"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" never should have made it to the air. And Rob McElhenney surely never should have been running a show with no experience. But sometimes when you throw the rulebook out something great can emerge. Rob joins Josh on this episode of "Happy Sad Confused" to talk about his unlikely path to success, why he's passionate about his new TV series, "Mythic Quest: Raven's Banquet", and what happened to that "Minecraft" movie of his.

2019-12-1000:41:41

It's all happening seemingly all at once for Yahya Abdul Mateen II. Just a few years ago, he was laid off as a city planner. Acting wasn't part of the plan.

Ed Harris

2019-12-0600:44:08

Ed Harris is of course the man for the job.

Rupert Grint

2019-11-2000:50:241

Edward Norton

Edward Norton

2019-11-0701:09:53

Edward Norton chooses his projects deliberately. You can tell from from his acting choices and even moreso from his directing career. His second directing effort, "Motherless Brooklyn", has arrived in theaters 19(!) years after his first time behind the camera, "Keeping the Faith". Edward joins Josh to discuss his wayward path to acting, working with legends like David Fincher & Marlong Brando, and why Bruce Springsteen is as much an inspiration to him as any artist.

Willem Dafoe, Vol. II

Willem Dafoe, Vol. II

2019-10-2300:42:46

With a career as storied as Willem Dafoe's, it's no wonder he's back on "Happy Sad Confused"! This time, he's got another award worthy performance to talk about--the grizzled foil to Robert Pattinson in the moody and haunting film, "The Lighthouse".
Josh welcomes two of his favorite guests back to "Happy Sad Confused" this week! You've never seen Timothee Chalamet quite like this in "The King" and we've got co-writer (and co-star) Joel Edgerton to thank for it.
Cillian Murphy

Cillian Murphy

2019-10-1000:43:253
