Jimmy Kimmel Live!

It looks like Louis Theroux is set to delve into the life of our very own Paul Mescal in the second series of his hit podcast.

The Louis Theroux Podcast will kick off on January 23rd with Paul, who shot to fame following his role in Normal People.

The Irish actor has, however, continued to carve out a successful path in the industry and even earned himself an Oscar and Bafta nomination last year for best actor following his starring role in the 2022 coming-of-age film Aftersun.

While his latest role in the romantic fantasy film, All of Us Strangers, alongside Andrew Scott has garnered him further recognition.

Not to mention a British Independent Film Award for best supporting performance!

Director Baz Luhrmann, Basic Instinct actress Sharon Stone, up-and-coming singer PinkPantheress and fellow podcaster and actor Adam Buxton will all also feature in the new line-up.

Speaking about the new series, Louis said: “I’m really excited to release more episodes of The Louis Theroux Podcast on an unsuspecting world.

“Expect more great conversations with an eclectic array of talented guests – comedians, musicians, writers, directors – chock full of surprising revelations, awkward banter, wit, wisdom, warmth and the odd spiky moment to prevent it from getting too cosy.”
