Jason and Ivan Reitman are two of most successful directors in Hollywood. They also happen to both be on Marc Maron’s podcast this week.
First up is Jason Reitman, director of Juno and Up in the Air, who tells Marc about what it’s like to be the son of a phenomenally successful filmmaker and how it took him a long time to realize he wanted to be a filmmaker as well. Jason and Marc also talk about the projects he’s chosen, carving his own path in Hollywood in his father’s shadow, and what made gravitate toward projects like Thank You For Smoking and Labor Day and not, say, Dude Where’s My Car?. Listen here.
