‘Trial & Error’ Star Nicholas D’Agosto Talks Meisner Technique And Acting Journey

The new series Trial & Error is a comedic homage to true-crime documentaries featuring Nicholas D’Agosto as Josh Segal, a New York lawyer who defends a poetry professor (John Lithgow) who’s accused of murdering his wife. During the TCA interviews, I asked D’Agosto if acting school holds an important part in his creative journey.

“It’s impossible to separate what I do from the teachers I’ve had,” said D’Agosto. “I’ve had many great teachers all at different stages of my life.”

In the video below, D’Agosto reflects on studying the Meisner Technique with William Alderson.

Co-starring Sherri Shepherd and Steven Boyer, Trial & Error debuts Tuesday March 14 on NBC (10/9C).
