Bobcat Goldthwait makes edgy indie movies that tackle taboo subjects. They find good homes at film festivals and arthouse theaters, but now he’s got a weekly TV show to unleash his sensibility on the masses. Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters tells a new story every week, with some outrageous twist.
For example, the premiere episode, “Bubba the Bear.” Seth Green plays an actor whose finds it even harder to get taken seriously when his famous animated character comes to life. Goldthwait may have faced the same battle metaphorically when he transitioned from an ‘80s comic to become a serious director.
Goldthwait sat down with /Film during the Television Critics Association press tour to discus Misfits & Monsters. He told us what some of the other episodes will be about and what they may have in common with his movies, and other movies he admires. Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters premieres Wednesday, July 11 at 10 p.m. on TruTv.
