Episode 423: The Directors Draft

In a final episode together (for now, anyway), Mikey and Dave take a look at the studio draft... first, the guys drafted the best Actors around for their own studios.  Then, then best actresses.

And now, the guys pick their favorite directors. And like always, the Spawn of Ryfun, the Lowercase G who now is a Big G, calls in to select the directors to direct their films.

First up, a classic round of The Ryan Phillippe Game, then picking one by one -- Matt Reeves... Greta Gerwig... Baumbach! Watiti! Nolan and much more!

Who would you pick to lead your studio? 

(NOTE: Recorded before social distancing became a strong suggestion in many areas, as well as before Kenny Rogers passed away)
