TheWrap’s interview studio at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival ended in the best way possible — with an interview that went completely off the rails.
“You Can Choose Your Family” stars Jim Gaffigan and Logan Miller, as well as director Miranda Bailey, joined TheWrap to discuss the comedy in Austin Texas, and from the moment the group sat down, Gaffigan, Miller and Bailey took control of the interview in the best way possible, and TheWrap’s film reporter Beatrice Verhoeven could barely squeeze a question in.
The conversation went from comparing the film to “Call Me by Your Name,” where Miller said he was like Timothee Chalamet while Gaffigan was like Armie Hammer, to Gaffigan’s wrinkly shirt and why Matthew McConaughey has to star in so many Lincoln commercials.
Gaffigan dangled his microphone by the cord and Bailey laid down in the middle of the interview, and even walked off set when Gaffigan started pondering the philosophical nature behind what film is all about.
Bailey assured, however, that even though Miller and Gaffigan were acting bonkers throughout the interview, that filming was “all business.”
“You Can Choose Your Family” stars Gaffigan as a father whose life is soon turned upside down when his son discovers that his dad has a second family. Anna Gunn, Danielle Campbell, Samantha Mathis and Alex Karpovsky also star.
The comedy premiered at SXSW on March 11 and does not have a U.S. release date yet.
