Josh Horowitz
On Happy Sad Confused, Josh Horowitz gets nerdy and intimate with the biggest movie stars and filmmakers on the planet. Each and every week, you’ll hear in-depth, career-spanning conversations with everyone from Emma Stone and Hugh Jackman to Woody Allen and Quentin Tarantino. If you’ve ever wanted to know what it was like to get casual with A-listers like Anna Kendrick, Tom Hiddleston, or Kristen Stewart (all HSC regulars), then come on in and join Josh in the Happy Sad Confused studio.
John Cena
Underestimate John Cena at your peril! He's risen to the highest ranks of pro wrestling and after some bumpy early forgettable action films has found his groove as a comedic secret weapon and now a star who can blend it all together in a project like "The Peacemaker". John makes his "Happy Sad Confused" debut here to chat about his collaborations with James Gunn, the superhero roles he missed out on, and plots out further ice cream adventures with Josh.
