One thing I am now thinking is that Tony Hale and Jeffrey Tambor should play father and son in something funny.

But beyond that, they join Jerrod Carmichael, Anthony Anderson, Rob Lowe, Aziz Ansari and Keegan-Michael Key in an entertaining most-embarrassing-moments roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter.

Tambor touches on the unfunny responsibility that comes with his starring role on the (you must watch if you haven't already) Transparent:

I'm a cisgender male actor assaying this role, so it's a great privilege and a huge responsibility that even in the third season just keeps tapping at me... My motto is do it right. It weighs on me. It really weighs on me ... I'm having these conversations in life, people are coming up to me, and I remember a gentleman coming up to me on the plane, and he was all Zegna'd and cufflinked and coiffed and shoed and everything like that and he [wagged his finger at me], and I went, “Here it comes, here it comes.” ... He put his hand in mine and he said: “You. Thank you for introducing me to a subject I had no knowledge of.” And I went, “Well, there's the revolution.” And I've had the other conversation, where I say, “You can't say that word, you can't talk like that.”
