People think they know John C. Reilly. There's something about his performances that seem so familiar, even though he doesn't like to reveal much about himself personally. Marc tries to pull the curtain back a bit, talking with John about Chicago, clowns, Laurel and Hardy, Boogie Nights, Sean Penn, improv, Will Ferrell and more. Also, Brett Gelman stops by to talk about his insane new Adult Swim special. This episode is sponsored by Wiener-Dog from IFC Films, Squarespace, Ministry of Supply and Warby Parker.
Sturgill Simpson has all the makings of a classic country star, complete with an upbringing in coal country, a job on the railroad, and the stamp of approval by country music legends. But as Sturgill tells Marc, he's not interested in being country's savior. He just likes making music, especially for his son. Also, Marc plays a little teaser clip of his upcoming interview with John C. Reilly, in which they talk about John's crazy new futuristic movie The Lobster. This episode is sponsored by Preacher on AMC, Squarespace and Blue Apron.
