Whose Line Is It Anyway?'s Wayne Brady Reveals the Guest Stars Who Surprised (and Kicked!) Him

Jul 13 2013, 8:24am CDT | by

Whose Line Is It Anyway? is back next Tuesday (The CW, 8/7c), and it’s funnier than ever.

Returning players Wayne Brady, Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie have a new host (Archer‘s Aisha Tyler), a new roster of alternate improvers and a bevy of surprisingly game celeb guests (Vampire DiariesCandice Accola, Glee‘s Kevin McHale, to name a few) bringing the laughs.

Below, Brady talks to TVLine about the game that bugs him, the CW star who was a total natural and the effort to bring back fan fave Chip Esten.

TVLINE | Do you have a favorite game from the show?
No, I don’t. Not to say a trite cliché, but I like all of them. Each game brings out a specific skill, or you have to think a certain way. The music stuff is great because that’s incredibly hard. Most people can’t do it. I love doing the physical stuff [like] the Sideway Scene. I love doing the pop culture stuff and the impressions. I can’t choose./>

TVLINE | On the flip side, is there one you just dread because it’s difficult?
No. I think I dislike Hoedown, not because Hoedown’s hard. But in a perverse way, I dislike Hoedown because everyone goes, “Ooh! Here comes the Hoedown! That must be hard.” And it isn’t. So just the fact that people have an opinion about it makes me not want to do it. I know it sounds weird. I get stopped in the street. “Hey, Wayne! Do a Hoedown! Irish Drinking Song!” “No, dude, I’m using the bathroom.” So those are probably the ones that I hate the most./>

TVLINE | When you go blank, what do you do?
You don’t go blank./>

TVLINE | Never?!
No, you don’t go blank. You’re not being paid to go blank. And my mind doesn’t work like that. Neither do the other guys’ [minds]. Now, that isn’t out of ego. Your mind doesn’t go blank because you’ve conditioned it not to. Does it go to a place where it’s not the funniest thought? Absolutely. So instead of blank, you may say a thought that is so ordinary or not funny, and the true test is when you say that thing and you go, “Oh, that sucked. But here’s something else…” That’s the real test of our mettle./>

TVLINE | Is there a particularly memorable or funny improv from the new run of episodes that sticks out for you?
Off the top of my head, when [The Walking Dead's Lauren Cohan] kicked me in my chest. When I got a chance to sing with my man from Glee, Kevin, that was a lot of fun. Watching Ryan [Stiles] and Colin [Mochrie] frolic with a pair of nubile female football players, that was funny to me because the entire time they were doing the scene, I was yelling, “Creepy old men! Creepy old men!”/>

TVLINE | Did Lauren actually hurt you?
No, she didn’t hurt me. But I have to tell you, it was a real kick! She made contact. I happened to take it and roll with it, but it wasn’t, “tap, tap, tap.” She kicked me. But that was great. It just shakes everything up./>

TVLINE | On that note, was there a celebrity guest who surprised you by how game or funny they were?
[Hart of Dixie's] Wilson Bethel was the most game and most skilled improviser of the celeb guests that we’ve had on the last run and this run. Out of the entire show. I will go on record as saying that, because he approached everything as not only a game — as evidenced by him drinking the urine test [in his episode] — but also, he was fast. [Snaps fingers] He was fast, and he was calm. That’s the thing that you need when you’re an improviser. He can come back anyway time he wants to!/>

TVLINE | What do we have to do to get Chip Esten to come back? Have you talked to him about the revival?
I, personally, haven’t. I know that Chip is incredibly busy right now with his country show [Nashville] and his new country music career. So I think Chip is good where he is. People have favorites they want… This is a new deal. Ryan, Colin and myself are the backbone, and we’re bringing all these different elements in. If Chip can come and play, that would make me so happy. But we have so many people now that we’ve added to our roster of fourths that people are going to see these stars completely kill it. So they may end up not missing all of the fourth seaters because there is such an amazing roster of people that we have./>
