ELIZABETH, N.J., Sept. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Does the ensemble cast of the sitcom VEEP—which racked up five Emmys last Sunday—rank among the finest in history?
Its fans certainly think so. In the Fall 2017 issue of EDGE, Reid Scott—who plays D.C. insider Dan Egan opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus—talks about the process that makes the show unique among television comedies.
"The writers write very well thought-out, tight scripts…but because we've been inhabiting these people so long, they really trust us and encourage us to fill in the blanks," Scott says. "Then, the day we are shooting, they say, 'Take the leash off and do what you guys do!'"
Scott, who has worked on previous TV series with Jim Gaffigan and Laura Linney, is currently co-starring with Reese Witherspoon in the rom-com Home Again.
EDGE's Fall issue embraces myriad themes around the idea of "Home." Features explore new research on homework, the Empty Nest syndrome, the ultimate home toolbox, and a "Where are they now?" retrospective on Home Alone—which includes an extensive Q&A with actor John Heard shortly before he passed away in July.
Heard revealed that he and Katherine O'Hara were instructed to "play it straight" in the over-the-top comedy by director Chris Columbus. The story also catches up with Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern.
For New Jersey foodies, nine local chefs weigh in on their signature dishes and Andy Clurfeld offers up the first major review of the beloved Cranford restaurant A Toute Heure since its new owners took over.
The popular Healthy Edge section of the magazine looks at the negative effects of "screen time" on toddlers, the surprising benefits of cycling to work, and how a multimillion-dollar renovation sliced ER waiting room times by a jaw-dropping two-thirds at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.
