Today, I welcome Malin Akerman into the hot seat. Not only has this fearless beauty starred in countless blockbuster films like WATCHMEN, 27 DRESSES, and RAMPAGE, she also has explored- and conquered- the indie film world and is now producing her own content.
But how did this modern-day movie star really get her start? In this episode, we pull back the curtain on what it’s like to go from- within a year- being broke and sleeping on a futon while fronting a rock band, to booking a series regular role on HBO’s The Comeback. Find out how she handled being asked to improvise on the spot in a chemistry read with Ben Stiller (for the lead in the Farrelly Brother’s THE HEARTBREAK KID) and her fight to be considered for deeper, more nuanced roles like Annie, a woman with alopecia in HAPPY THANK YOU MORE PLEASE and Lara, a strong mother amidst the chaos in HBO’s BILLIONS.
