Ike Barinholtz, one of the Mad Minds from MAD TV, has a remarkable resume. He has credits for every creative role in television production and he has worked as a voice actor, a romantic interest, comic relief, and as a strong action character (Suicide Squad, anyone?). Currently he is making the rounds to promote his latest project: “The Oath”, a dark political comedy. (He is the producer, writer, director, and lead character.) I sat down with Barinholtz and we discussed the sensitive topic of politics, we play a rapid fire question game, and there might be an Obama & Trump impression in there.
“The Oath” hits theaters October 12.
Since childhood, movies have been one of my best escapes, adventures, romances, and laughs.I am always asked “What is your favorite movie?”. The Breakfast Club, hands down!It was the first movie I ever emotionally connected with and in general John Hughes’ work had a tendency to never let me down.
