I thought it was important to share this interview as I don't think we have ever seen tracy and cleavant together. After 28 years, this is historic. Cleavant's energy as a person comes through. No wonder he was always the heartbeat of the series. Tracy's story about john and the stunts was hilarious. Tracy told it was well.
You can see why the formula of Tracy, Weiss, and our four main characters worked. If tracy had been able to do more black comedy, the series would have even proven to be *more* ahead of its time than it already was.
Series like Black Mirror would later do some of this.
Say what you want about tracy but he is always interesting and its reflected in his work.
He'd never be a studio boss but I think if he was allowed to do more of his vision, he would find plenty of an audience for it.
Cleavant -- the man is magical. It is too bad to hear about his brother. It sounds like a rough thing for them to have to go through. I am not sure how many brothers he has but I assumed it was his twin.
