Moss-Bachrach—who performs the antagonistic, but oddly charming Richie on FX’s breakout The Bear—revealed that he got here very near lacking out on the challenge altogether.
“They despatched me [scripts] the primary two episodes, and to be sincere, I used to be beginning to make the Star Wars present [Andor] and I did not even learn it,” the actor instructed Leisure Weekly Aug. 3. “I used to be so overwhelmed…It was COVID, I used to be getting my household over to the U.Ok. [to shoot Andor]. It simply form of slipped by way of the cracks.”
The Bear with out Moss-Bachrach’s Richie is like an Italian beef with out giardiniera—it simply does not make any sense!
