This guy, Alex Orr, produces ATLANTA and EASY. He's the man.
Have honestly never missed two guys more.
Partying in Chicago tonight! Thank you to everyone watching the show. We love you!
Holy shit, the first episode of INSECURE is funny as f*ck! Kris and I were dying. Thank you Issa Rea and Larry Wilmore for the great new show. Excitedly looking forward to more!
Thank you for all the nice notes and love for EASY! ❤️❤️❤️
The devil pokes his head up. Put him back down in the hole.
Consummate goofball Aislinn Derbez never missed a chance to make me laugh at the monitor, but she also brings a killer performance to EASY episode CONTROLADA. We also made something else together which I'm finishing now, so stay tuned!
I was able to hire 8 of my favorite Chicago artists to do the opening title cards for EASY! I've tagged them with their cards. Check out more of their great work!
Speaking of artist characters and their art, Marc Maron's EASY character, Jacob Malco, is a graphic novelist, and I am still pinching myself that one of my favorite cartoonists, Jeffrey Brown, agreed to create his work for the show. Here are quick sketches of the covers of Malco's 3 books, along with the final cover for OBSCURITY, his latest. Bonus for comics geeks, look for a cameo from the brilliant Chris Ware in the episode!
The supremely talented Dan Romer wrote original scores for two episodes of EASY. Check out CONTROLADA and CHEMISTRY READ to hear his excellent work!
Emily Ratajkowski plays Alison, a grad art student, in EASY. One of the best things about artist characters is you get to make their art! I let Emily, who had an immediate and fascinating take on the character, lead the way with her art. Here she is, in costume, making one of Alison's pieces.
RedEye took my picture. It's fun to be on this side of the camera occasionally. 📷: @lennygilmore
Kiersey Clemons and Jacqueline Toboni dive into a relationship in EASY, while Jaz Sinclair offers support and guidance. Days of shooting were followed by nights of dancing - in this case at the California Clipper.
Opening at the Metrograph in NY on October 14 and available on iTunes the same day! I'll be there, you should be too!
Malin Akerman, Orlando Bloom and Kate Micucci use digital technology to connect in EASY - and analog technology to take pictures at Lost Lake in Chicago. Probably the most fun day of shooting in my career!
Things seem perfect for Aislinn Derbez and Raul Castillo's characters in EASY, but a visit from an old friend (Mauricio Ochmann) reopens wounds that haven't healed. Sounds heavy, but Aislinn is one of the all-time goofballs and kept it light on set.
Watching 8mm 70s porn on a Kodak Brownie next to iTunes SINISTER on a plasma.
Aya Cash and Evan Jonigkeit are expecting a child soon in EASY. Here they are in my photo booth anticipating September 22!
