Minnie Driver talks new show 'Speechless' and the Emmy's on Jimmy Kimmel



- Says she's sick of seeing stories where a disabled character "can't wait to die"
- She plays the mom and her character is kind of a pain in the ass
- Micah Fowler plays her son. The actor actually has cerebral palsy
- The show is more of a comedy than drama



- Says an actress from the show Mr. Robot (refers to actress as "Mrs. Robot") went in front of her, Viola Davis, the cast of Veep, while they all were standing in line waiting to get their pictures taken.
