Now You Know - Barry

HBO’s hit comedy-action series, Barry, has returned for a third season. Streaming on Disney+ Hotstar in India, the TV show is about a hitman named Barry who gets involved in LA’s theatre and art circle. Bill Hader essays the role of the titular character, and the SNL alum’s performances received plaudits, as did the series, winning several accolades over the past few years. Let's get into some lesser-known trivia from the series. Let's begin.

  1. Alec Berg, who created the TV show, was skeptical that an action-comedy TV show would be funny or even be well received. However, co-creator and leading man Bill Hader, a popular comedian, asked him "well, what if the hitman was me?". And the rest as they say is history.
  2. Anthony Carrigan, who plays the role of NoHo Hank was supposed to be killed off after the pilot episode. But the creators decided to keep the character as Carrigan’s comedic turn endeared him to the cast and crew.
  3. Hader came up with the idea for the second season in the most unlikely of places - while waiting in traffic on his way to a press event for season one. He pitched the idea to Alec Berg just minutes before the event commenced.
  4. Actress D'Arcy Carden, who plays Natalie, has known Bill Hader for several years. She has in fact worked for Hader as a nanny.
  5. A writer for another hit HBO series, Game of Thrones, once complained to Hader that the tone of the first few episodes of Barry was really dark. A bemused Hader responded by asking "you know you make Game of Thrones, right?. Alluding to the fact that Game of Thrones has earned notoriety for its dark and depressing storylines.
  6. While actor Henry Winkler was filming his final scenes for the second season, he looked around to realize that the production was happening on exactly the same soundstage Happy Days was filmed forty years ago. Winkler had starred alongside Ron Howard in the hit 70s TV series for nearly a decade. Winkler took the crew of Barry down memory lane by identifying various parts of the set used in Happy Days.

Well, catch the new episodes of Barry streaming on Disney + Hotstar.

That's the OTTplay Now You Know for today, until the next episode it's your host Nikhil signing out.
