FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – An all-new episode of AMC’s newest series, “Talking with Chris Hardwick,” airs on Sunday, April 23rd at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT featuring Michelle Monaghan (“The Path”). Check out a sneak peek HERE, and excerpts from the new episode below.
Michelle Monaghan on filming a love scene with Tom Cruise:
“One of the first scenes was with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible III. My husband and I had just gotten married three days before…my husband hugged me and said, ‘How cool is it that you are making out with Tom Cruise on our honeymoon.’”
Michelle Monaghan on filming “True Detective” while pregnant:
“They aged me to be in my sixties at some point, but I was actually five months pregnant when I finished that. I think they thought I was method because every time I went away, I’d come back and I was supposed to be a little bit older. I would come back 5, 6, 7 pounds heavier and I never told anyone [that I was pregnant], and they were like ‘Wow, this is really impressive.’”
“There was actually a scene where I’m seeing Woody [Harrelson] for the first time and we’re having an argument, and it was on my close up of all things, and I felt my baby kick for the first time in the middle of the scene.”
Additional lineup of guests set to appear on “Talking with Chris Hardwick,” include (not in air order): James Corden, Charlie Hunnam, Connie Britton, Justin Theroux, Bryan Cranston, Jane Lynch, Damon Lindelof, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jordan Peele and the cast of “Orange Is the New Black.” Additional guests will be announced soon.
Produced by Embassy Row, each episode of “Talking with Chris Hardwick” features an in-depth conversation between Hardwick and a single guest or cast, highlighting Hardwick’s singularly irreverent and authentic take on today’s pop culture landscape. Compared with a typical 5 or 10-minute talk show interview, “Talking with Chris Hardwick” will leverage the host’s gift for deep conversation, on display in his popular podcast. The show will also have a strong social media presence and live audience interactivity, giving fans a new destination to celebrate their favorite pop culture icons.
“Talking with Chris Hardwick” airs at 11 p.m. on Sunday nights when “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” are not in season. The series is executive produced by Hardwick, Michael Davies, Brandon Monk, Jen Patton and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray.
