Posted in 24, Yvonne Strahovski

Yvonne Strahovski just had the best night ever. The “Chuck” alum was in the return of two of the most buzzed-about, critically-acclaimed shows on TV, Fox’s “24: Live Another Day” and FX’s “Louie.”

“Thank god they’re not actually happening at the same time, because then I’d have to pick,” Strahovski joked to Yahoo TV, noting that while “24” is probably more in her wheelhouse, she was excited to stretch her comedy chops on Louis C.K.’s show. “It was a lot of fun — we had a blast,” she said with a laugh.

Keep reading for more about working with Louie, going to some really weird places, and that totally unexpected punch.

The “Louie” guest spot made me so happy. How did all of this come about?
It was a big, fat surprise — they called and said, “We’d love you to do the episode,” and I quickly agreed because it’s fabulous. I haven’t even seen the episode, so I’m very excited to see how it turned out and how it ended up being.

No audition?
No, the casting director had actually seen a Broadway play that I was in last year, “Golden Boy,” so she thought of me from that, and they called me and that was it.

Did you have any idea that you’d be this crazy, beautiful woman luring Louie back to her house?
They sent me the script, and I loved it — it was definitely something that I really wanted to do because I often get caught up in more of the dramatic stuff, especially lately. And I love doing that stuff, but this was really nice to do something that’s completely different than anything else.

I’ve been bursting to talk about it, but it’s been such a secret this whole time. I did it last year, and it was a big, sneaky trip to New York to do it, and I’m really excited now that I can finally talk about it.

And talk about all the weird places it goes — it gets weird real fast.
Oh yeah… but is it like “you can’t watch” weird? Or like good weird? [Laughs.]

[Laughs.] No, it’s very good weird! Seeing you get punched in the face was kind of delightfully deranged, and very unexpected.
[Laughs.] Well, good, I’m glad.

Any chance we could see her again?
Oh! I don’t know… you never know… [Laughs.] I would love to come back if they would have me.

It’s funny to me that you’ve got “24,” which is obviously action, but then you end up doing stunts on “Louie” — what was the process like to get that punch perfect?
[Laughs.] The punch! It was funny — it took a lot of massaging to get it right because of the camera angle and the weirdness and everything. I remember Louie was saying to me to do something after the punch — he was telling me to lie there and pull a certain face, post-punch, and I remember feeling very awkward while I was doing it. And he was like, “No, no, no — it’s gonna be weird! It’s gonna be good!” [Laughs.] [ Read More ]
