Another favorite from the Bullseye archives this week. This time: Roy Wood Jr.! He's a comedian. You've probably seen him as a correspondent on "The Daily Show."

It's calle ...…
 
Has Stphen Root, the actor, had a million parts? It's not a million, right? Ok. It's 236. Still: wow! Root is is the kind of character actor that can take even the most basic, dreary TV show or movie and light it up. One or two scenes with Stephen in it, say a by the book police procedural or a saccharine sitcom, and that's all you'll talk abou ...…

Our dead pilot this month is Birthright written by Joel Kim Booster (Comedy Central, Conan). We recorded this one live from SF Sketchfest! Birthright is based in part on Joel’s real life.

Jez Butterworth is a veteran of both stage and screen, he's written about a dozen films along with his seven plays. You can see the wisdom that only experience can bring in action during "The Ferryman," his latest play that's now on Broadway. A younger playwright might have the same grand vision as Butterworth did for the production, but would ...…
 
If you're in Hollywood, the stereotype goes that you're either a character actor or a *star*. A character actor shows up in a couple scenes for about five minutes, and, even in that small moment, they make the film. Tony Shalhoub has done that plenty of times. While a star, of course, is someone you can build an whole movie or TV show around. T ...…
 
A warning about this episode, which originally aired in 2017: the second half of this interview contains some honest and frank talk about sexual assault. Stephanie Beatriz stars in Brooklyn Nine Nine as Detective Rosa Diaz - easily the toughest cop in the precinct - she's brave, serious, and rides a motorcycle. The sixth and newest season just ...…
 
We've got a favorite from the Bullseye archives to kick off the week: Elvis Costello. Costello grew up surrounded by music.

As Costello describes in his memoir, Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink, he didn't intend to make music himself, but ...…

In the acclaimed 2017 movie "Mudbound" he played a world war two veteran returning home in Mississippi. In "Straight Outta Compton," he sort of stole every scene as Eazy-E. ...…
 
Ricky Jay died last month. He was 72. Ricky was a writer. And an actor. And a magician. One of the greatest sleight of hand performers ever, actually. He could throw a playing card almost 200 ft at 90mph. He could pierce a watermelon with the Jack of Hearts. He was also about as close as anyone could get to being a regular on Bullseye. So we we ...…
 
Our dead pilot this month is The Prince by Mehar Sethi (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Bojack Horseman). When Dave Whitney, a ruthless corporate fixer in Texas, is passed over for a promotion in his family's oil business, he decides to take the whole company down.

He's an actor and comic and host of the hit comedy game show Billy on the Street - where he and a camera crew accost random New Yorkers with questions about Hocus Pocus, Meryl Streep and more. Yes, it sounds great. If you've seen it, you know ...…
 
Tim Blake Nelson is a master of his craft: a character actor with over 80 credits to his name.

On his own, he's a visionary bandleader with over half a dozen s ...…
 
First up this week: Steven Yeun! Fans of The Walking Dead know and love Steven for his time on the show as the beloved Glenn Rhee. Lately, though, he's taken on some even more thrilling roles.

Our pilot this month is so great and so special! It’s written by Morgan Murphy (2 Broke Girls, Jimmy Kimmel Live) and it’s called Talk Nerdy to Me. The log line for this one is a squad of four dorky but brilliant women sharing a house in Venice, CA deal with VR porn, leaky rowboats, people urinating while rollerblading, and other facts of life ...…
 
It's a rare honor for a guest to be on Bullseye three times, but Swamp Dogg deserves it. He's a psychedelic soul singer with a career that's now spanned six decades.

This week, we're thrilled to welcome Nicole Holofcener back on the show - probably one of the most underrated filmmakers around. Her movies are quiet, sort of understated.

We're replaying two recent favorites this week: first up, Amy Sedaris! Amy's made a career playing characters - and we say this with absolutely *zero* shade intended - people who are kind of grotesque and weird. The weirder and grosser the better - take Jerri Blank on Strangers with Candy or Mimi Kanasis on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, too. But o ...…
 
This week: Boz Scaggs. The one and only! The hitmaker behind "Lido Shuffle" and "Lowdown" and so much more talks with Jesse about his more than five decade career in music. Lately, like a lot of rockers his age, his work has steered more towards the basics: some blues, some covers here and there, lots of stripped down instrumentation. But behin ...…
 
FKAjason and Roy “Charlemagne” Cleary are back again with more classic Booster Gold and Captain Atom! First they discuss “Invasion from Dimension X” from Booster Gold (vol 1) #21 by Dan Jurgens, Ty Templeton, Gene D’Angelo, Steve Haynie, and Barbara Randall.
