If you haven’t checked out Trainwreck (starring Amy Schumer) yet, then you need to get your life. The film is directed by Judd Apatow, who headed a string of low-budget indie flicks like Bridesmaids, Knocked Up, and The-40-Year-Old Virgin. (Eh, you probably haven’t heard of ’em.)
Judd’s currently #LivingForPromo and chatting up Trainwreck all over the planet. He made a stop at a new groundbreaking Comedy Central program called The Whitley Show, an Internet talk show that addresses “the white perspective in a pop culture landscape that’s increasingly dominated by the blacks.” So necessary and important in today’s world, am I right?!
But Judd didn’t know the show’s premise before sitting in the hot seat. And, from the look of his interview, he thinks “The Whitley Show” is 3,000 percent bananas. When asked how the studio reacted to Judd radically showing two white actors kissing on screen—gasp!—he sheepishly replies, “There’s a lot of that in movies and TV. Haven’t you seen Friends?” No, Judd. Can’t say that we have. Is that a new show or something?
The awkward exchange carries on for about 90 seconds. The best part? When The Whitley Show host asks why the hell Judd casted B-List basketball player LeBron James as opposed to an athlete with actual talent, like Dallas Mavericks player Dirk Nowitzki. C’mon, Judd! Do better.
