Chris Elliott on Eaglehart, His Crush on Hugh Grant, and Rob Lowe As Kennedy

15 November 2013 8:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chris Elliott has gotten to goof around for the last two seasons of his Adult Swim show Eagleheart (which returned at midnight last night), but the new season sees the show break from form, with Elliott's U.S. Marshal character on a mission to solve a deep-rooted conspiracy. This tears apart the show's previous fifteen-minute sketch structure and allows Elliott to stretch as an actor: For the first time on this show, he finds himself looking for his character's motivation. ("I sound like an obnoxious actor now!" he laughed. "But I was hesitant to call myself an actor before. I can now.") Elliott chatted with Vulture about drama, his assessments of Bill Murray and Rob Lowe, and his man crush on Hugh Grant.While I was on hold, instead of hold music, it was a news report about the Philippines, so my mind wandered away from comedy for a moment. »

Chris Elliott and Maria Thayer Compare Acting Techniques and Talk How 'Eagleheart' Has Gotten Even Deeper and Stranger In Its Third Season

15 November 2013 7:36 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

According to Chris Elliott and Maria Thayer, acting on "Eagleheart" is no cakewalk. Elliott has to constantly figure out if he's happy, sad or mad. Thayer's relationships with her co-stars apparently resemble the contentious interactions she shares with them on screen, as Elliott and fellow cast member Brett Gelman regularly give her shit. "It's a hard job," she insists. But all of that effort is worth it -- to viewers, at least: "Eagleheart" is one of the funniest shows on television, and as it embarks on its third season, which kicked off last night on Adult Swim, the show makes a transition from single-serving episodes to something more ambitious -- a season-long narrative which, according to Elliott, you could edit into a feature. Elliott and Thayer sat down with Indiewire earlier this week to discuss their work on the show from its earliest days until now, when it not only »

See a Trailer for Eagleheart’s Surreal Third Season

14 October 2013 9:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Watch out, bad guys and lovers of incredibly surreal comedy: Adult Swim's Eagleheart will be returning for its third season on November 14. Unlike the first two seasons' weird-ass-case-of-the-week formula, this season's ten episodes will tell one long serialized tale called "Paradise Rising." It's hard to describe based on this brand-new promo, but it seems to involve time travel, gunning down Martin Sheen, and Chris Monsanto hooking up with bearded deputy Brett (Brett Gelman). There's also ... well, better you just watch and try to make sense out of it yourself. But it certainly looks promisingly loopy in the best Get a Life tradition. »
