UPROXX
 editor-in-chief (and sometime Gambit contributor) The Cajun Boy has a very entertaining interview with actor Charles Halford, who plays Reggie Ledoux in HBO's Louisiana-set crime drama True Detective.

In it, Halford talks about not smoking weed with stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, not being allowed to drink while he was in New Orleans — and, most entertainingly, hitting the town with New Orleans native Richard Simmons after running into Simmons on the plane (they went to Drago's):
He was super nice. But he can’t not be noticed. Like every third person that came on the plane, he would be like, “Oh and you’re just a magnificent little so-and-so” and “you’re just a big lumberjack who loves his mother.” And then I fell asleep during the flight and I woke up and he was like, “Were you dreaming? What kind of dreams were you having?” He was right in my ear. I’m like, I can’t believe this is happening to me. I’ve never flown first class. I’ve never been to New Orleans and now I got Richard Simmons in my ear, you know asking me about my dreams and trying to give me some psych read or something.
Read the whole thing.
