It’s Only a Play’s Martin Short Wants You to Lie to Him

first_imgMartin Short stopped by The View on February 3 to chat with the ladies about stepping into It’s Only a Play. “It’s an insane thing to do,” the Tony and Emmy winner said of the daunting task of replacing Nathan Lane. Take a look at the clip below as Short talks up his hilarious co-stars and also note that if you’re lucky enough to visit him backstage after a performance, just be sure to do one thing: Lie. “I hate people that come back and feel that the truth is important,” he joked. “If actors come back and say, ‘You know, I’d love to say it’s good, but I can’t lie,’ I want to say, ‘Yeah, and you can’t act!’” Catch Short and company in It’s Only a Play at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre through June 7. Oh, and look who’s on set again! After speculation she wouldn’t return, Rosie Perez is back at The View now that preview performances are underway for Fish in the Dark.
