Here’s a nice long interview with Ben Schwartz about House of Lies and whether he would ever use Jean-Ralphio’s flirting techniques in real life:
I think a human being would get slapped for that. I don’t think I’d want to go out with a girl who’d want to go out with Jean-Ralphio. I don’t think I’d want to date a woman who, when I go up to her and start dancing like a crazy person and licking her neck would be like, “Oh, this is the person I’ve been looking for!”
He also talks about how the many rejections he’s encountered in entertainment have prepared him for a role in the cutthroat universe of House of Lies. And, of course, about the real reason Jean-Ralphio’s hair was so big last season.
