Forgive the pun, but it’s a love fest on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast this week. We’re joined with two stars from the film Loving (in theaters November 4), the new Jeff Nichols awards contender, plus a hysterical chat with two of our favorite comedians.
If you’re a comedy nerd, you’ll be excited to hear the first conversation with Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, both starring in Oh, Hello on Broadway. As you’d expect from comedic veterans of SNL, Kroll Show, and Documentary Now!, this chat goes everywhere — from Anthony Weiner to why they’re over zombies to why John is more interesting now that he’s sober. Plus they talk about their new show, in which they play two “deep losers,” as they put it.
Kroll also stars in Loving, which brings us to our second conversation of the week with Ruth Negga, the star of the film. You may have seen her in Preacher or World War Z, but this could be the performance of her career. Loving is the true-life story of Richard and Mildred Loving, whose marriage resulted in a Supreme Court case that forever changed the legality of interracial marriage.
