VIDEO: Laurie Metcalf Says HILLARY AND CLINTON is Very Much a Marriage Play
During the interview, Metcalf tells Colbert that "I am a Hillary Clinton who lives on a Planet Earth slightly different from this one."
She goes on to explain that she and co-star John Lithgow don't impersonate Hillary And Bill, "I'm not in a pantsuit, and he doesn't have the accent. So that frees us up to do our own interpretations of this couple." Metcalf continues, "It's very much a marriage play."
Watch the interview below!
Behind closed doors in the state of New Hampshire during the early days of 2008, a former First Lady named Hillary (Metcalf) is in a desperate bid to save her troubled campaign for President of the United States. Her husband, Bill (Lithgow), sees things one way; her campaign manager, Mark, sees things another. If any of this sounds familiar, don't be fooled; in a universe of infinite possibilities, anything that can happen, will.
The show will play a limited engagement through July 21, 2019.
