On HBO’s Enlightened, Amy (Laura Dern) is falling hard for Dermot Mulroney’s Jeff, the cocky L.A. Times journalist who is helping her expose the corporate misdeeds going on at Abaddon. He is the professional whistleblower she hopes to become; she has a wide-eyed determination he admires. Vulture got ahold of Mulroney to talk about his turn on the show, what it was like to play Russell — and True American! — on New Girl, and his upcoming Julia Roberts reunion. Tell me how you found yourself on Enlightened. I, uh, imposed myself — that’s probably the best word — on Mike White at a party, believe it or not. Because I had seen the first season and I was loving it. Loved Laura, knew I was watching an actor in top form. Six weeks later, he’s offering me a part, so it worked out great. How did you impose? »
