‘Ted Lasso’ star Brendan Hunt 20 Questions: On Coach Beard, Season 2, the Cubs and bowling in Chicago

For a long time, Brendan Hunt lived in orbit of Wrigley Field. He grew up in Chicago, and for a while he lived near Addison and Broadway, a couple of long fly balls from the stadium box office, and also close to Lincoln and Wellington, just a little further afield.

There was another home, on Fletcher, that also negated the need to drive to watch the Cubs.

“Whenever we would go to games, we wouldn’t look for parking,” he said, with a faux-sneer highlight of the final word.

The 49-year-old actor grew up a fan of many sports around his hometown, just not necessarily the one that has helped him — and his facial hair — become famous. Hunt was an adult living in Europe before he fell in love with soccer, and he was middle-aged before he became an assistant coach on a fictional team in London, England.
