TVLine Podcast: Dream Emmy Nominee Sterling K. Brown Reflects on This Is Us Phenomenon, Teases Funnier Season 2

This Is Us MVP Sterling K. Brown would be the first to tell you that the last thing he ever expected was to be famous — never mind so famous that he’d end up being interviewed for The TVLine Podcast as one of our Dream Emmy nominees. “I always thought that I would just be working in obscurity in perpetuity,” he admits to Executive Editor Kimberly Roots. Like, “‘You’re that guy from that guest spot!’… or ‘I loved you on Supernatural!'”

Luckily, the Emmy winner (for American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson) sounds like he’s adjusted beautifully to his now-extremely-high profile. Take, for instance, his sweet reaction to being approached by fans of his hit NBC drama or his gratitude for the public service that the show provides by allowing a nation divided to, at least for an hour each week, “say, ‘It’s not us vs. them, this is us — we’re all in this together.'”

Press PLAY on the widget below to check out Brown’s thoughtful interview — including his take on talk of a lighter, funnier Season 2 — then (if you haven’t already), head to iTunes to ensure that you never miss a TVLine Podcast by subscribing!

  1. Could you please provide transcripts to the audio files and facebook events? This site used to be a lot more reader-friendly. Can’t all listen to videos. Thank you

    Also, the audio/production quality needs some work. Too much echo and background noise. Love that you’re doing these pods, just throwing out an observation.

    I remember seeing him in Army Wives, Supernatural, and a few other projects over the years and always thinking he was really freaking good. Like too good for people to not know his work. I’m so happy for all of his success on television and now in film as well because he is truly talented.

    Also, what he said about the Thanksgiving episode of Master of None was truth. Masterful and powerful piece of art that more people need to see, even if they don’t watch the whole show.
