Ben Platt discusses season 2 of “The Politician” and his character, Payton Hobart, going head-to-head with legendary actors Judith Light and Bette Midler. “Her work is always spectacular. She still has such an appreciation and a joy for it every day,” Ben says of Light. “She’s just the kindest, warmest Jewish mother I could ask for.” On being scene partners with Midler, Platt reveals, “For the first couple of days it was incredibly daunting and scary, but then it was just so fun to get, sort of, get in the mud with her so to speak. She’s just so open and comedically brilliant. It was a dream come true. They were spectacular in the show.”
