#456 — Liam Neeson and Micheal Richardson, John Lee Hancock
The Empire Film Podcast
This week's Empire Podcast sees father-son duo Liam Neeson and Micheal Richardson, stars of next week's Made In Italy, sit down with Chris Hewitt for a soul-searching interview about how close to home that film hit for them. But, because it's us, there's some nonsense about accents and football too. Chris also has a chat with writer-director John Lee Hancock about his new thriller, The Little Things, which brings together acting powerhouses Denzel Washington, Jared Leto, and Rami Malek.
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Ben Travis to exchange nuggets of film information in The Three Fact Structure, talk about the longest films that they love and their strategies for sitting through bum-numbing behemoths, discuss the week's movie news including the Oscar nominations and the sad passing of Yaphet Kotto, and review Zack Snyder's Justice League, The Little Things, and Infinitum: Subject Unknown.
