After Hale accepted his 2013 Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor on Veep (2012), he stood on stage behind co-star Julia Louis-Dreyfus as she accepted her own award and pretended to feed her lines (just as he does on the show, in which he played her groveling assistant).
[on his favorite TV program] 'The Carol Burnett Show'. I watched it over and over. Tim Conway is a huge icon for me. He just had this ability - he trusted the material and he trusted the situation and he never pushed the comedy. I just loved watching him. He could just move his eyes a little bit and it would just make you laugh immediately.
