Sullivan & Son’s Steve Byrne on Leaving Stand-Up, Cheers Comparisons and Oasis

Steve Byrne

Despite the fact that they work on the set of a (fake) bar, the cast of TBS' new comedy, Sullivan & Son know to keep things professional. But after closing time, all bets are off. Especially if Oasis' "Don't Look Back in Anger" comes on the jukebox.

"We did this DJ junket last weekend, and we all met at this restaurant. I asked the DJ to play it, and myself and the rest of the cast stood around this fountain and sang that song. [Co-star] Owen Benjamin ended up jumping into the fountain and splashing everybody," co-creator, executive producer and star Steve Byrne tells "That's when the booze was kicking in."

Psych’s James Roday and Dulé Hill Perfect the Buddy Act

James Roday, Dule Hill

Psych's resident fake psychic, Shawn Spencer (James Roday), may not really be able to read minds. But after four years, five seasons and 72 episodes, Roday and his on-screen partner-in-crime, Dulé Hill, have developed some very telekinetic capabilities."We're always thinking the same thing, but then he always says his out loud and then I don't have to, which is awesome," Roday says. As the duo prepares for the second half of Season 5 — in which they'll pay tribute to pop culture touchstones like Twin Peaks, Police Academy and It's a Wonderful Life — the stars of the USA comedy talked about their characters' romantic entanglements (or lack thereof), dream guest stars and the joy of... read more
