Sure, we all love Josh Radnor on How I Met Your Mother. He’s undeniably hilarious, but did you know that the dude is a one man movie-making machine!? OK, we’re sure he had some help, but it’s still pretty impressive that Josh wrote, directed and starred in Liberal Arts, which is currently taking Sundance by storm. How did he find time to do all that, and be on a hit sitcom?
“Well, I wrote it before I shot it, so I got that out of the way,” he told VH1 News’ very own Janell Snowden. But the simultaneous acting and directing did prove to be a challenge. “I’d done it before, but I’m in about 95 percent of this movie, so that was not easy.” So why not hand the lead role over to someone else, you might ask? It definitely wasn’t narcissism, if that’s what you’re thinking! “This was a part that I wrote that I couldn’t not play it. It was so close to a world I knew.”
But still, it was definitely an exhausting process. “I’m committed to not doing it again. It was just too much,” he admits.
