Kevin Nealon, comedian-actor-animal advocate

Kevin Nealon–the comedian, actor and longtime animal advocate who stars as pot-loving accountant Doug Wilson in the Showtime series “Weeds,” and earlier in his career, enjoyed nearly a decade stint on “Saturday Night Live”–discusses starting to shoot the eighth and what may be the final season of “Weeds,” and why the series may have been under-appreciated. He also addresses some of the animal organizations listed on Nealon’s website as those he’s designated “highly recommend supporting,” including Farm Sanctuary, providing a brief view of its history and purpose. Noting he had just helped Best Friends Animal Society with its new Los Angeles “No Kill” campaign, and speaks to how no kill is far more intricate and rife with challenges than someone might think at first blush. Nealon also explains that while he had many cats and fostered assorted animals earlier in his life, he and his family currently are living sans animals. He also discusses his new stand-up special (and then-forthcoming stand-up appearances in the greater Tampa area), a pilot he shot co-starring Marcia Gay Harden, and what vegetable is his favorite.
