Film and television production is on hold, but Jeffrey Wright is using the time to focus on his community. Jeffrey tells Marc how his attempt to help out a friend led him to a Brooklyn-wide effort to keep neighborhood restaurants afloat while feeding frontline workers. They also talk about ancestry, working in prison, Angels in America, Basquiat, Batman, Muddy Waters, and the great acting lesson Jeffrey learned from Christopher Walken. This episode is sponsored by Squarespace, Capterra, and HBO Max.
Inaugural guest and "Westworld" star Jeffrey Wright explains how 'Apocalypse Now' (1979) and 'Sid and Nancy' (1986) changed his life and drops some tidbits about his upcoming role in a mega franchise.

He’s an amazing actor who can play any role—right now he’s on HBO’s Westworld and making the new Batman. And he’s a Brooklyn guy who’s working on helping some great local restaurants get meals to several Brooklyn hospitals. We talk about how he’s trying to make a difference during Corona times and about his philosophies around acting and about what’s going on with the new Batman.
