Lauren Graham entered the HBO comedy as an NBC censor — a “lucky coincidence” one week after David made the lives of real NBC censors’ “miserable” after his ‘SNL’ monologue, says executive producer Jeff Schaffer.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Sunday’s episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, “Namaste.”]
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – When Larry David faced backlash over his recent “controversial” Saturday Night Live monologue, many viewers took to social media in his defense to ask, “Have you ever watched an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm?” Sunday’s episode of David’s HBO comedy proved that point.

“That was a wonderfully timed accident. If you didn’t like it before? Here it is again!” Curb executive producer Jeff Schaffer tells The Hollywood Reporter of the response to David’s concentration camp bit on NBC’s SNL. “This episode, especially, we’re talking about things that many people are afraid to talk about.”

Even more aptly timed is the introduction of Larry’s new romantic interest, foul-mouthed NBC censor and single mom Bridget, played by Lauren Graham. Below, Schaffer talks to THR about Graham’s role — another “lucky coincidence that one week after he made NBC censors’ lives miserable on Saturday Night Live, we got to see him actually dating one on Curb” — and what’s ahead for the budding pair.

Why did you want to set up Larry with an NBC censor?
Larry’s had a long history with NBC censors. It’s just a lucky coincidence that one week after he made NBC censors’ lives miserable on Saturday Night Live, we got to see him actually dating one on Curb. Larry thought it would be really funny to be dating a censor and to get turned on by all of the foul language that she says “no” to all day. We shot the scene and it was great, but in the editing room we realized that it wasn’t as much about him getting turned on by it as it was a wonderful, romantic moment. So we put the romantic Parisian music under it and made this very sweet moment for Curb. That’s as romantic as we get: Larry falling for someone as she’s talking about pussy.

Is the real Larry David acting out his own funny fantasy by writing Bridget in as an NBC censor, having dealt with many throughout his career?
It’s a very strange, sweet revenge fantasy for all of the censors. Instead of hating them, what if he actually fell for one? I can say without hesitation that Lauren Graham is playing the coolest NBC censor you will ever meet.

How did you go about casting Graham — were there others who tried out for the role?
The character, Bridget, is going to be around for a while and we knew it was going to be a pretty big part for the final half of the season. So it was important for us that Larry had someone who he felt super-comfortable with. But it had to work both ways. He had to be comfortable saying anything in front of her, and we also had to make sure that it was someone who would be comfortable saying all of these foul things, too. We didn’t actually audition this part. We just talked about who would be great for this, and Larry thought she would be perfect and she was. He can say anything around her and she rolls with it. She was comfortable saying anything on the planet in front of Larry.

What about Graham did David think would work, and what was it like when they shot their scenes?
Lauren and Larry have an effortless connection. She walked in and it felt like they had been dating for a long time, it was so easy. The very first scene of her story was the first time she was on set, and she had to say the filthiest things on the planet. She was laughing and saying, “Oh, my dad was going to be so happy that I was on Curb.” Larry knew her a little bit socially and just got the great vibe that Lauren gives off. She is an incredibly giving and receptive actress and a great listener, so it’s very easy for him to improv with her.

During Carrie Fisher’s long career, she inspired many, and since her death in December, a number of celebrities have come forward to share their stories and fond memories. But actress Lauren Graham shared her love of Fisher before the star’s death.

In her latest book, Talking As Fast As I Can, Graham reveals how Fisher inspired her both as an actress and as an author. In the book, which was released on Nov. 29, 2016, Graham writes, “Carrie Fisher is one of my favorite actors and writers. I’ve enjoyed her films, seen her on Broadway, and read everything she’s written. When I was writing my novel Someday, Someday, Maybe, I kept her Postcards from the Edge on my desk the whole time, and when I got stuck I’d pick it up and reread sections I’d already read a dozen times. Our books are very different, but the fact that she is an actress who wrote a novel — one that was loosely based on her own life — and became a successful screenwriter was a big inspiration to me.”

Graham then went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in early December and talked about Fisher some more when Colbert asked about her inspirations. “The thing that first gave me the idea were Carrie Fisher’s books because she’s such a talented writer of comedic books and also an actor and also now she has her own nonfiction book,” Graham told Colbert.

Lauren Graham blows a confetti kiss to the camera in her latest photo shoot for Good Housekeeping‘s January 2017 issue, on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 49-year-old Gilmore Girls star had to share with the mag:

On playing two similarly unconventional single moms of teens in Gilmore Girls and Parenthood: “There are things that I’m good at and there are things that are just not for me. I’m not gonna play a cop, I’m not gonna play a doctor … and that’s OK. I’d rather be in [roles] that are really verbal and smart and funny. As Diane Keaton said to me, ‘Funny doesn’t age.’”

On which character she relates to more – Gilmore Girls’ Lorelai Gilmore or Parenthood’s Sarah Braverman: “I relate more to Lorelai Gilmore, probably. I mean, I speak quickly more in attitude and just in athleticism of what that work is and was for me, as an actor, that’s a place I feel really comfortable and exhilarated, so, in that way I guess I relate a little more to that world and that language.”

On her relationship with long-time love, former Parenthood co-star Peter Krause: “We couldn’t stop talking. Not about ourselves, but about the world and books and family. Once we got together, there was no game play. It was like, You like me, and I like you. It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it’s completely random.”

On her surprising hidden talent: “I really like to entertain. None of my characters ever cook, so I would think it’s surprising that I actually really like to.”
