Listen: Mr Ben Stiller, Josh Horowitz, Patricia Arquette discussed on Happy Sad Confused
"Today on happy set. Confused. Ben Stiller goes dramatic with escape at data Maura. Hey, guys. I'm Josh Horowitz. Welcome to another dish of happy. Sad confused. The man of the hour today. It's not me. It's not you. What's put the focus where it should be? Mr Ben Stiller is making his debut on happy sad confused today. And I could not be more thrilled. People always ask me who have an I had on than I always draw blank. And I never know. But come to think of it. Ben Stiller was one of the top people, frankly that I've always wanted to have on the podcast, I special I knew I I appreciated and enjoyed the work of Ben Stiller as we all do. But when I really dug into the research and went back and thought about it. I realize his work, frankly is a huge part of my wealth of film and comedy of the whilst twenty plus. Years even further back the Ben Stiller show Zululand or tropic thunder. The cable guy so many great things. Those those are just the film directed not to mention all the amazing work. He's done in front of the camera. So this was a real great pleasure to have been on the podcast. He couldn't have been more open, and honest, and funny, and smart, and all the all the things you wanted to guest. So super proud of this conversation with the great actor, and filmmaker Mr Ben Stiller, and as I said the reason for him coming in is not a comedy, and certainly he's balanced dramatic work with comedy over his career. But he's never done it behind the camera. His directing work has always been deciding the sidedly comedic, and that has changed with his newest project. It is called escape at Dan Amora, and it is a seven part miniseries on Showtime at abuse November eighteenth, check it out. I've watched the entire thing, and it is an arresting fascinating true-life tale. If you don't remember. If it doesn't ring a bell back in twenty fifteen upstate New York. There was a prison break. This isn't ruin anything helps to have a little bit of context than it. Kind of is introduced in the opening moments of the series, two inmates escaped, and they skipped with the help of someone working on the inside. And the three people were talking about here are played by some of the best in the business. It's benishi del Toro, Paul Daino and Patricia Arquette and special points. Ben Stiller for casting Patricia Arquette retaining after their previous work together on for disaster. I mean, come on doesn't get better than that. So exceptionally well acted wonderfully atmospheric, and well paced Stiller clearly has the chops as director, but clearly can commit himself to dramas if he wants like if you wants to just totally commit to this. For the rest of his career. He'd be I think one of our better dramatic directors too. So what a jerk for being talented in all aspects of his career, but kudos to him on this new this new venture escape down more as I said, it's November eighteenth is the first of seven episodes premiere on Showtime, definitely well worth checking out other than that other things to mention gosh, we very busy here at MTV.."
