Hey gang! As promised, here is another supplemental LeagueCast episode, featuring two roundtable interview sessions from NYCC 2014 with the cast and crew of the batshit insane Adult Swim cartoon Rick & Morty. If you’ve never seen the show, it’s about an anxious 14-year-old kid who is constantly getting dragged into adventures to other dimensions by his drunk, mad scientist grandfather — think the Doc/Marty dynamic from Back To The Future, if Doc was a crazed meth tweaker and Marty a hopeless nerd. Along for the wackiness is Morty’s Mother Beth, Father Jerry and sister Summer.
Jeff was lucky enough sit in on two roundtable interview sessions with the cast and crew of Rick & Morty – one with writer/co-creator Dan Harmon of Community and Harmontown fame, and one with actress Sarah Chalke (Roseanne, Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother), and Chris Parnell (SNL, Anchorman, Archer), who play Morty’s parents. You’ll hear them discuss the show’s inception and creative process, how the breakout weirdo Mr. Meseeks came about, an alternate universe Seinfeld where none of the observations are relatable, whether Dan or Justin had a Grandfather who was a bad influence on them, and lots more. All this, and hear Jeff get a good zinger in on Sarah Chalke!
