JL: Oh so many, mainly not getting my sitcom with Tony Shaloub and Santino Fontana off the ground

JL: Wedding Crashers. Why? How many weddings have you crashed and infiltrated a family dynamic only to find the love of your life? Exactly
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
