WTF with Marc Maron

Episode 880 - Richard Jenkins

Richard Jenkins is one of the great character actors working today but he was a late starter in show business. As he continues to rack up awards and accolades for his performances, including his latest in The Shape of Water, Richard reflects on the early days of his acting ambitions in Illinois corn country and the intervention by his high school English teacher that got him on his way. He also talks about his favorite collaborators, including the Coen Brothers, the Farrelly Brothers and Frances McDormand. This episode is sponsored by the new film I, Tonya, Baskets on FX, and SimpliSafe.
