TNT's Trust Me debuts tonight at 10 pm and its star, Tom Cavanagh, recently sat down with TV Guide to help sell us on his advertising dramedy. We have a small excerpt from the interview, which even includes a little spoiler about the lack of an upcoming love story:
TVGuide.com: You two strike me as having similar comedic sensibilities. That whole sardonic, sarcastic thing.
Cavanagh: Exactly. We like the rapid-fire, the smaller thing. He also likes to know what's going in a scene — the different things that work beneath the surface — and so do I. We both like to rehearse a lot. There are a lot of similarities, and it's good to click on those levels.
TVGuide.com: Would you say Connor is the more anxious of the two?
Cavanagh: No, I don't think so. It might possibly be the reverse.
TVGuide.com: But he gets so bummed out when he's passed over for a promotion.
Cavanagh: Yeah, but he's more of the free-wheeler and, I think, more irresponsible and immature. But he's really good at his job. He gets the great grades, but then can let go and chase the females. It's like high school.
TVGuide.com: Will they be playing sexual tension between you and Monica Potter (as a new hire/award-winning copywriter)?
Cavanagh: I don't think anyone's interested in getting involved in a "Will they/Won't they?" predicament. You can rise and fall on one of those. If I'm a viewer, it's like, "Here's a woman who's divorced, and here's a guy who's romantic trouble. I can see it." But I don't want it to be a thing. I want the attraction of the show to be the many things opposed to the one.
