Few filmmakers in recent memory have begun a career with a 1-2 punch as provocative and memorable as Ari Aster. Last year he disturbed audiences with "Hereditary" and this summer he's taking them on a decidedly long and strange trip to Sweden in "Midsommar". Ari joins Josh this week to talk about his beginnings, his unique sense of humor, and Albert Brooks? Yeah, you read that right.
Jesse Eisenberg, Vol. II
It's been five years since Jesse Eisenberg dropped by the podcast so there's a lot of ground to cover in this fun fast paced conversation -- from his new film "The Art of Self-Defense", why it took ten years to get the gang back together for a "Zombieland" sequel, and that time Bob Weinstein threatened his life!
Daisy Ridley, Vol. II
It's a special day when the voice of "Happy Sad Confused" (well, besides Josh) stops by for a chat. On this visit, Daisy Ridley talks about her big leap, starring in a film all her own with "Ophelia", plus an update on what to expect in "The Rise of Skywalker" and Daisy's very late take on "Game of Thrones".
The self-professed "feral" actress known as Annabelle Wallis pays a visit to "Happy Sad Confused" to talk about her new Showtime mini-series "The Loudest Voice", landing a role on "Peaky Blinders" despite Cillian Murphy's protests, and whether Tom Cruise texts her emojis.
You may know Jack Reynor from "Transformers: Age of Extinction" or "Sing Street" or as the guy who nearly was Han Solo but this summer you'll know him as the star of the super scary "Midsommar", from Ari Aster (director of last year's critical fave "Hereditary"). Jack joins Josh to talk about being a certified film geek from the start, embarrassing auditions for the likes of Andy Serkis, and why superheroes might not be for him.
