On Til Death, Eddie Kaye Thomas plays a newlywed quickly discovering the perils of marriage. It doesnt help that his neighbors are bitterly resigned to their 20 years of routine. With new episodes resuming this month, including a garage band and a sex dream, Eddie Kaye Thomas shared laughs on the set.
Are you tired?
Do I look that tired?
Well, youre sitting down after working really hard.
We work like three hours a day. I was up watching Tivo. Im not going to advertise the other shows.
What are your days like?
We basically work one day a week. Its really disgusting, because theres people who really work on television. All the one-camera shows, they work like 15 hour days. We get here at like 10 oclock on Monday, were done by 1. Tuesday is like 9 to 1:30. Today we started at nine and we were finished at 2 but we had an hour of nothing to do. Tomorrow well be kind of busy and Friday well work from like 11 to eight oclock at night.
What do you do with all the free time?
I have no life. I dont really do much. My girlfriends gone, Im very lonely. I just try to keep moving, keep breathing.
How old are you?
Im going to be 26 next week.
Are you in a serious relationship?
I think its serious. I hope she does too. As far as I know its serious.
Does seeing the older couple make you cringe in horror?
Im terrified I might one day turn into Brad Garrett. Its an absolutely horrific thought. But from the shows point of view, behind all the craziness, theres a great love that they have for each other. Thats exciting. I hope people get that from the show. That theyre still together, they love each other.
Does it make you in real life
Oh, Im absolutely terrified of it, 100,000 percent but I hate loneliness, so. But its a real light show called Til Death. Just enjoy yourself and watch.
How will you celebrate your birthday?
I was lucky enough to be born on Halloween so Ill be in New York City. Ill go to the parade and I want to dress up as Kermit the Frog, but its really hard to find an adult Kermit the Frog. Theyre all kids costumes and I dont understand why they wouldnt make an adult size Kermit the Frog. So were working on that.
How is working on this show versus other TV projects?
Its a very different experience. I did a sitcom for about a season and a half that absolutely no one watched. It was called Off Centre on the WB and it was actually a great show I thought. It was very well written. But it was all very young. Everyone was early 20s. It was myself and John Cho and this guy Sean Maguire whos on The Class now. It was just a much different vibe and to be honest with you, its just great to have Garrett there to when all else fails, look at that gigantic freak. Hell make you laugh.
