The Empire Podcast #103: Josh Brolin, Jack O'Connell

Do you like the base, bass, base, bass?

The Empire Podcast, Josh Brolin and Jack O'Connell interviewsThis week's Empire Podcast is an ear-tickling, can-tastic array of filmic delights. Leading off is one-time Goonie, ex-George Dubya and current Labor Day star Josh Brolin discussing his life and times in a wonderfully witty and muscle-bound 15 minutes.

In hot pursuit down the information superhighway we know as "pod" is Jack O'Connell. The Brit, who delivers a hard-hitting turn in classy prison drama Starred Up, talks about his career to date, a likely breakthrough role in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken and his blazing passion for Derby County, as well as offering up an exclusive This Is England 90 scoop.

There's also the usual heady mix of reviews, views and readers' questions. Spoilers, unlikely British action stars and our favourite aliens all feature. Oh, and the word “Jeddak” makes a welcome return.
