Bullseye with Jesse Thorn

Wallace Shawn, Nick Lowe & Jay Baruchel

Joining us this week is actor Wallace Shawn, whose many film credits include roles in The Princess Bride, the Toy Story films, and My Dinner with Andre. An accomplished playwright and author, Wallace talks to Jesse about his recent collection of essays, Night Thoughts. But first: a visit from Canadian comedian and director Jay Baruchel. Jay talks about directing Goon: Last of the Enforcers and explains what makes the Canadian comedic sensibility so unique. Plus, English singer-songwriter Nick Lowe recalls the 1950s country and western song that changed his life. Finally, Jesse praises a story-driven video game that captures the loneliness and ambiguity of our lives.
