Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia can now finally join the prestigious ranks of John C. Reilly, Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson as being some of the lucky few to be invited to hit After Hours programming “Up Close with Josh Horowitz.” While we were disappointed by the lack of cuddling and massages this time around, we really think we cracked to the center of the duo’s new film, “Sleepwalk With Me,” in the latest short.
No topics were off limits in this in-depth interview, from Horowitz’s dirty glasses to spelling Birbiglia’s last name to just how easy it is to learn to drive. Glass and Birbiglia also spent some boring time discussing their new movie, which had a record-breaking opening weekend last week. But hey, we can talk about that any time. This is the time to get up close.
We also really appreciate the many ways Birbiglia has taught us how to use a camera during this segment. You can use it to help you tie your tie, block it with your body to let your friend know he’s being boring or, best yet, use it to perfect your suggestive glances. No wonder it took so long to make “Sleepwalk With Me.” (Just kidding!)
“Sleepwalk With Me” expands to 20 theaters this weekend, so make sure you go check it out.
