'Skillset,' Episode 5: A Barbershop Barber; Two Voice Actors And Ethan Hawke On Their Hollywood Secrets

MTV chief film critic Amy Nicholson interviews the experts who make your favorite movies

Hi there! Welcome to Episode 5 of "Skillset," the podcast where every guest is an expert — and where every week, they teach us a new way to look at the movies. On this week's show, voice actors James Arnold Taylor and David Kaye voiced the same video game characters for 14 years. Then their characters, Ratchet and Clank, made the leap to film and everything changed. Actor Ethan Hawke reveals his acting secret: marathon running. And barber Todd Lahman tells us which haircutting technique Ice Cube got wrong in Barbershop: The Next Cut.

If you like that, you'll love the week-in-review roundtables of “No Requests Live,” starring all the best and brightest minds at MTV News; peeping in on the not-so-private weekly phone call “Speed Dial With Ira and Doreen"; and the TV-loving dragon-slayers of "Game of Crones."
