A year ago Kumail Nanjiani's career was going great. Between a hugely successful stand-up career and a role on the hit series "Silicon Valley", not to mention various podcasts and supporting film roles, he wasn't wanting for much.
And yet, here were are in the thick of awards season and Nanjiani has found himself lauded left and right for a whole new side of his career -- starring (and co-writing with wife Emily Gordon) in the hit film, "The Big Sick".
On this episode of "Happy Sad Confused", Najiani joins Josh to discuss his newfound career as a leading man in the movies, how it's affected his career, how it's changed his work on "Silicon Valley", plus Josh and Kumail chart out what kind of roles the actor/comedian should snag in the next "Avatar" and "Star Wars" films.
