Nomination reaction: John Lithgow

Arthur Mitchell on 'Dexter'

John Lithgow, Arthur Mitchell on “Dexter”

“We knew that (the Thanksgiving dinner scene) was going to be a classic scene when we got the script. And it was a one day shoot and it was almost like shooting a comedy scene because of how giddy it was even though it was so disturbing. First of all, it was Thanksgiving and had this disturbing Norman Rockwell look to it. It was so wild by the end of the scene, it felt like something out of a Marx movie.”
