Anthony Carrigan Breaks Down NoHo Hank’s Emotional
NoHo Hank, the Chechen gangster with a heart of gold and a closetful of skintight
polo shirts, has been the MVP of
from the start.
Anthony Carrigan plays the dissonance between his profession and his personality
with a pitch-perfect affability and an accent that steals every scene.
("I know you look at me and see hard-as-nails criminal, stone-cold killer, ice man.
But, uh, this is lie.") He was famously so funny in his audition that,
even though NoHo Hank was initially supposed to be killed off in the pilot,
creators Bill Hader and Alec Berg decided to keep him on.
At the start, NoHo Hank is revealed to be in a star-crossed relationship with Bolivian gang leader Cristobal Sifuentes (Michael Irby).
