Lithgow jokes: I dont think Ill last 20 good years. Still, Jeffrey and I are in the honeymoon phase of our relationship and its great that two character-men in their sixties are starring in a sitcom.
Youre only as young as you feel and both actors insist the decision to name Lithgows character, John, and Tambors 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 youre underlining the script.
Twenty Good Years debuts October 11 on NBC.
