Ron Livingston On Why the ‘Game of Thrones’ Red Wedding Is TV’s Best Episode Ever — Turn It On Podcast
Ron Livingston didn’t plan it this way, but the actor pulled off a rare feat this fall: He can be seen in a cable, broadcast, and streaming series all at the same time. Livingston, perhaps still best known as the star of Mike Judge’s cult hit comedy “Office Space,” stars in the At&T Audience Network comedy “Loudermilk,” plus plays a pivotal role on ABC’s new drama “A Million Little Things.” And he can also be seen on an upcoming episode (“Bright and High Circle”) of Amazon Prime Video’s new anthology series from Matthew Weiner, “The Romanoffs.”

“I’ve got to diversify,” he quipped. “You’ve got to make sure you’re on something somewhere. I’ve just tried to do stuff that’s good. Definitely there’s more opportunity than ever.”

The changing TV landscape has allowed stars like Livingston the chance to juggle multiple projects.

Ron Livingston on Tackling Sobriety and Suicide on TV
Ron Livingston is having a moment.

The actor known for such films as “Office Space,” and TV series as “Sex and the City,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Search Party,” is starring in three high-profile small-screen projects this fall: “A Million Little Things,” which bows Sept. 26 on ABC; the second season of “Loudermilk,” which hits Oct. 16 on At&T Audience Network; and “The Romanoffs” episode titled “Bright and High Circle,” which streams Nov. 2 on Amazon.

“The way that I pick stuff, it’s not very cerebral. It’s not like, ‘I would like to play a senator who …’ It’s more like, I read it, I get a gut feeling from it, and if it affects me — and honestly my favorite thing is if it kind of scares the hell out of me a little bit, then I pick that,” Livingston tells Variety.

But he admits that there is some connective tissue between

We’re getting the first extended look at Season 2 of At&T Audience Network’s hit comedy series Loudermilk.

After a relapse in New Orleans and a falling out with his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is back in Seattle trying to piece his world back together. With his “Sober Friends” meeting hijacked, a messy new relationship, and a stumbling start back into writing, Loudermilk is forced to do a little soul searching (which he hates) and decide what he wants from life. While he still has the ability to help those around him, Loudermilk just may find that the person who needs the most work is himself.

Loudermilk is created and executive produced by Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort. Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly will each direct episodes of season two. Bobby Farrelly, Mark Burg, Bart Peters, and Shane Elrod also serve as executive producers.

Interview with Loudermilk’s secret weapon: Brian Regan

At&T Audience Network’s excellent comedy Loudermilk boasts many great actors, but when comedian Brian Regan’s character Mugsy was introduced he stole the show. Under the guidance of recovering alcoholic Loudermilk (Ron Livingston — read our interview with him here), Regan’s character is a remorseful dad, and part of Loudermilk’s motley crew of recovery regulars who meet up for circle time and help each other stay clean and sober. But when Mugsy reveals his daughter Latte was estranged for eight years, that sends Loudermilk into action. Regan is an all-time great stand up, never relying on a cheap laugh, insult-driven set...read more

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “Mr. Robot” Season 3, Episode 2, “eps3.1_undo.gz” follow.]

Booting Up

In an immediately classic opening montage, Elliot embraces his new job at Evil Corp, doing his best to blend into the corporate scene… while still using his hacker superpowers to try to prevent Stage 2 and along the way dish out his own brand of justice against the corruption within the company. But being normal isn’t easy for anyone, especially as he becomes aware that Mr. Robot isn’t gone — he’s just losing control of the moments when that aspect of himself arises.

Whiterose continues to lurk in the shadows, planning for Stage 2 — which will now coincide with a United Nations vote on annexing the Congo, though Phillip Price has his own political conditions. Meanwhile, Joanna Wellick’s plan to clear Tyrell’s name seems to work. Too bad that immediately afterward, her now-former lover Derek confronts her and her driver on the street, and she dies

The hilarious new Audience Network comedy series Loudermilk centers on Sam Loudermilk (Ron Livingston), a recovering alcoholic and substance abuse counselor with a bad attitude about everything, including helping people.

‘Loudermilk’ Review: Peter Farrelly Comedy About Recovering Alcoholic Gets by with a Lot of Help From His Friends

‘Loudermilk’ Review: Peter Farrelly Comedy About Recovering Alcoholic Gets by with a Lot of Help From His Friends
Credit “Loudermilk,” the recent Audience Network comedy from co-creators Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort, for not being set in New York or Los Angeles. Following the day-to-day exploits of recovering alcoholic and former music critic Sam Loudermilk, the show makes its home in the damp climes of Seattle. As Sam navigates his way through recovery, helping those in his support group do the same, there’s a similar unorthodox way to how our antihero motivates the people around him.

In true big-city form, the opening episode of “Loudermilk” finds Sam hooked on new object of affection Allison (Laura Mennell), palling around with roommate Ben (Will Sasso), and tasked with helping out recovering addict and audience surrogate Claire (Anja Savcic).

The show’s at its best when it uses that same spirit of curiosity to learn more about what makes these characters work. Often, it sidelines that more interesting show in

Exclusive interview: Ron Livingston of Loudermilk on being a ‘miserable cuss’ and Weinstein scandal

Ron Livingston plays Sam Loudermilk, the abrasive recovering alcoholic/former music critic in the new Audience series Loudermilk on DirecTV. The new comedy is a slow, sweet curveball that builds into a rare TV home-run. Livingston’s character is a former rock journalist and recovering alcoholic who now spends his time as a substance abuse counselor, holding group meetings usually at a local Catholic church. That is, when the priest isn’t booting him out for some offense. Like the setting of Seattle [really Vancouver], the grunge-y Sam is rumpled, pure sarcasm and a shot of salt in the wound. He’s hurting, and...read more

Peter Farrelly on Quitting ‘Project Greenlight’: It Was Becoming ‘A ‘Housewives’ Type Show’
Nearly everyone who was involved with the fourth season of “Project Greenlight” might be best classified as a survivor. Amongst their number was Peter Farrelly, who served as a mentor for the first few episodes of the series before quitting somewhat abruptly.

As documented in the reality series, which chronicled the making of a low-budget HBO feature, Farrelly butted heads with producer Effie Brown during pre-production before backing away from the drama of being on a reality show. “I can see that Effie wants drama and I don’t want to engage with it,” he said at the end of the third episode, “Gun to Your Head.”

It’s safe to say that Peter Farrelly does not relish his time on HBO’s “Project Greenlight.” The “Dumb and Dumber” director took part in a panel for his new Audience Network comedy “Loudermilk” at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour on Tuesday, where he was asked about his stint on “Project Greenlight.” He was an adviser for aspiring directors on Season 4 of the competition show in 2015 but quit midway through after experiencing friction with producer Effie Brown. “I was disappointed that it turned out like that because I was really looking forward to doing it, and I really.
