dub1808:Pizza rolls or pizza bagels?

The rolls.

15chainz: In a battle royale of all the characters you've played, who would come out victorious?


Um... hahaha.

I guess, you gotta go for the superhero, i guess?

WeeklyHeroin: Hello, How was it like starring in Louie? What is Louis CK like? Also, who's the most interesting actor or director you have worked with? Thanks! And good luck with the new film!

He's the best. Louis is the best. I did that show cuz of him. We have a kindred spirit. And I'd do it again in 2 seconds. I'd love to bang heads with him again, he's amazing.

Interesting is a weird word to use... you know, David O. Russell is by far, he used the most different way to shoot, because it was done like a play, lit 360 degrees, so everyone is on, in character, in ready and prepared, all the time, like being in a 3-dimensional theater. I've never run from the camera so much as I did on that, because I ran out of material, so I'd have to run to the bathroom, or go to craft services where they couldn't shoot me because it wasn't "period" - that was the most interesting shooting environment, for sure.

GangsterJawa: If you could have shawarma with anyone in history, who would it be?


That's the question?

Who would it be with in all of history? Um...

I'd like to have shawarma with, probably, either Wolfgang Amadeus or Beethoven. Can I do both? A shawarma party. They have composed music that has affected my spirit until the day I die.

Piccolanippy: Hi Jeremy! I love your work, will you ever do a musical movie or even a Broadway play?

Yes. And yes.

Piccolanippy: Hey Jeremy will you ever Instagram those photos of Robert Downey Jr washing your car?

Hahaha... I don't know what you're talking about.

marsh-a-saurus: Hi Jeremy! First off this is the first ama I've been on time for, so my question for you is.. What was it like to play Jeffery Dahmer in Dahmer?

Terrifying. Disturbing. That kind of wraps it up. And challenging.

g0newick3d: What was it like working with Mary Elizabeth Winstead? Thanks and can't wait to see the movie!

Ah! Mary's great. She was a tremendous get for us, on this movie. One of the reasons why I wanted to do the movie was because of that role and because of Rosemary DeWhit's role, and wanted to strengthen those roles, because they were strong women roles. I think there's a huge lack of that in cinema. That was one of the main reasons. And once we got Mary, it's a tricky role to pull off, especially as a young editor, and she's great. We had a lot of fun. She's smart, giving, and thoughtful, and I think she's tremendous in the movie.

kenzkoff: If I participate in #MondayLungeDay every Monday, will I become as fabulous as you?


As long as you switch legs!


You gotta switch it up, or you'll be very lopsided. That's all I gotta say about that.

pips35 : Hi Jeremy, what made you decide to take on the role of Gary Webb in Kill The Messenger?

First, it was the character, I thought, was rich, and complex, and flawed as a hero, which is very attractive to me, because it's very real to me and human. And the story and its themes of David & Goliath, an everyman in extraordinary circumstances, I'm attached to these themes, and these stories being true, a story that broke 70 miles from where I grew up and then not knowing about it, became a character I wanted to play to a character I had to play, and a story I had to tell.
