The Cast of BARRY Reunites to Share Audition Stories, Talk About the Filming Process and More on STARS IN THE HOUSE

The Actors Fund has teamed with SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and his husband, producer James Wesley, to produce a daily mini-online show, entitled Stars in The House, featuring stars of stage and screen singing and performing live (from home!) on social media to promote support for The Fund's services for those most vulnerable to the effects of the virus.

Stars in The House continued last night (8pm) for a TV Reunion of BARRY with Henry Winkler, D'Arcy Carden, Sarah Goldberg, Stephen Root, and Anthony Carrigan!

The cast shared how excited they were to see each other.

Henry Winkler said:

"You know what is so great about this, is that we haven't seen each other since the 18th of March."

Sarah Goldberg shared:

"We had a table read... and then we were sent home and that was it. Our chain has been very active. We've been sending lots of jokes and videos, but you've given us a reason to wash, and a reason to see each other, so thank you!"

D'Arcy Carden joked, "It was so nice to have to brush my hair!"

The cast shared how they got their roles on the show and more!

Sara said,

"Well, I auditioned multiple times. And I met Henry Winkler at my audition, which was a very special experience... It was my second audition, and I was really nervous, and I was meeting Bill [Hader] and he asked me beforehand if I was comfortable improvising, which, I was not. So I was extra nervous. And there was this girl going in ahead of me and she was pacing back and forth so she was making me more nervous, and I thought, 'Okay, I've got to hide.' So I ducked into the stairwell and started rehearsing my sides in the hall. And then I just felt the presence of greatness come by me, and Henry walks down the stairs and he pivoted and did a 180, and he stuck his hand out and said, 'Hi, I'm Henry.' And I was like, 'Hi, I'm hallucinating... Is this what happens when you go to LA, The Fonz is just here?'"
