Neighbors director Nicholas Stoller is someone who movie studios trust with millions of dollars in production costs. Naturally, Marc wants to know how Nick got that way. He suspects Nick’s Harvard education has a lot to do with it, much to Marc’s chagrin as someone who went to nearby Boston University and spent his own college career on the outside looking in.

Parenthood star Dax Shepard first caught Marc’s attention as the barely functional simpleton named Frito in Idiocracy. And while he’s had an expansive acting career, starting at Punk’d and leading up to his latest movie This Is Where I Leave You, Dax’s life has been defined by his family, his sobriety and his cars. Lots of cars. And lots of racing in those cars. This episode is sponsored by FanDuel and Stamps.com.
