Virginia Film Festival: Jorma Taccone and Will Forte

On the second day of the 2013 Virginia Film Festival, podcaster Sean McCord sat down with special festival guests.

Along with childhood friends Andy Samberg and Akiva Schaffer, Taccone is one-third of the sketch comedy troupe The Lonely Island which has produced many of the SNL Digital Shorts. In 2010, he co-wrote and directed MacGruber, a parody of 80s action films in which Will Forte revived and expanded one of his enduring SNL characters. The two comedians talk about making the life journey from independent creative artists to Saturday Night Live and beyond.
