LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Who canceled that got me here?" Ray Romano joked as the first of The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable series kicked off with some of TV's top dramatic actors.

Humor dominated the hour-long discussion at the Chateau Marmont, during which the "Men of a Certain Age" co-star traded yuks with Matthew Fox ("Lost"), Matt Bomer ("White Collar"), Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood"), Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") and Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad").

WHEN YOU GUYS WATCH YOUR PERFORMANCES, WHAT DO YOU

CRITICIZE MOST?

Matthew Fox: I don't (watch). Never. I'm a fan of the show and I watched early on because I wanted to see how it was put together. But I don't find any benefit in seeing what I'm doing.

Matt Bomer: Sometimes. You want to see the character come to life in an authentic way and hope you're not mugging or being inorganic.

Alexander Skarsgard: I watch it and I'm blown away by my own performance! (Laughs.) No, every single scene, I'm like, "Oh man, way too big. That look is so redundant. Again with that flat delivery?" I really don't enjoy it.   Continued...
