Frequently Asked Questions:

In the movie version of this podcast, who would play you?

Sean: Chiwetel Ejiofor, for sure! He’s a great actor, he kind of sort of, slightly if you squint your eyes looks like me. And he’s willing to do nudity.

Trying hard to look like Sean

Trying hard to look like Sean

Amita: I’d have the stunning Rosario Dawson play me. (I’m constantly mistaken for being Hispanic, so I’m running with it. Sorry Mindy Kaling/Parminder Nagra/Priyanka Chopra and Archie Punjabi!)


Yes, that’s me and Rosario- she’s so sweet and Sean took this photo of us.

If you could see one deceased artist one last time in concert, who would it be?

Amita: Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse…now I’m depressed…

Sean: Prince, Michael Jackson, Donny Hathaway, David Bowie…all on the same stage together.

Favorite Grey’s Anatomy quote of all time?

Sean: You’re my person. (Cristina Yang). Watching Grey’s is one of the few times I allow myself to drop my cynical veneer.

Amita: Pick me. Choose me. Love me! (Meredith Grey)
