My Crazy Fun Interview with Casey Affleck for “Triple 9!” Dad Bod and Rainbows! 


The moment I walked into the room, Casey Affleck gave me a great big hug! I just interviewed the actor last month for “The Finest Hours” so yeah, we’re like tight buds now HA!

But this interview is all over the place in a good way! Affleck was in a playful mood that Friday morning. We talked about everything including me starring in the movie! Only if I play Kate Winslet!

Oh, and wait until you see his reaction when I told him he showed his dad bod in his new crime thriller “Triple 9!”

Jesse and Daryl together in one room! How lucky can I get? “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) and “The Walking Dead’s” Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) star as brothers in John Hillcoat’s new crime thriller “Triple 9.”

I sat down with the actors for this fun interview which consists of a cute puppy and lots and lots of rainbow!

Oh by the way, these two are one of the rare gentlemen actors who actually stood up to greet me! How lucky can I get part 2?
