Don't even try to pin down Chris Weitz's career, it's a fruitless endeavor. From "American Pie" to "About a Boy" to writing a Star Wars movie, to helming a fact based thriller like "Operation Finale", the only consistency is quality.
Chris joins Josh on this episode to reflect on his unusual childhood (and fascinating parents), the lessons learned from directing "The Golden Compass", how he sold Disney on [SPOILER ALERT] killing off every major character in a Star Wars movie, to directing Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley in his latest.
