Yesterday was rehearsal day – three camera shows rehearse and light for the first part of the week, and shoot Fridays in front of a live audience.
One of the guys has his grandma in town from the midwest, and he brought her to the set yesterday – just so she could see what a TV set looks like.
The scene being rehearsed yesterday was one in which the lead actor repeatedly uses the word “cunt”. I think he said it at least 30 times, as they kept running that scene over and over.
Did I mention that his grandma is the religious type?
He said he warned her that it was an HBO sitcom, so there might be some bad language, but still – of all the scenes they could have been running they chose the ‘cunt’ scene.
Grandma left pretty quickly.
