Lights, Camera ... Podcast. 

It's a star-studded episode of ITTO? as Sachin and Lindsey are joined by award-winning actor Usman Ally.

Live from his home in Los Angeles (via Zoom), Usman proves to be wonderful company as he chats about his career, one that has seen him excel in theatre as well as on big and small screen. Usman is perhaps best known for playing Mohammed Al Jaffar in Veep and Andrew Malik in Suits and there is plenty of insight into both roles, including what it was like working alongside the amazing Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Usman also talks about the time he auditioned with Larry David ahead of getting a part in Curb Your Enthusiasm, as well as about acting in general. 

There is discussion, too, about life in LA during lockdown and just how surreal and unsettling it is to be going through all of this while Donald Trump is the president.

Finally, as ever, there is the quiz (ZOOM quiz!) and the lead-out song, which is an Usman-selected banger. 

So download, listen and love. And after you have, please Rate and Review. Also, get in touch with Sachin and Lindsey via the ITTO? Twitter account (@ITTOpod) and/or the ITTO? email address (ITTO@gmail.com). 

Cheers!

Usman Ally (Netlix' A Series of Unfortunate Events, Veep, 2015 Obie Award Winner) stops by Utkarsh's apartment to chat about his experience as a Pakistani-African-American in this country. Utkarsh takes the opportunity to apologize to Usman for their past negativity surrounding a theater production. This conversation opens up a beautiful dialogue about South-Asian unity in the arts and how much goes on behind the scenes of the business that no one ever hears about. Truly a great real-time example of getting honest, squashing beef, and starting The Rebuild. DO NOT MISS HISTORY BEING MADE!!!
