“Paul Ryan’s austerity car.” - @mattyglesias
Hey guys, it’s fall TV’s hottest star … Crystal the Monkey. Nope, not kidding. Some scoop from “Animal Practice,” her new show.
In a scene featured in the show’s trailers (see the 2:28 mark at the bottom of this post), Crystal is seen in an adorable plastic visor, taking bets on a turtle race in the back room.
Gunderson said that one of the turtles really rubbed her the wrong way because it was determined to veer off course and walk right toward her. He didn’t mention any power plays with the cats, dogs or tiger from the pilot, but he did also note that he had the idea for one of Dr. Rizzo’s more endearing character quirks: He suggested they make her a gambling addict since he knows how good Crystal is at working with props.
