Corridor joined the HBO Max hit collection, which wrapped up its second season on Dec. 15, only a few years after graduating from Northwestern College and pursuing an appearing profession. Like his costar Mitchell Slaggert, the actor — whose mother and father are “Seinfeld” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus and “Saturday Night time Stay” alum Brad Corridor — auditioned for a special position than the one he landed, however he admits he liked the problem of enjoying his detested character.
“It is a enjoyable little problem to play somebody that you just’re not rooting for in a manner that’s entertaining and likewise in a manner that is humorous.”

However Corridor says he welcomes the criticism of his character and relationship with Scott’s Whitney as a result of he is conscious Andrew is “virtually solely unlikeable.”
“He is fairly douchey, he is caught up, he is tremendous aggressive, clearly there are some redeeming moments for him, however on the entire, you are not precisely rooting for him, which is enjoyable,” he shares. “It is a enjoyable little problem to play somebody that you just’re not rooting for in a manner that’s entertaining and likewise in a manner that is humorous. [It] was difficult in an thrilling manner. After which, in fact, the writers of the present made it tremendous straightforward for me as a result of all the pieces they write may be very humorous. So all I needed to do was not f*ck it up.”
Many of the hate towards Andrew stems from his situationship with Whitney and the truth that the 2 began out as frenemies. “It is clearly a very attention-grabbing one as a result of it is atypical of how most relationships are in that it is sort of a love-hate kind of factor,” Corridor explains of Andrew and Whitney’s “uncooked attraction.” “However I feel a whole lot of their attraction is [because] they’re each tremendous aggressive . . . once they change into romantic is once they even have a whole lot of enjoyable collectively, [and] once they’re kind of virtually taking jabs at one another or being aggressive.”

It has sort of gone a little bit too far and Andrew clearly is starting to change into a little bit connected. So yeah, I feel there is a massive aid, not just for the viewers but in addition for Whitney.”
Although it is clearly the top of the highway for Whitney and Andrew, Corridor hopes he’ll have the ability to reprise his position in “The Intercourse Lives of Faculty Women” season three — which HBO Max only in the near past greenlit. “Oh yeah, I undoubtedly would like to return,” Corridor says. “I will stroll within the background of a scene if I’ve to. The present is a lot enjoyable. And there is hope for [Andrew] as a result of it’s totally faculty in that you would be able to’t actually keep away from your exes on a regular basis since you’re at school collectively. I do suppose there’s sort of comedy available there for positive.”
