    We’re doing a fun Q&A with the “Ted Lasso” folks on Tuesday and I’d like to share with them any great questions, comments or observations you have. Please share them with me here.

    Joining us will be Jason Sudeikis, Hannah Waddingham (she plays the hilariously bitchy boss Rebecca)

    Brendan Hunt (He plays the assistant coach Beard)

    Brett Goldstein (he plays the aging athlete Roy Kent)

    Whatcha think?

    I mentioned this one on a previous thread about this, but for Sudeikis, in the original advertisements featuring the character Ted Lasso, he’s much more of a stereotypically obnoxious, dumb American, contrasting with the incredibly nice, and much smarter than he seems character of the TV series. So I’d like to know when and how they realized that Ted woudk work better as this clever, all loving nice guy.

    I have a general question for all the gang, I wanna know if the show will do good with LGBT representation in the future.
    Trans athletes are always on a debate on which team they should play, the boys or the girls… Also about the gay folks, Football can be a very homophobic culture, we all know that, my question is if they plan to debate those topics in future seasons.

    For Your Emmy Consideration:
    Matthew Rhys for "Perry Mason" as Leading Actor in a Drama Series
    Ethan Hawke for "The Good Lord Bird" as Leading Actor in a Limited Series, THE GOOD LORD BIRD in ALL CATEGORIES.
    Elizabeth Olsen and Kathryn Hahn for "Wandavision" as Leading and Supporting actress in Limited Series
    Tobias Menzies for "The Crown" as Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
    MJ Rodriguez for "Pose" as Leading Actress in a Drama Series.

    I thought up some questions for the other interviewees.

    For Waddingham, her redemption arc throughout the first season was one of the show’s strongest elements. I want to know when she thinks the true start of Rebecca’s change started, and how she feels about continuing her fantastic performance now that her big arc (though I’m sure plenty will follow) has been resolved. And for a less character centric question, she got to show off her wonderful musical theatre talents during a karaoke session on the show. Perhaps one of the writers may be the ones to answer this instead, but was that moment always intended, or was it just created once a great singer just so happened to be cast in this role?

    For Brendan Hunt, his character Coach Beard is a consistent presence in the show, but in contrast to the very talkative Ted, Beard is often quiet. I wanted to know what it’s like being a major player who often has to standout in scenes without too much dialogue. Additionally, do I wanted to know if we might hear or see more of Ted and Beard’s past, such as how they met and became so close to each other.

    For Brett Goldstein, I’d like to know what it’s like filming these scenes as a star athlete (granted, an aging one). Is this physically demanding work, and did he have to do a decent amount of training to play the part? On that same topic, did he have a history of playing the sport before his involvement in the show? Also, for a question more about character than physicality, I’ve heard people say that his character Roy Kent is based on real life player Roy Keane. If this is true, did he study Keane at all to get any inspiration for portraying this type of person?

    Can you ask Hannah Waddingham if she will be campaigning as Lead or Supporting, as there is a case for both placements
