  2. The /Filmcast: After Dark – Ep. 151

    The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Adam Quigley chat with director Rian Johnson about filming his upcoming Looper, starring Bruce Willis, as well as what it was like to direct an episode of Breaking Bad. Also, more talk about theater texters, video games, and Game of Thrones.
