Versatile is certainly the word to describe Brett Goldstein. He is not only a two-time Emmy winner as Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series as Roy Kent on Ted Lasso, he has also served as a writer, Executive Story Editor, and Executive Producer on that series. Additionally this season he has added another Apple TV+ show to his credits as co-creator, writer, and Executive Producer on Shrinking. This is all in addition to previous writing and/or creator credits on various British shows like Catherine Tate’s Nan and Soulmates, numerous acting credits, and even a long running podcast he hosts, Films To Be Buried With, a movie lover’s dream podcast. He can also be seen as none other than Hercules in Thor: Love & Thunder, voiceover roles on the likes of Harley Quinn, Fraggle Rock, and the upcoming feature Garfield! among many other credits.
In other words Goldstein does it all, and he joins me for this edition of my Deadline series, Behind The Lens to talk about all of it including a hilarious story of how he managed to snag Harrison Ford as a cast member on Shrinking, whether he may appear on that show himself in season two, the ending of his time on Ted Lasso, the movie he wants to be buried with, the unusual casting of him as Hercules in Thor, and so much more.
