    I knew this one was going to be epic. I saw the video pop up on my youtube account and immediately hit watch later (was too busy looking something up to actually watch the video at the moment.)

    I also can’t wait until they post the full video of the roundtable with Mahershala Ali, Andrew Garfield, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dev Patel, Casey Affleck and Jeff Bridges.

    Variety’s Actors on Actors videos are pretty good too. A few I’ve watched thus far that I’d recommend is:
    Mahershala Ali and Greta Gerwig
    Dev Patel and Octavia Spencer
    Courtney B. Vance and Tracee Ellis Ross
