'Big Love' star Chloe Sevigny on starring opposite Katie Holmes on Broadway, her dream TV job, and the comedian who spoofs her online

Big Love fans were sad to learn that this will be the final season of HBO’s family drama (spoiler alert: I’ve seen the premiere episode and it’s great) but star Chloe Sevigny, who plays the manipulative Nikki, is already thinking about her future gigs. The actress’ name has been mentioned as potentially starring opposite Katie Holmes in a Broadway revival of the play Extremities. Sevigny confirmed that she has indeed been considering a role in the revival . “I was reading it and I’m kind of seeing how the cast is gonna pan out,” she says. “I know the director is great but I feel like the cast has gotta be real strong. And it’s such a commitment.”

Meanwhile, she’s not ruling out a return to a TV series but is very specific about what she wants out of the project, namely, that it’s shot on the East Coast. Says the actress, ” I’m not opposed to another series but I don’t think I’d do one in Los Angeles. I’d like to do a half-hour comedy on a cable network in New York where I play someone really glamorous and really goofy. That’s my dream job!” she says, laughing.

But the question everyone wants to know (or maybe just me and my EW colleagues Tanner Stransky and Henry Goldblatt) is what does Sevigny think about comedian Drew Droege and his hilarious series of viral video spoofs of the actress? “I met him the other day,” says Sevigny. “I feel like he doesn’t dress like me, he doesn’t talk like me! I feel like there’s zero connection. I don’t even understand how he can say it’s me. And then the things he references are sooo not me. He was very charming and very nervous. He thought I hated him. Of course not! I’m flattered. But it’s just not me at all!”

Watch Droege’s latest “Chloe” spoof, “Holidays,” below…

    She might be missing the point about her drag doppelganger. Since she’s soooo indie and alternative, she demands a twist on the traditional model.

  • MikeyNYC

    I would think that Chloe is more of an expert in “oral video spooge”, not “viral video spoof”.

    • topoopon

      Bunnies are gross.

    • Hutchy

      LOL ahhhh, the prudishness of EW, its like the sun rising in the east, you can always count on it. So she gave a BJ….ON CAMERA, EVEN!! GASP!! How NAUGHTY! VIDEOTAPING A BJ?!?! Who would DO such a thing??

  • Jed

    I have only watched the video provided here, but I don’t see the resemblance between her and Droege. She is right.

    • Tego Livi

      I’ve never seen anything with Chloe in it, but he definitely looks like her–she has always had the slightly “off” look of a man in drag. Something about the proportions of her facial features, I think. She doesn’t look ugly or mannish, really, just not quite feminine.

  • darclyte

    It’s not surprising that she was gracious when she met Droege, she’s known to be very “giving” and capable of swallowing her pride…among other things.

    • Fred

      While darclyte is more tasteful, MikeyNYC is funnier.

  • daisy

    She is so incredibly unaware of her indie hip chick rep that it is painful.

  • waiting4godot

    isn’t she the “actress” infamously famous for performing an explicit BJ in one of her movies? doncha think she might want to reconsider the east coast/west coast thing? i mean, isn’ there a lot more porn filmed in LA than in NYC?

      She’s also the one who was too upset about some dude on stage stepping on her dress to be happy about winning an Emmy (or Golden Globe). I never knew who she was until then, but I’ve though she was a shallow bitch ever since. The online spoofs are hilarious!! Looks up interviews (and her own videos) of the real Chloe on youtube and you’ll see the spoof is spot on.

    Chloe Sevigny is one of those hipster snobs, she came from a well off family in Connecticut and then came to New York and hung around the artsy fartsy crowd and tries so hard to be hip and has that snooty attitude. I can’t stand those snooty rich hipsters who try so hard to be cool and “hip” She’s the ultimate example of it.

  • RayT

    I find these spoof videos incredibly hilarious. The joke isn’t just limited to Chloe Sevigny. It satirizes all those ultra blue-blooded uppity celebs, those Gwyneth types, who think they’re such trend-setters. The funniest video is the one in which she claims toast is the biggest new food trend and she pronounces it with two syllables: “to-ast”.

    • jeffeastwood15

      Have you seen the video where she pronounces film “fill-um”?

  • MN

    Oh man! I thought this was going to be about Brown Bunny spoofs.

  • Robbie

    How can she not understand the connection between her and the spoof? It’s an homage to what she represents and promotes herself to be. It may not be “her”, but I can’t tell them apart.

  • jay

    Um, Chloe, he’s just like you. That’s why the videos are so hilarious… Get a sense of humor already!

  • Owen

    I think part of the fun is that he really doesn’t look or sound like her. I’m disappointed she doesn’t get that…
