383 - Rob Corddry: The Idea of Character Building

Rob Corddry is an actor and writer. He plays Joe in one of my favorite HBO shows, “Ballers.” He’s also been in “Hot Tub Time Machine,” and was a correspondent on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart. This is where Rob developed his iconic character: the likable jerk. I wanted to understand how he created this character. Because he looks like he’s having so much fun being it. And I think there’s something to that… to learning how to like the character your living.    Links and Resources HBO’s “Ballers
