'Men at Work' Stars Reveal Line Learning Tips and Killer Dance Moves (Video)
The men of TBS comedy Men at Work were (sort of) hard at work when The Hollywood Reporter dropped by for a set visit.
Shooting their second season on the Culver City lot, stars Danny Masterson and James Lesure greeted THR’s cameras and took us around for an in-depth look at where they work and play.
Masterson and Lesure play Milo Foster and Gibbs, respectively, two members of a group of friends who work together at the magazine "Full Steam."
Masterson, who played Steven Hyde on That '70s Show from 1998 through 2006, reveals that his years of TV experience have helped him perfect a way to properly learn his lines -- by secretly planting them around the set on post-it notes.
Masterson also introduces viewers to Breckin Meyer, the creator and writer of the TBS show, who also stars on Franklin & Bash.
“I write my lines on scraps of paper. Do you do that, too?” asks Masterson.
Meyer’s answer: “I don't.”
We also get to see where they check themselves -- and their noses -- out before shooting their scenes.
“I’m the one who generally has bats in the cave,” admits Lesure.
“A little nose candy. He’s bringing back the ‘80s,” says Masterson.
Masterson and Lesure then meet up with Michael Cassidy, who plays Tyler Mitchell. After a tour of Tyler’s abode, they say hello to Adam Busch, who gives THR’s viewers a little dance.
Busch then shows THR around his character Neal’s apartment, which he shares with his girlfriend Amy (Meredith Hagner).
"I think the dynamic of their relationship is really on display here because it’s entirely Amy’s stuff,” he says before showing us some of Hagner’s photos that decorate the faux-apartment, including a shot from an Elton John concert.
Watch the THR set visit above to see even more behind-the-scenes action from the Men at Work stars.
Season two of Men at Work premieres Thursday, April 4, at 10 p.m. on TBS.
