Q: Do you consider it a bonus that your “House of Lies” character, Jeannie, is relatively self-assured as a woman dealing with many men in the world of management consulting?

A: For sure. When Matt Carnahan (the show’s creator and executive producer) was first writing her, we were both really clear that we didn’t want her to be a caricature of a woman in any industry. We just wanted her to have confidence and have that be the reason that she’s moved up ... but also have that extreme hunger that allows you to continue to accelerate your career.

It happens with men, too, that when a lot of people get to a high position, it’s not nearly as satisfying as they had hoped. And the next goal of getting to the next-higher position is all they can think about.

Q: Is it safe to assume you’re pleased about the Emmy, Golden Globe and NAACP Image Award nominations that Don Cheadle received for the first season of “House of Lies”?

A: Even if this was never acknowledged by anyone, or even if no one watched it, I would still go into work every day -- and it has nothing to do with talking about craft or writing or any of that character-arc stuff.

These human beings that I come into contact with have just created so much happiness in my life. They are so wonderful to work with, and Don is the best captain you could ever hope for. It’s just an exceptional environment to be in.
