Winston Duke, plus Stephen Lang (Vol. II)
Winston Duke seemingly came out of nowhere to most audiences when he made his debut in "Black Panther". And quite an impression he made. He's followed that up by showing impressive range in Jordan Peele's "Us", and now the indie critical hit, "Nine Days". Winston gets real with Josh about the early influences on his career and how his presence as a large black man in today's society has sometimes put him sadly at risk. Plus Josh catches up with Stephen Lang to reminisce and look forward to "Avatar" adventures, and chat about "Don't Breathe 2", Stephen's return to his memorable Blind Man villain (or hero?).
