EP 285: Billy Bob Thornton and Mark Duplass on Indie Film, Amazon's Goliath, and TV's Renais
Billy Bob Thornton and Mark Duplass talk about Season 2 of Amazon's most binged show Goliath. Billy reveals why he’s so attracted to outsider roles, what he found particularly appealing about playing an attorney, and how the show’s creators David E. Kelley and Jonathan Shapiro (both former attorneys) helped him prepare for the courtroom. He talks about some of his own favorite movie lawyers, the death of independent film, and how television has come a long way since his early days on the 90’s sitcom Evening Shade. Mark Duplass talks about his excitement to play a bad guy on Goliath, what it's like to be one half of the acclaimed filmmaking duo The Duplass Brothers, why it took a while for them to learn to “individuate,” and what it's like to work as an actor on another director's set.
Season 2 of Goliath is available on Amazon beginning Friday, June 15. For more information, visit http://a.co/i02m9ob and follow Mark Duplass on twitter at @MarkDuplass. Today’s podcast was sponsored by Legal Shield.
