Onion's AV Club Interviews Tina Fey...
If you wondered how things were between Tina and Rachel Dratch who went from being a planned 30 Rock star to part of the supporting cast, you will want to read the interview for sure.
It's not the usual gloss-over crud you get with most celeb interviews. Really, it isn't. Here's a nifty "for instance":
"AVC: Why haven't there been more glimpses of the show-within-a-show's sketches?
TF: We didn't want to waste the 21 minutes we have showing sketches. We're trying to deal with the characters. And also, there's something inherently reductive to showing the show-within-a-show. It doesn't work for me. Maybe we'll do it if it helps us story-wise. But I don't know."
"Inherently reductive" isn't the kind of thing you hear in most celeb conversations, now is it? Of course not. But Tina Fey ain't your average celebrity, either. Go AV Club and congrats on an interview well-done.
