Recently Gillian said, 'I feel like this is our George Bailey moment. Except that we won't be going to jail if we don't hit our goal. But the gratitude that George feels as his cousin is tallying up everyone's money is just about exactly how I feel.'

And let's be honest, Gillian's reactions are just as funny as the jokes themselves. Check out some of these videos below.

In Season One of THE RESIDUALS, BroadwayWorld's newest webseries partnership, casting director Mark Lyell (SUBMISSIONS ONLY's Mark Gessner) might have come off as a little abrassive, and perhaps bi-polar. However, as the gang preps for Season Two, he is out to prove that he does in fact have a heart, and some other vital organs as well.

Jenna Leigh Green has quite a history with witches. First she played the best friend of one on SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH, then she played one's sister, before taking over as one, in WICKED. Now Green is set to guest star on Season 2 of THE RESIDUALS, BroadwayWorld's newest webseries collaboration. And while she won't be playing a witch, she will be playing a character who could be described by a word that rhymes with 'witch.'

When I first sat down to write Season Two of 'The Residuals,' the first question I had for myself was about the 'big picture.' Do we make this season about a big overall storyline, or do we abide by Larry David's 'Seinfeld' rule of, 'No hugging, no learning'?

I didn't get into this business to be the first actor, or the only actor. I'm pretty sure some Greek person locked that up a few thousand years ago. So why, after not a whole helluva lot of years out of college, did I greet news of my friends' and acquaintances' successes with little more than fear and self-consciousness? Furthermore: why did I even greet news of their failures and setbacks (real talk, now) with some sub-level of relief? Why don't we like each other's work more often? Why is it easier to watch a stranger's work than someone we know? Why; for that matter, do some of the greatest actors this world has to offer get crapped on via the anonymous internet every day? BWW---I submit to you now---that the response to those questions, and to your impulses to do the same, is that it shouldn't be that way, and it doesn't have to be.
