SORRY TO BOTHER YOU’s Cast and Director Talk Back About the Film

SORRY TO BOTHER YOU’s Cast and Director Talk Back About the Film

We’ve been waiting to answer the call from Sorry to Bother You since its debut at Sundance earlier this year, but why wait for our phone to ring when it comes to theaters in July when we can invite the people behind the movie to Nerdist News Talks Back? On today’s very special episode we had the film’s cast and director in to tell us all about the movie, for a conversation you won’t be sorry to hear.

Guest host Hector Navarro and senior Nerdist editor Dan Casey welcomed director Boots Riley, as well as stars Lakeith Stanfield, Omari Hardwick, and Jermaine Fowler to today’s show to discuss the film with the bonkers trailer we’re obsessed with. How much did Riley’s real telemarketing experiences influence the movie? What made him good at that job? How did the rest of the cast get involved with the film? Why was Omari Hardwick so excited to join the project? And what did we learn from their Tessa Thompson and Armie Hammer impressions?

They also told us which of the film’s many homages was accidental, what we can expect from Danny Glover, and why the movie has two different scores and what they mean for the story. And you won’t want to miss when Stanfield makes Hector drop and do push-ups in the middle of the interview…Twice!

Nerdist News Talks Back airs live at 1PM PT every Monday through Thursday on our YouTube and Alpha channels, followed by our big show Nerdist News What the Friday at 1PM PT, exclusively at Alpha. You’ll never be sorry when you tune and join the conversation, and the only thing that bothers us is when you don’t.

Sorry to Bother You opens in select cities on July 6, and in all theaters a week later ion July 13th?

What are you most excited about for the film? Talk back to us about it in the comments below.
