Drew Tarver is not oblivious to how Cary Dubek on “The Other Two” has been going in a very unsavory direction. “I feel like Cary has always been dipping his toe in a little bit of bad behavior of finding himself giving into his desperation over the first two seasons,” he reveals to Gold Derby during our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video interview above). But unlike where Cary was in the first two seasons, Tarver sees him losing his grip on knowing where to dial back his more selfish tendencies. “I feel like this season he’s really struggling with knowing where the line is to where he’s going, getting so self-involved that he’s hurting those around him and himself a little bit more.”
“The Other Two,” which is currently streaming on Max, centers on two siblings, Brooke (Heléne Yorke) and Cary, who are forced to re-evaluate the direction of their lives when their teenage brother Chase (Case Walker), becomes a celebrity on social media. The show also stars Molly Shannon as the family matriarch Pat, and Ken Marino plays Chase’s agent Streeter. In the third season, Cary finds himself getting the work as an actor that he had been desiring for so long but in the process becomes more self-obsessed and ignorant as to how his actions affect the people around him.

Tarver has also had the chance to have a lot of fun with the fashion choices that Cary has been making on the show this season with one stand out being a blue suit that he wears without a dress shirt in the season premiere as well as the show’s promotional material. “I’ve been in that blue suit all over New York with just my sternum hair out. That was a really fun outfit to get to pu on and play.” He also had a blast donning a tux/gown, in the style of Billy Porter, lined with the names of queer icons that Cary wears to the premiere of an animated movie. “I remember filming in the theater. I would have to sit in that and the dress would just pop up over my head and I would have to turn and it would hit Brandon Scott Jones in the face. It was very unwieldy.”
Another project Tarver recently got to be a part of was Mel Brooks’ Hulu series “History of the World: Part II,” in which he got to portray Hitler receiving scores in an ice skating competition. “When you get the call to play Hitler with eyelashes, you think about it and then you eventually accept. I’m such a fan of Nick Kroll, Ike Barinholtz, Wanda Sykes and Dave Stassen and everybody who worked on that show.” In another skit, he got to play a soldier suffering from sea sickness on a boat waiting to storm Omaha Beach. “I, at one point, threw up into my hat and then drank my own throw up. It was disgusting and it was an honor.”
