Kristin Chenoweth Says Her 'Trial & Error' Character is Lisa Vanderpump Meets Hannibal Lecter

Kristin Chenoweth dished all about starring in season two of the NBC comedy Trial & Error while making appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers on Monday night (July 16).

The Emmy-winning actress revealed that it was season one star John Lithgow who first convinced her to consider the gig. “I was on tour. He called me and he said, ‘You have to do it. You’re from the same planet I am; just do it.’”

Kristin plays Lavinia Peck-Foster, the unofficial first lady of a quirky southern town accused of the strange murder of her husband. “I based her on Lisa Vanderpump — the style and hairdo and her ring size. Then I also put in some Carol Burnett — my queen — and Madeline Kahn —the zany—there. There’s a little bit of singing; I hearken to Dolly and Julie Andrews. And then there’s Hannibal Lecter in there,” Chenoweth said.

Later, Andrew Rannells joins them on the couch and talks about how he first met Kristin, the revival of The Boys in the Band and what it was like to be a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race – Watch more after the cut!
