'Off the Cuff' Podcast: Amanda Crew on Being Just 'One of the Guys' in HBO's 'Silicon Valley'

The actress yucks it up with #pretapodcasts over being the only girl in a cast of comedy bros and what she shares with her pencil-skirted character ("We have some of the same hair.")

Crew stopped by #pretapodcasts to tell us how she landed such a prize role, as well as what it's like working with Amanda Bynes ("the Lucille Ball of our generation"), the process of transforming into her uptight character Monica ("I just became a woman every time") and why viewers should be sure to tune in to the Silicon finale. (Hint: "the biggest dick joke you'll ever see.")
