Empire Podcast #410: Ben Schwartz

Ben Schwartz

by Chris Hewitt |
Published on

This week's pod sees the team — Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Amon Warmann — recording remotely once again as they discuss the week's movie news (note: this was recorded before the sad death of the great Brian Dennehy), review Stargirl, Coffee & Kareem, and Love. Wedding. Repeat, and tackle listener questions about their DVD collections and the best films-within-films. Also, the new fun fact section sees some major revelations, a huge tangent (even for us), and another brand-new name.

And Chris is joined, remotely, of course, by the wonderful Ben Schwartz for a jam-packed interview in which they talk (a bit) about Ben's new film, Standing Up, Falling Down, his improv shows with Thomas Middleditch, and life under lockdown. And Chris recommends that Ben watches a Walter Matthau classic. Give it a listen to find out which one. Enjoy.
