Tituss Burgess, ook bekend as Titus Andromedon, stel eintlik 'n reeks Pinot Noir -wyn bekend, alhoewel die treffende YouTube -video van sy karakter

As hierdie wyn nie uit Myanamar kom nie, sal ons teleurgesteld wees.

As u na die komediereeks van Netflix gekyk het Die onbreekbare Kimmy Schmidtsoos die res van ons, het u waarskynlik meer as een of twee keer saam met Titus se pakkende deuntjie, "Peeno Noir", neurie. Wel, ons het 'n paar nuus vir u: Tituss Burgess, wat Titus Andromedon speel op die Netflix-treffer, stel 'n regte reeks Pinooooot-Noir-wyn bekend, genaamd Pinot by Titus.

'Peeno Noir' was waarskynlik een van die mees onvergeetlike tonele uit Kimmy Schmidt, toe Titus probeer om 'n treffer -enkelsnit op YouTube te skep en sy wegbreek te vind op pad na internet en Broadway -ster. Volgens vervaardigers is die liedjie byna heeltemal geïmproviseer deur Burgess.

Burgess het die aankoms van die duur wyn ($ 24 per bottel) op Instagram aangekondig, en dit sal 24 Maart aan die kleinhandelaars gestuur word.

Seisoen twee van Die onbreekbare Kimmy Schmidt kom volgende maand na Netflix, so dit is genoeg tyd om met 'n glas te ontspan Pinot Noir, 'n sigaar rook (miskien selfs met Roseanne Barr deel).


Tituss Burgess oor seisoen 2 van ‘ Onbreekbaar Kimmy Schmidt, ’ Hoe Tina Fey sy grense stoot (‘I ’m in White Face, Man! ’) & His Viral Sensation ‘Peeno Noir ’

Hoe was dit om te sien hoe “Peeno Noir ” soos dit gebeur het?
Ek weet nie dat ek soveel aandag of aandag daaraan gegee het as wat daaraan aandag gegee is nie, en dit sou die eerlike waarheid wees. Ek bedoel, ek het duidelik aandag daaraan geskenk omdat ek my eie reeks Pinot Noir begin het (genaamd Pinot by Tituss ”), maar dit was heerlik om te weet dat mense dink dit is snaaks en eienaarskap daarvan geword het, maar dit is iets anders geword as wat dit aanvanklik was. Mense lees hierdie woorde op en vertel my dat hul kantoor daarin breek, net soos die vrylating en niemand dink aan wat dit eintlik beteken nie, en daarom het dit 'n eie lewe geneem, apart van die vertoning. Maar dit is wonderlik en ek is mal daaroor, en ek hoop dat hulle iets so ewe opwindend en bevredigend sal vind oor hierdie seisoen as verlede seisoen.

Ons leer hierdie seisoen meer oor Titus ’s “straight life ”. Wie was jy gedurende jou reguit lewe?
Gay! (Lag) Eerlik, ek het 'n formele gesprek met my ma gehad toe ek 19 was, maar ek weet nie dat ek ooit in die kas was nie, as ek heeltemal eerlik was. Ek het nog nooit die denkwyse gehad wat ek aan die wêreld hoef te vertel nie.

Hoeveel van die karakter is jy?
Ek sal eerlik met jou wees: baie min. Ons deel 'n soortgelyke goddelose sin vir humor, en ons is natuurlik beide mal oor musiekteater en Diana Ross, maar my energie leef baie laer op die grond as syne, en ek smag nie na die kollig soos hy dit doen nie. Die feit is dat ek my alleen tyd regtig geniet, so ek is nie lus vir die manier waarop my karakter dit doen nie. Teen die tyd dat ons die seisoen verfilm het, was ek redelik uitgeput. Hy benodig so 'n hoë vibrasie, en teen die tyd dat dit klaar is, is ek bly om hom 'n paar maande op te hang.

Titus se deurbraakmoment hierdie seisoen betrek hom in geisha -klere. Ek wag net om te hoor wat die kritici daaroor te sê het.
Ag, heer. Toe ek die skrif lees, het ek gedink: “Jesus. Verlede jaar was dit die wolf (Jacqueline, wat 'n Amerikaanse Indiër is, en#8221 het tydens die eindronde 'n eerste gehuil losgemaak) dit sal die geisha wees. ”

Hoe voorbereid is u op enige terugslag?
O, ek is voorbereid. Ek het ses maande tyd gehad om voor te berei vir die harde kritiek. Die ding met (skeppers) Tina (Fey) en Robert (Carlock) is dat hulle nie wegskram van die huidige klimaat in die land nie, en op oppervlakte kan dit lyk asof hulle hierdie dom stereotipes 'n platform gee , Ek dink dit vererger net waarvoor ons so sensitief geraak het. Maar as dit 'n opskrif is, my vriend, is dit 'n eerlike spel.
Tina en Robert is twee van die mees ingeligte mense wat ek ooit ontmoet het, en soms kry ons draaiboeke en ek dink: dit het seker nie êrens gebeur nie, of, dit is beslis iets wat hulle gemaak het up. ” Dus kom ek op die internet en daar is dit. Die transrasiale storielyn – mense voel asof hulle vorige lewens onthou en as ek hierdie opskrifte lees, is dit snaaks omdat dit so ongelooflik is. So ja, dit is 'n fyn lyn, maar hulle behandel dit met groot sensitiwiteit en uitstekende klas, en dit is immers 'n komedie.

Is daar ooit tye waar u van hou, “ Tina, nee, nee – te ver. ”
Ja, die geisha -episode! Ek wou dit nie doen nie.

Waaroor twyfel jy?
Ek is in 'n wit gesig, man! Ek wou nie dat iemand dink ek respekteer 'n kultuur nie. Maar wat ons gedoen het, was om seker te maak dat, hoewel dit snaaks is, hy uiters opreg is oor wat met hom gebeur het. Hy is regtig, en solank hy werklik is in sy interpretasie en sy erkenning van sy vorige lewens, is dit nie aanstootlik nie. Daar is iets vreemds aan die einde van die episode, en ek dink dit dien ook 'n groter storielyn, naamlik dat Titus uiteindelik die inisiatief geneem het om beheer oor sy loopbaan te neem. Niemand anders gee hom werk nie, so hy het een vir homself geskryf, en dit is die slim ding daaroor.

Wat dink jy as mense Titus 'n stereotipe noem?
Ek dink hulle het nie dieselfde program gesien as wat ek verfilm het nie. Titus is meer almal as Jacqueline, Kimmy of Lillian. Hy het gebreek, hy kan dit nie bekostig om sy huur te betaal nie, hy jaag na hierdie loopbaan wat nie gerealiseer het nie, hy het probleme in verhoudings, ten minste die afgelope seisoen, en hy is nie 'n maat 32 in die middel nie. Hy word verwerp as hy probeer om iets goeds met sy lewe te doen, selfs al is dit een van sy bisarre, dit gaan my beroemde uitstappies maak. Die meeste Amerikaners leef onvervuld. Die meeste Amerikaners het nie die geld wat Jacqueline het nie. Die meeste Amerikaners, veral swart mense, kom nie weg met moord nie, net soos Lillian gedoen het. So hulle gee nie aandag nie, dit is wat ek dink.

Jou optrede van Diana Ross ’s “Glo in jouself en#8221 terwyl jy die Menseregteveldtog se sigbaarheidsprys einde verlede jaar aanvaar het, was so aangrypend. Waarom is dit belangrik dat jy buite en sigbaar is?
Liefie, hoeveel tyd het jy? (Lag) Ek weet hoe donker plekke voel, en ek weet hoe die afwesigheid van liefde en gemeenskap voel, en as ek 'n ek gehad het toe ek grootgeword het om te sien, sou ek julle miskien vroeër bekend gewees het as twee jaar gelede. Om hierdie rede wil ek nie hê dat 'n jongmens of 'n ou mens nie moet erken wie hy deur die hele lewe in die wêreld gekom het nie. Hierdie huidige een wat u ondervind, is een wat ten volle besef moet word – anders is u die wandelende dooies, en wat is die punt?

Hy is regtig, en solank hy werklik is in sy interpretasie en sy erkenning van sy vorige lewens, is dit nie aanstootlik nie. Daar is iets vreemds aan die einde van die episode, en ek dink dit dien ook 'n groter storielyn, naamlik dat Titus uiteindelik die inisiatief geneem het om beheer oor sy loopbaan te neem. Niemand anders gee hom 'n werk nie, so hy het een vir homself geskryf, so dit is die slim ding daaroor.

Wat dink jy as mense Titus 'n stereotipe noem?
Ek dink hulle het nie dieselfde program gesien as wat ek verfilm het nie. Titus is meer almal as Jacqueline, Kimmy of Lillian. Hy het gebreek, hy kan dit nie bekostig om sy huur te betaal nie, hy jaag na hierdie loopbaan wat nie gerealiseer het nie, hy het probleme in verhoudings, ten minste die afgelope seisoen, en hy is nie 'n maat 32 in die middel nie. Hy word verwerp as hy probeer om iets goeds met sy lewe te doen, selfs al is dit een van sy bisarre, dit gaan my beroemde uitstappies maak. Die meeste Amerikaners leef onvervuld. Die meeste Amerikaners het nie die geld wat Jacqueline het nie. Die meeste Amerikaners, veral swart mense, kom nie weg met die pleeg van moord soos Lillian gedoen het nie. So hulle gee nie aandag nie, dit is wat ek dink.

Jou optrede van Diana Ross ’s “Glo in jouself en#8221 terwyl jy die Menseregteveldtog se sigbaarheidsprys einde verlede jaar aanvaar het, was so aangrypend. Waarom is dit vir jou belangrik om buite en sigbaar te wees?
Liefie, hoeveel tyd het jy? (Laughs) I know what dark places feel like and I know what the absence of love and community feels like, and if I had a me when I was growing up to see, I would have perhaps been familiar to you guys a lot sooner than two years ago. For that reason, I don’t want any young person or any old person to not acknowledge who they came into the world being through all of their past lives. This current one that you’re experiencing is one that should be fully realized – otherwise you are the walking dead, and what is the point?


Tituss Burgess on Season 2 of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,’ How Tina Fey Pushes His Limits (‘I’m in White Face, Man!’) & His Viral Sensation ‘Peeno Noir’

What was it like seeing “Peeno Noir” take off the way it did?
I don’t know that I gave it as much thought or attention as attention was paid to it, and that’d be the honest truth. I mean, obviously I paid attention because I launched my own line of Pinot Noir (called “Pinot by Tituss”), but it was lovely to know that people thought it was funny and had taken ownership of it, but it’s become something other than what it initially was. People recite those words and tell me that their office breaks out into it just as release – no one’s thinking about what it actually meant – so it’s taken on a life of its own separate from the show. But it’s awesome and I love it, and I hope they find something as equally exciting and satisfying about this season as they did last season.

We get to learn more about Titus’s “straight life” this season. Who were you during your straight life?
Gay! (Laughs) Honestly, I had a formal conversation with my mom when I was 19, but I don’t know that I was ever in the closet, if I’m being perfectly honest. I never had the “I have to tell the world” mindset.

How much of the character is you?
I’m gonna be honest with you: very little. We share a similar wicked sense of humor and we both, of course, love musical theater and Diana Ross, but my energy lives a lot lower to the ground than his does and I don’t yearn for the spotlight the way he does. The fact is, I really, really enjoy my alone time, so I don’t crave that the way my character does. In fact, by the time we’re done filming the season, I’m quite exhausted. He requires such a high level of vibration, and so by the time it’s done, I’m happy to hang him up for a few months.

Titus’s breakthrough moment this season involves him in geisha garb. I’m just waiting to hear what the critics have to say about that.
Oooh lord. When I read that script I thought, “Jesus. Last year it was the wolf (Jacqueline, who is “American Indian,” unleashed a primal howl during the finale) this year it’s gonna be the geisha.”

How prepared are you for any backlash?
Oh, I’m prepared. I’ve had six months to prep for the harsh criticism. The thing about (creators) Tina (Fey) and Robert (Carlock) is, they don’t shy away from the current climate of the country, and while on a surface level it might seem like they’re giving these silly stereotypes a platform, I think it’s just sort of exacerbating what we have become so sensitive to. But if it’s a headline, my friend, it is fair game.
Tina and Robert are two of the most informed people I’ve ever met, and sometimes we get scripts and I think, “Surely this has not happened somewhere,” or, “Surely this is something that they’ve made up.” So I’ll get on the Internet and there it is. The transracial storyline – people feeling as though as they remember past lives – when I read these headlines, it’s funny because it’s so unbelievable. So yeah, it’s a fine line, but they treat it with great sensitivity and great class – and it is, after all, a comedy.

Are there ever times where you’re like, “Tina, no, no – too far.”
Yeah – the geisha episode! I didn’t wanna do it.

What were you hesitant about?
I’m in white face, man! I didn’t want anyone to think I was disrespecting a culture. But what we did was make certain that, while it’s funny, he’s extremely sincere about what has happened to him. He’s for real, and as long as he’s for real in his interpretation and his acknowledgement of his past lives then it’s not offensive. There’s something oddly touching about the end of that episode, and I think it also serves a greater storyline, which is, Titus has finally taken the initiative to take control of his career. No one else is giving him a job, so he wrote one for himself, so that is what’s smart about it.

What do you think when people call Titus a stereotype?
I think they didn’t see the same show that I filmed. Titus is more everyman than Jacqueline, Kimmy or Lillian. He’s broke, he can’t afford to pay his rent, he’s chasing this career that has not materialized, he has trouble in relationships, at least last season, and he is not a size 32 in the waist. He gets rejected when he attempts to do something good with his life, even if it’s one of his bizarre “this is gonna make me famous” excursions. Most Americans are living lives unfulfilled. Most Americans don’t have the money that Jacqueline has. Most Americans, especially black people, don’t get away with committing murder like Lillian did. So they’re not paying attention, that’s what I think.

Your performance of Diana Ross’s “Believe in Yourself” while accepting the Human Rights Campaign’s Visibility Award late last year was so moving. Why is being out and visible important to you?
Honey, how much time do you have? (Laughs) I know what dark places feel like and I know what the absence of love and community feels like, and if I had a me when I was growing up to see, I would have perhaps been familiar to you guys a lot sooner than two years ago.
