Kevin talks about his inspirations, his favorite comedic role to play (hint: it’s all about the partially-Hungarian accent), NOT auditioning for Robert DeNiro, …and he makes Illeana snort. (Classic moment.)

Really, our podcast was a bit like therapy for Kevin… he had more than one epiphany. That’s what talking to Illeana will do to you!
