#462 — Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan
The Empire Film Podcast
Wild Mountain Thyme, the Ireland-set rom-com that stars Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan, finally arrives on these shores this week, several months after the trailer first set the interwebs ablaze with much speculation and spoofing of the pair's Irish accents. And on this week's show, Chris Hewitt talks to Blunt and Dornan about the movie, about their accents, about working with Christopher Walken, and more in a fun interview that -- full disclosure -- has some sound issues. Still, we hope you'll have a blast.
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara and James Dyer for a fun episode in which they talk about the greatest movie nerbs (or nerds, if you will) and, philosophically, the very nature of nerbery (or nerdery) itself. They also take a look at the Oscar results, talk about a potential Captain America 4, and then review the newly-minted Best Picture winner, Nomadland, next year's Best Animated Feature winner The Mitchells Vs The Machines, Wild Mountain Thyme, and Michael B. Jordan actioner, Without Remorse. Meanwhile, Chris is wildly inconsistent in his views on pooping into buckets. Baffled? You won't be. Probably.
