Amanda Seyfried, she of the golden hair and piercing baby blues and the ability to predict the weather with her breasts in Mean Girls, is one tough, outspoken, droll lady in person. Tell that to her husband, actor Thomas Sadoski, and you can feel him beaming over the phone.
“It’s all the reasons I fell in love with her, too. She’s the real deal, a person of tremendous integrity,” he says. “I don’t know I’ve ever met anyone with more. She is exactly who she says she is.”
The same can be said about Sadoski, a Tony-winning actor who’s currently appearing on stage in the new play White Noise and also costars on the CBS sitcom Life in Pieces. He’s forthright, candid, and doesn’t suffer fools, in Hollywood or otherwise.
“I have a low tolerance for bullshit in myself and the world around me,” says the
Sadoski spends much of his time raising money for the charity War Child and speaking out on behalf of ISIS victims or those whose prison sentences are inversely proportional to their crimes. But somehow, he manages to do it in a non gag-inducing way. Sadoski, who goes by Tommy, is the same guy who, on Instagram, searingly defended actress Jessica Walters when she recounted, in a New York Times interview, being verbally harassed on the set of Arrested Development. “I worked in shitty greasy-spoon kitchens growing up: it wasn’t acceptable behavior THERE and most of us were on HEAVY DRUGS. It certainly isn’t acceptable for some man-baby millionaire to do on a cozy ass tv show set,” he wrote on Instagram.
Because Sadoski has empathy and compassion and a broader view of the world, he’s raising his and Seyfried’s kid to be the same. His daughter will always be aware that not every child grows up on a lush, dreamy farm in the Catskills surrounded by horses, chickens, dogs, and a hell of lot of nature. She’ll have perspective, thanks to parents who are in the trenches with her, instead of outsourcing childcare so they can shoot films in distant lands. Ask Sadoski, 42, about fatherhood, and he turns into a melting pile of vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate sprinkles. And yet, the Texan “chokes up” every time his daughter sees something new and yells “wow.” Says her dad: “I’m a total softie. It’s that moment of discovery.”
First off, your new play has gotten insanely great reviews. Congrats.
Thank you! I frankly and I know this sounds pretentious — the experience has been so important artistically, to be part of telling this story. Everyone can have a flurry of opinions. That’s what it’s there to do.
How does it feel up there on stage?
This is the stuff I was put here to do. If such a thing exists. It’s the place I feel the most connected and at home, being on stage in New…
