Jack Black and John Lithgow takes us back to Xanadu

The segment, featuring Jack Black as Orson Welles and John Lithgow as his inspiration, William Randolph Hearst, takes us back to the origins of perhaps the greatest film of all time, and recounts Welles’ realization: “Like, I’m making a kick-ass movie, man. Capeesh?”
