1. It’s pop culture I actually know of.
Since I don’t watch TV or go to many movies and am generally out of sync with pop culture, it’s very thrilling to be asked to be part of something that I actually know about. (Case in point: when I auditioned for my role on “The Big Bang Theory” and was asked to do a female impression of Jim Parsons’ Sheldon character, my response was, “Who’s Jim Parsons, who’s Sheldon, and what is ‘The Big Bang Theory’?”) I watched “Candid Camera” on and off as a child and there’s something very surreal and exciting about being part of something that I actually used to watch. Note to J.J. Abrams, if you decide to bring back “Lost,” I was a huge fan and I’d love to be on that too.
