Rob Corddry is one of those people that you’ve seen in a million things and always makes you laugh. Whether it’s playing opposite Dwayne Johnson on HBO’s hit series Ballers, or his roles in Hot Tub Time Machine, W., Curb Your Enthusiasm, Warm Bodies, Pain & Gain, Children’s Hospital, The Unicorn, and roughly a hundred other things, he’s always a great addition to any cast.
With Corddry’s new film, Bad Therapy, available on VOD starting April 17th, we recently talked on Skype about his entire career. During the wide-ranging conversation, he talked about making Bad Therapy in Los Angeles and what that added to the film, Netflix’s Medical Police and how they predicted the pandemic, how his first movie was Todd Phillips’ Old School and what he learned on set, working with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, if there’s any chance of getting him back on television, being part of the upcoming series Tog Gear America, his time on Ballers including watching Dwayne Johnson’s career explode during the making of the series, his thoughts on the series finale, Dunkin Donuts (since we’re both from Boston), and so much more I could never list it here.
Check out what he had to say in the player above and below is exactly what we talked about followed by the Bad Therapy trailer and synopsis.

Here’s the Bad Therapy synopsis and trailer:
Married couple Bob and Susan Howard (Rob Corddry & Alicia Silverstone) decide to see a marriage counselor named Judy Small (Michaela Watkins), who recently relocated close to their home in Los Angeles. When Bob and Susan first meet Judy, she appears competent, intelligent, and trustworthy, with a track record of other couples that she’s treated successfully without incident. But Bob and Susan’s particular emotional dynamic is a trigger for Judy’s dark and conflicted impulses. Suggesting that she see them separately, Judy subtly puts them at odds with one another and brings their marriage to the breaking point in a comically escalating series of manipulations.
