on Party Down, probably. As far as the catering uniform goes, was there any doubt you'd look good in a bow tie?Lizzy Caplan:Party Down
Yet somehow you pull it off. You worked briefly as a caterer in real life—ever do anything bad to the food?Lizzy Caplan:
You're either disgusting or the sexiest woman we've ever met. While we decide, what's your take on this whole sexting craze?Lizzy Caplan:
What about sex tapes?Lizzy Caplan:really
What about them do you find fascinating?Lizzy Caplan:craaaaaaazy
Obviously you've seen Screech's.Lizzy Caplan:
