Q&A With James Wolk, Star Of “Political Animals”

BuzzFeed chatted with the television star about working with Sigourney Weaver, his stint on Happy Endings and what makes him 'LOL.'

James Wolk plays Doug Hammond, Elaine Barrish's son and Chief of Staff, alongside Sigourney Weaver, Ellen Burstyn, Carla Gugino and Sebastian Stan. The miniseries airs on Sundays on the USA Network.

This is the second time you've worked with Sigourney Weaver. (The two previously starred in the movie, You Again.) What has it been like working with her?

Working with Sigourney Weaver is like dropping in a neal drama school for a day... As a young actor it's such a joy and honor to do so.
