Envelope Emmy Week: Alternative Family panel brings a wide mix of actors, shows [video]
As part of the Envelope Emmy Week and Screening Series, The Envelope gathered a group of actors to participate in an Alternative Families panel earlier this week — Jennifer Carpenter of "Dexter," Peter Krause of "Parenthood," Cloris Leachman of "Raising Hope," Denis O'Hare of "True Blood," Emmy Rossum of "Shameless" and Katey Sagal of "Sons of Anarchy" — to talk about how each of their shows, in their own weird way, involve the bonds of family, and the intimate relationships those bonds can bring.
In the hourlong conversation moderated by Times television critic Mary McNamara, the panel, in the clip below, discusses how actors must find a way to justify playing characters who sometimes do horrible things. Check back later for more clips.
