‘Twenty Good Years’ Stars Not Sure They Can Last That Long

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambor star in the new sitcom Twenty Good Years, but they admit they’re not sure if they’ll be able to do the show for that long.

Lithgow jokes: “I don’t think I’ll last 20 good years. Still, Jeffrey and I are in the honeymoon phase of our relationship and it’s great that two character-men in their sixties are starring in a sitcom.”

You’re only as young as you feel and both actors insist the decision to name Lithgow’s character, John, and Tambor’s character, Jeffrey, has nothing to do with potential fears of age-related memory loss.

As Lithgow puts it, “I just thought it would be confusing if I was called ‘Jeffrey’ and Jeffrey was called ‘John.”’

Tambor agrees, adding: “It was laziness more than anything. It makes it easy when you’re underlining the script.”

Twenty Good Years debuts October 11 on NBC.
