For years, Jillian Bell has been stealing scenes in TV shows like Workaholics and movies like 22 Jump Street. This month, she has her first leading role in the hilarious and moving new film Brittany Runs a Marathon. On this episode, Jillian talks about getting her start as a writer on SNL, improvising with Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld on Curb Your Enthusiasm, why her newest role “terrified” her and the latest on her gender-swapped reboot of Splash with Channing Tatum.
