The Talk: Tate Donovan Argo
Tate said that he and the Argo team knew the movie would be great, but you can never be sure what will come out of it. He said everyone who worked on it was fantastic, but they did not know if it would connect with audiences.
Donovan said even he was on the edge of his seat when he saw the finished product, despite the fact that the real life ending is well-known.
The Talk: Argo Method Acting
His Argo character, Bob, was hiding at an ambassador’s home in the movie. How did director Ben Affleck prepare the six actors playing hostages? He put them in a house together for six days with no Internet and no contact with the outside world.
Donovan said he was reluctant, but it really brought the castmates together as they got ready for their roles. “We drank a lot,” he said.
Sharon Osbourne and Julie Chen compared this type of method acting to the CBS reality series Big Brother.

In the NBC drama Deception, Tate Donovan’s character Edward is a whistleblower. He finds himself turning his back on his own family, and he said the show has something for everyone, including a mystery and a love story.

The Talk: Tate Donovan & Victor Garber
Argo co-star Victor Garber is working with Tate once again in Deception, as his father, which Garber apparently resents since they are not that far apart in age.
In Deception, Edward’s past includes getting away with murder. He said that as an actor, you do not focus on judging your character, but focusing on what the character wants and how he will get it.
New episodes of Deception can be seen Monday nights on NBC.
