I Went on SmartLess and Left Even Smarter
As their guest this week, I had an enlightening talk with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, & Sean Hayes
For today's Rumble with Michael Moore, I'm going to share with you a podcast I just did where I was the guest and not the host. I liked the tables being turned, with three of our greatest wits on the other side of that table.
"SmartLess" is one of the funniest and, well, smartest podcasts around. It's hosted by the brilliant Jason Bateman (Arrested Development, Ozark, Juno), the incredible Will Arnett (BoJack Horseman, Arrested Development, Blades of Glory) and the epic Sean Hayes (Will & Grace, An Act of God, Promises, Promises).
I had a fun time with them, talking about things we rarely discuss on Rumble and which I hope may be somewhat revelatory to you.
You'll learn how I beat Sean to air the first ever "gay kiss" on primetime TV; how Will and I knew of the same Toronto hotel back in the day when my friends and I drove over from Flint to Canada to practice avoiding the draft and catch a Maple Leafs game; and about the day Jason's producer on Arrested Development called me to guest star on their show and I was too scared to do it — so they hired an actor to play “Michael Moore” and went ahead with the storyline anyway!
All this and more on "SmartLess" — here for a guest appearance on Rumble! Listen to it at the top of this post, or check out their website to find it on your favorite podcast platform.
My thanks to Will, Sean, and Jason!
And I’ll be back with more to share with you over the weekend here on my Substack site.
