Jason Mantzoukas Interview

People who watch lots of movies start to recognize character actors from role to role, especially in comedies, when a funny guy or woman keeps showing up. Jason Mantzoukas has been one of those reliable actors stealing scenes in movies like Baby Mama, The Dictator, The House, Sleeping with Other People and more. But in The Long Dumb Road, Mantzoukas finally takes the lead.

The Long Dumb Road premiered at Sundance this year, and is now playing select theaters and VOD. In the film, Mantzoukas plays Richard, a mechanic who, just after getting fired, helps Nat (Tony Revolori) with a broken down car and rides with him to college as they have a series of road trip misadventures. Mantzoukas took the time to speak with /Film about his lead role, his role in John Wick 3, and of course, the beloved movie podcast How Did This Get Made?, on which he’s been a regular with Paul Scheer and June Diane Raphael since 2010.

New Blu-ray Releases Blackkklansman

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Remember, kids: heroes live forever, but physical media never dies.

Zoo Trailer

If you read that headline and thought, “I’ve already seen Shaun of the Dead,” that’s totally fair. However, the premise for a new indie thriller called Zoo takes things beyond an imitation of the beloved Edgar Wright comedy. You see, this couple being stuck together is only one half of the story.

What follows is a standoff to see which couple can tolerate each other longer before taking matters into their own hands.

Watch the Zoo trailer below and see what happens. Read More »
