I recently had the chance to speak with actress Krysten Ritter about her fantastic new indie Killing Bono, which hits theaters November 4. I also had to ask Krysten Ritter about her upcoming ABC series Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23, which premieres midseason. When it was originally picked up, the title was changed to just Apartment 23. I asked Krysten Ritter about the title change, which she was definitely in favor of, although she isn't sure how they will actually pronounce it.
"I think they're going to scratch it out. I think Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23 is what it going to say. I'm just going to say 'bitch' and let everyone else worry about it (Laughs). Yeah, it's really fun. It's the tightest writing I've ever seen, doing a comedy. The writing is tight, every episode is just jam-packed. Every script I get, my jaw just hits the floor. I can't believe the stuff they're getting away with. It's really, really exciting. I feel so blessed to have a character to play. It's not like I'm playing myself, or a caricature... maybe it's a caricature, but not in a bad way. It's a person that has a lot going on, and she has such a strong point of view. It's just an actor's dream."
There was also a recent report that actors Dean Cain and Kevin Sorbo will be guest starring as themselves, which falls in line with series regular James Van Der Beek, who plays himself. Here's what Krysten Ritter had to say about the new guest stars.
"I don't know. James plays my character's best friend, and that's obviously staying. The Kevin Sorbo thing, he shows up in a scene, and it's part of one of my scams. Every episode I'm doing something awful and ridiculous. I sort of bring him along to show everybody up, so it's used in a funny way. Like, 'What's he doing here?' Like that kind of thing. I don't know what they're going to do, as far as having a toe in reality and trying to cross things over like that. The writing is so amazing, I'm just like, 'You guys just go do your thing, and I'm not going to worry about it.'
