Actors on Actors | Line up revealed for Variety interview show

Share this Article:

The line-up for the new series of Variety’s Actors On Actors has been revealed, with high profile movie performers interviewing each other.

Variety’s Actors On Actors is one of the most delightful series you can watch as a film fan. The central conceit is that two actors sit down for a natter about their work, often going off on tangents, acting as a unique insight into the industry.

Generally, the pairings are quite surprising, with the actors concerned often never having worked together or, in some cases, seeming quite random, but each one is fascinating and, usually, an absolute hoot. You can see Kate Winslet shooting the breeze with Gary Oldman, for example, or Beanie Feldstein with Florence Pugh.

This year’s “Actors on Actors” lineup includes:

Margot Robbie (“Barbie”) & Cillian Murphy (“Oppenheimer”)

Robert Downey Jr. (“Oppenheimer”) & Mark Ruffalo (“Poor Things”)

Emily Blunt (“Oppenheimer”) & Anne Hathaway (“Eileen”)

Halle Bailey (“The Little Mermaid”, “The Color Purple”) & Rachel Zegler (“The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes”)

Emma Stone (“Poor Things”) & Bradley Cooper (“Maestro”)

Colman Domingo (“Rustin,” “The Color Purple”) & Jacob Elordi (“Priscilla,” “Saltburn”)

Carey Mulligan (“Maestro”) & Michael Fassbender (“The Killer”)

Jeffrey Wright (“American Fiction”) & Taraji P. Henson (“The Color Purple”)

Greta Lee (“Past Lives”) & Andrew Scott (“All of Us Strangers”)

Annette Bening (“Nyad”) & Julianne Moore (“May December”)

Natalie Portman (“May December”) & Paul Mescal (“All of Us Strangers”)

Alden Ehrenreich (“Fair Play,” “Oppenheimer”) & Da’Vine Joy Randolph (“The Holdovers”)

If you ever have a spare hour or so, watching one of these is a wonderful way to spend it. The first three episodes are available now, with a new episode released daily on the Variety YouTube page.

We now look forward to Variety giving Film Stories a plug in return. Am sure it’s just a matter of time.
