Richard Jenkins Tells Laurie Metcalf About Auditioning for Bruce Dern's 'Nebraska' Role

Richard Jenkins revealed to Laurie Metcalf that he actually auditioned for a role in “Nebraska” that would eventually go to Bruce Dern during their interview at Variety’s “Actors on Actors.”

“I went in to audition for ‘Nebraska,’ the Bruce Dern part,” Jenkins said. “They talked to me about some other part, but I said, ‘No, that’s the part I want to play.’ I said, ‘I want to come in and read, if you don’t mind.’ I don’t mind auditioning.”

The seventh season of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, will air from Jan. 2 to Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.
