Henry Winkler recalls auditioning for Barry, and making Bill Hader laugh
"When I went in, I waited in those metal chairs like at the very beginning of my career," he recalls in a Hollywood Reporter article. "Eventually, they called me in. I made Hader laugh. And I thought, 'No matter what happens, I have made this man — a man who I have watched all these years speak in nonsensical Italian and play Stefon on Saturday Night Live — laugh.' I got in my car and I drove home. And waited, as you always do. It is an awfully long wait."

Killing Eve and Barry make us care deeply about assassins
"Both Barry and Killing Eve make us fascinated by, and even feel compassion for, contract killers in a way that is often more heartbreaking than titillating," says Allison Keene of the respected BBC America and HBO series. "Both series completely subvert our expectations about who these characters are and what they ultimately want. They’re fascinating not because they are killers, but because of who they are outside of that, which is purposefully well-defined. We’re meant to get drawn in, shocked, and then drawn in again in increasingly emotional ways." ALSO: Henry Winkler beat out John Lithgow for Barry role.
