Our Hour Long Chat With
Ain't That a Kick in The Head:
Eden Sher: Another surreal thing of being on a show for five years is making a deal with one of the other cast members that if we reach season five in January, he will be able to kick me in the head.
The Original Auditions:
Sean Daily: Listen, as long as we're in the way back machine, can we talk about your auditions, when you first came to read for the show, and what do you remember about that?
Noel Manning: One of the things that I've really enjoyed tremendously is the aspect of the writing, but also the aspect of the characters and how unique the characters are. I think it's rare for a show to be able to nail that on both ends and I think The Middle has definitely done that.
Kelly Schremph: The show has had some great guest stars on as well, Whoopi Goldberg, Betty White. Who were you most star struck to work with?
JJGhatt: The question to you guys is, syndication is great for several reasons because it means you're being introduced to a whole new category of people in the future even after the show is done, you guys are gone onto other projects. But another down part of syndication is with shows like The Brady Brunch and Different Strokes in the '70s, is that some of the child actors from those shows feel like they get pigeonholed into certain characters or roles and they find it difficult transitioning. Of course, others don't. So do you have any fears or what are your feelings about that regarding syndication and the outcomes of what it could mean for the future?
