John Larroquette’s Interview
Billie, the editor for Time Out New York magazine sent us an article about John who also talks about Dan in his Interview. Here’s a snip it of the interview the rest you can read at the site.
What drew you to this particular Broadway play?
It was the first one offered to me, quite honestly. When I realized Boston Legal was going to be ending, I said to my, um, my peeps, “Let’s not pursue another television series right away. I’d like to go to New York and meet some people and see if that’s a possibility in my life. I’m not getting any younger.” Then the Off Broadway show was offered, and [I thought] Off Broadway would be a good way to bust half my hymen with New York. So I did that and then went back to L.A. and kept saying no to bad television series. Then, all of a sudden, the call came and said they’re going to do this show with Daniel Radcliffe, and I immediately said yes.
Because of D-Rad?
Partially because of that. I love cute young men, [Laughs] and I was infatuated with the play. As a child I remember seeing it. I love [original leading man] Robert Morse, and my wife and I happened to be in New York during the last revival with Matthew Broderick and saw that. And I thought, with Dan, this was going to have some run. My sister-in-law and my niece saw him in Equus in London, and they said he was very good.
