Michael picked out John and revealed why he chose him.

“Because of his compassion, his humor,” Michael shared. “Compassion and humor can take you a long way. I sense in him that he makes a conscientious effort where the material is good to try different types of roles.”

In the same interview, Michael opened up about how much he relates to his Kominsky Method character.

“He’s got a lot [in common with me],” he says. “I was trying to work on that or that kind of simplicity of it. So, I think that was certainly one. And I can’t say he was all like me, but I liked Wonder Boys a lot, I think all the characters in Wonder Boys were well done. But I think Sandy’s pretty damn close.”

Michael added that comedy doesn’t “ever gets the respect that it’s due. You hardly ever see a comedy actor nominated for best actor, when in fact, comedy is much more difficult to do than drama. For me, it was really the chance to work with Paul Reiser and Alan [in The Kominsky Method]. They’re great at comedy, they have unbelievable timing.”

The new season of the Netflix show debuts on May 28th.
