I didn’t expect much from “The Leftover” Season 2, but it was quite a surprise.
For the first time, I had a show that was as emotionally complex as it was funny.
“The leftovers” was a show about a man who was once a child prodigy and now lives a quiet life with his wife and young son.
His name is Noah (Joel McHale) and he is the youngest son of a scientist (Michael McKean) who lost his wife (Sarah Paulson) and child (Hannah Simone) at a space station crash.
Noah was born in a space capsule, and his life is a tragic and tragic story.
“I think that the way the show is set up is that Noah’s parents had to flee the planet in order to keep their son alive.
It was a very tragic, tragic situation, and Noah is trying to make sense of it and try to understand why his parents did that,” said co-creator Chris McKenna.
Noah’s mom, who works as a janitor in a small apartment building, is a hard worker, and her husband (Michael Cera) is the hard working father of a baby girl.
Noah and his friends come together on the island as Noah tries to find his own place, and eventually discovers his new home on the other side of the world.
Noah is not as isolated as he seems.
“What I really love about Noah is that he is very accepting of people,” McKenna said.
“He’s a really good-natured kid who has a good sense of humor.
He’s a great, funny person.”
Noah and co-creators Charlie Kaufman and Joel Coen are the two creators of “The Big Bang Theory,” so it is no surprise that Noah was the subject of a lot of attention when the show first debuted.
“We got a lot written about Noah, and I think that it was kind of a surprise,” McKenna told me.
“It was very easy to understand the show.
Noah has this really cool, kind of weird, slightly strange, funny character and he’s sort of the perfect foil for this guy, but the idea of a weird, weird, funny guy in a weird world was a really interesting idea.
And that’s exactly what happened.
We were writing the show in a really weird way, and it just kind of worked.”
McKenna said Noah was often the subject to a lot, especially from the writers and actors.
“There were times where I had to yell, ‘Get that dude on the show,’ or ‘Get him on the episode,’ because he was always being the butt of jokes,” he said.
Noah also had his fair share of fans.
McKenna said that his favorite Noah moment was when Noah, playing the role of a friend, had a flashback to the day that he was born.
“At the time, it was an incredible moment,” McKenna explained.
“My mom would have to pull me off the couch, and my dad would be sitting in the kitchen, and we’d have this really weird conversation about whether we were still alive.
We’re like, ‘Is this real?
Is this real?’
And then he goes, ‘It’s the day you were born.’
It was kind-of a weird scene.”
McKenna added that Noah also enjoyed being the star of “Community.”
“I have to say, I did get a lot more love from the show for Noah because I was able to be in that position of Noah being the weirdest person on Earth,” McKenna admitted.
“Even when he was playing a kid who was just, you know, playing a character that was kind and innocent and kind and funny, I always had a good time with Noah.
Noah didn’t always get a fair shot on the big screen, and he got a great audition.
But he got it.”
“HBO, I love you so much, Chris.
And if you ever need to apologize to me or anything, I’m so sorry.
I’ve been so happy for you, so I’m really grateful.”
“The show was kind enough to give us the chance to play with our characters,” said actor and co/creator Joe Keery, who played Noah.
“They were so fun.
Noah definitely had the coolest scene in the whole series, but I can tell you that I would not have been able to do it if I wasn’t able to see Noah’s face.
He was so cute, so adorable, so charming.
So happy to see him in the room, and then on camera, he’s like, What the hell are you doing?
You know what I mean?
He’s such a good guy.”
The cast of “Halt and Catch Fire” also enjoyed the opportunity to play Noah, including actors Ty Burrell, Michael J. Fox, and Joel McHale.
