David Schwimmer Talks Beast With Reuters; Nylon‘s Lorenza Izzo Q&A

This week, David Schwimmer discusses Feed the Beast with Reuters, while Nylon conducts a Q&A with Lorenza Izzo. Plus, Bon Appétit takes a look at how the show created a restaurant. Read on for more:

• Speaking to Reuters about Feed the Beast and his character, David Schwimmer explains, “The food represents life, like a life force, and the whole premise of the show, at least the first season, is pulling Tommy out of this stagnant lifeless state he’s in.”

Nylon profiles Lorenza Izzo and describes her Feed the Beast character, Pilar, as “a quirky hopeless romantic.”

Bon Appétit asks, “How did Feed the Beast build an uncannily lifelike fictional restaurant from the ground up? And how did the actors learn to fake restaurant life so well?”

• “Family, fatherhood, friendship, faith and food” is Clyde Phillips’ description of Feed the Beast, according to the Boston Herald.

• David Schwimmer tells Salon that he believes Feed the Beast‘s writers are “consciously doing a really nice job of trying to make the show more reflective of the city. Of New York.”

• Interviewed by The Huffington Post, David Schwimmer says Feed the Beast‘s mix of dark comedy, violent crime and food was “so cool, and I thought, ‘Wow, if we can pull this off, it’ll be special.’ I was up to the challenge of that.”
