Joshua Malina belongs to a special class of actors who can deliver a standout dramatic performance one minute then nail a great comedic punchline the next. It's no wonder that some of his most notable roles were written for him specifically by the great Aaron Sorkin. We had the chance to talk to Josh at length about his blockbuster podcast 'The West Wing Weekly', how it feels to watch the show after an historic election, and how it's going to feel for him when he and his co-host Hrishikesh Hirway have to discuss his own performance as Will Bailey when they get to season four. Josh also spoke to us about his time both on 'The Thrilling Adventure Hour' and 'Sports Night' and how those projects scratched both his comedy itch, and his desire to get back to performing on stage again. We also talked about how he once saved Aaron Sorkin's life, his work with Mazon, playing poker, pranking Bradley Whitford, and whether or not he'd want to do a musical episode of 'Scandal'.
Scandal returns Thursday, January 26th at 9 p.m. on ABC and you can find 'The West Wing Weekly' on iTunes, or your podcatcher of choice - new episodes release every Wednesday.

Ever wanted to know what a TV and movie award show would be like in 'The Man in the High Castle' universe? Welcome to the Golden Globes 2017! I'm only joking (kinda) but we're still here, and we're still taking it for serious. Srsly. How could we not with Greg Mucino returning to the podcast?! Even if it was really the 'La La Land' awards, we still had opinions. Very belligerent, uncut ones - you know, the ones that really matter.
What'd you think of the awards? We'd love to hear from you @GeekdomFancast on twitter or facebook.com/TheGeekdomFancast!
For a whole host of reasons, 2016 wasn't quite the best year that we've collectively gone through in recent memory. Which is why it's important that we not deny you our annual 'Best of Last Year' list! It's just Myke and Derek, as per tradition, getting back to basics and geeking out over what our favorites in film and television for the past year.
