The New Hollywood is a podcast interview show. Host Brian Flaherty interviews the Actors, Directors, Writers and Musicians who are breaking the rules and carving out a new path for others to follow, not unlike the great auteurs of the 70’s.
Today on The New Hollywood Podcast, writer/director Adam McKay. Adam co-wrote and directed Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, The Other Guys and Anchorman 2. We discuss his early days in the Chicago improv scene, his days on SNL, not being able to get Anchorman made until Will Ferrel popped in Old School, making Anchorman and lots of other cool stuff. Please enjoy the crap out of this one.
