Ari Graynor on ‘Bad Teacher’, Her Career and Auditioning (Video)

Ari Graynor stars in Bad Teacher, a single-camera comedy based on the film of the same name. It premiered last night to decent ratings so that’s good news for her because I think she’s great.

The show is about an always-inappropriate, fearless and unapologetic former trophy wife who masquerades as a teacher in order to find a new man after her wealthy husband leaves her. Sara Gilbert, Ryan Hansen, David Alan Grier and Kristin Davis also star.

She recently did a SAG Foundation conversation about her career and how and why she became an actor, auditions, Broadway and more!

Bad Teacher airs on CBS on Thursdays at 9:30pm.
