214: Blue Ruin With Macon Blair

Comedians Matt Lieb and OJ Patterson join this week with Brendan returning as we welcome Macon Blair to talk about his starring role in Blue Ruin. We open the show welcoming Brendan back to the Frotquarters for the first time as a married-ass dude. He tells about finally getting to score and we talk about which jams got the people on the dance floor at his wedding, and whether he kept his “Return of the Mack” streak alive, leading to an impromptu sing-along sesh, as often happens on the Frotcast. After that we talk about Stephen A. Smith’s criteria for when it’s okay to hit a woman, and Whoopi Goldberg’s subsequent elaboration on it.
About 30 minutes in, we bring on Macon Blair, who tells us about his critically-acclaimed star turn in Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin. He tells how he created such a realistic puking effect (spoiler alert, by actually puking) and how he handled the pressure of acting in a film he new his friend had bet his entire life savings on. After that, we talk about Blue Ruin and read your emails. Frot on! Tell your friends! Write us reviews! frotcast@gmail.com, 415 275 0030
