Sarah Paulson on playing Marcia Clark, being a working actor, and kissing Josh Hartnett

Actress Sarah Paulson is best known for playing numerous characters on American Horror Story and Marcia Clark on The People v. O.J., but her acting career started long before either of those roles. She began working as an actor right out of high school and eventually landed roles in movies and TV shows like Law and Order, Serenity, and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Sarah sits down with Jesse to talk about working on The People v. O.J., her first big acting job, and dealing with the ups and downs that come with being a working actor.

Ep 60: XXXL Merkin (S3E13)


When Q appears on the bridge naked and powerless, the Enterprise crew begrudgingly grants him asylum as they troubleshoot an Armageddon-sized problem for a planet in trouble. But as Data teaches him what it's like to be human, one of Q's old nemeses plans its revenge while he's the most vulnerable. How does Q decide his bodily proportions? What's the safest restaurant appetizer? Who is "Malibu Q"? It's the episode that's just a total mess. Sad!
