Rebecca Wisocky plays Hetty Woodstone, the deceased Lady of the Manner, on the new CBS series “Ghosts,” where she’s a stand-out among stand-outs in its impressive comedy ensemble. In this episode, she talks about the absolute pleasure of working on that set and the interesting ways in which the large cast, who more often than not act together in the same shot, find the “mu...

Alex Hassell

Nov 23 • 38:49

Shakespeare on the stage is his first love, but Alex Hassell loves the camera and it loves him back. Currently he plays Vicious in “Cowboy Bebop,” the live-action remake of the popular Japanese anime series. On this episode, he talks about being attracted to roles that are difficult, how years of stripped-down live theater work at The Factory formed him as an actor, why he...

Jon Bernthal

Nov 16 • 42:30

From “The Walking Dead” and “Punisher” to “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Small Engine Repair,” “The Many Saints of Newark,” and this month’s “King Richard,” Jon Bernthal has established himself as the hard-working, all-in, go-to, actor’s-actor of the moment. In this episode, he talks about some of the elements he uses—generosity, energy management, isolation, fear-as-fuel, gr...

Ruth Negga

Nov 9 • 27:22

Ruth Negga loves words. And even someone who doesn’t particularly love words falls in love with the ones spoken by Ruth Negga. It’s not just her Irish accent. She uses words like a master craftsman uses tools. A profound humbleness. No pretension. Just the right tool, used at the right time, to make you understand, to make you believe. Obviously this goes for her acting wo...

Jason Isaacs

Nov 2 • 40:26

After 30 years in the business, with credits ranging from "Angels in America" to the "Harry Potter" films and everything in between, Jason Isaacs has cultivated an approach to the craft of acting aimed at bringing himself fully into the moment. As he talks about in this episode, that approach involves not memorizing his lines, erasing all descriptors in the script, making ...

Bertie Carvel

Oct 26 • 56:25

He already had an Olivier Award for his amazing performance as Miss Trunchbull in “Matilda” when Bertie Carvel made his Broadway debut in that unforgettable role. He went on to win a Tony the next time he stepped on the New York stage, playing a young Rupert Murdoch in “Ink.” Notable recent television credits include the BBC series “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell,” “Doctor...

Vicky Krieps

Oct 19 • 33:21

“Phantom Thread” solidified Vicky Krieps as an acting force to be reckoned with. Her incredible performance in that film felt new, like a beginning of sorts. Her latest is Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Bergman Island.” She talks about figuring out ways to turn the difficulties of that production into opportunities to create something magical. Plus she gives us a glimpse inside her pr...

Noomi Rapace

Oct 12 • 30:16

Noomi Rapace returns to the podcast (first time: Ep. 43) to talk about her new film, the atmospheric, slow-burn thriller “Lamb.” Set in Iceland, which Noomi knows well from her childhood, the film’s landscapes feel almost like supporting characters. She talks about using the emotions they brought up in her, and the delicate way she entered grief into the performance. Afte...

Titane (Special Episode)

Oct 5 • 29:03

Julia Ducournau’s new film “Titane” is, on many levels, an overwhelming cinematic experience. If you’re like me, it might take a second viewing to begin to fully appreciate the astounding work Agathe Rousselle and Vincent Lindon deliver (no pun intended) to us in this film. Lindon is a seasoned actor with decades of accolades and experience in French cinema, and Rousselle ...

Tom Skerritt

Sep 28 • 30:38

Tom Skerritt is the very definition of a veteran actor. “MASH,” “Alien,” “Steel Magnolias,” “Top Gun,” “A River Runs Through It,” and countless other supporting credits in films and television grace his esteemed resume, plus an Emmy for “Picket Fences.” But never a lead role in a feature film! Until now. “East Of The Mountains” just might be 88 year old Tom Skerritt’s best...
