‘The Americans’: Join a live chat with star Matthew Rhys today

He’s a Soviet spy tempted by the American dream, a master of disguises, a loving father and a husband learning to love the woman he was forced by Mother Russia to marry.

Today at 11 a.m. Pacific time, join Matthew Rhys and Times staff writer Glenn Whipp for a live video chat about Rhys’ complicated, committed and, occasionally, comical turn as Cold War-era Russian agent Phillip Jennings. It’s a dream part for an actor, allowing Rhys to assume a number of guises, all of which he pulls off convincingly.

We’ll talk about the best ways to go undercover as an American suburbanite in a time of leg warmers and presidential jelly beans, Rhys’ chemistry with costar Keri Russell and, really, anything you want to ask. There are no secrets here. Everything’s fair game. Join us, won’t you?
