After years spent stealing scenes in movies like ‘Wet Hot American Summer,’ ‘Superbad,’ ‘Pineapple Express’ and ‘I Love You, Man,’ Joe Lo Truglio finally landed the role he’d been waiting for as Officer Charles Boyle on ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine.’ Now, the comedic actor has taken on an even bigger challenge, playing former Attorney General Jeff Sessions opposite Jeff Daniels’ James Comey and Brendan Gleeson’s Donald Trump in Showtime’s ‘The Comey Rule.’ We talk about how he transformed himself into the septuagenarian southerner without slipping into “parody,” how ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ plans to address the George Floyd protests in a “very real way” and a lot more.
