Adam and Donal get right into discussing the new FX series, ‘Terriers’. They both agree that FX has good billboards, but Adam says he didn’t know what the show was about. They also talk about Donal’s work in Ghost Rider, and Adam complains about a movie mistake that no one on the set managed to figure out. Donal says the people on set were incredibly nice and friendly, and that he’d always ‘rather work in that [environment] than in something pretentious.’
Adam gets on the topic of Hydrogen bombs and warheads, and points out that even though the bombs have destructive powers, we blow up more on our own soil than in other countries. He also starts talking about the WWII Pacific Theater that his uncle experienced first hand, and he and Donal discuss the mentality of the Japanese military at the time.
Jumping back into the personal journey of Donal Logue, he talks about his parents and growing up originally in Boston. At a certain point, he moved to Calexico, which sends Adam into a jag about cities with ‘spanishy sounding names.’ Adam asks Donal about attending Harvard, and Donal says he thought he was going into politics until his friends introduced him to punk rock.
Adam and Donal start talking about the troubles with ‘lying to people in our society.’ More specifically, as they apply to call times when you’re an actor on set. Adam and Donal agree that they’re being treated like children, when the reality is they are always prompt and always waiting anyway. Adam goes into a story about an advertising campaign for Lance Snack Crackers, where he had to be the ‘Man on the Street,’ asking people to sample the food. Adam wanted to shoot all the footage in a day, but was instead dragged all over the country.
Wrapping up the show, Adam talks with Donal about his character ‘Jimmy the Cab Driver.’ Rainn Wilson evidently did a similar bit, and Donal plainly states ‘you can’t rip people’s stuff off.’ Adam is reminded of another weird taxi cab bit, performed by comedy duo Burns and Schreiber. Donal and Adam complain about how unfunny ‘Who’s On First’ is, and also get a chance to watch the aforementioned Burns and Schreiber sketch.
‘Terriers’ premieres September 8th at 10pm on FX.
