Hamish Linklater was on the Leonard Lopate Show recently, along with his co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. They play identical twins in the Shakespeare in the Park production of "Comedy of Errors." Hamish also told us what he's listening to and what he's a fan of. Let's just say he's a very supportive colleague.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Hamish Linklater discuss playing Dromio and Antipholus in “The Comedy of Errors,” one of this summer’s Shakespeare in the Park productions. The play concerns two sets of identical twins who were separated as children and now live as master-servant pairs in rival neighboring cities. It’s an enjoyable mess of mistaken identity, wrongful imprisonment, questionable flirting, and general mayhem. It’s playing at The Public’s Delacorte Theater in Central Park through June 30.
Lily Rabe, Hamish Linklater, and Alan Rickman discuss “Seminar,” a new comedy by Peabody Award winner Theresa Rebeck. In the play, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with an international literary figure. Under his brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder. It’s playing at The Golden Theatre.
Hamish Linklater's favorite comfort foods are Hot Wings & Martinis! Find out what else he told us after his recent appearance on The Leonard Lopate Show.
