Diablo Cody Goes Day for Mamma Mia! Night


By Richard Horgan Comment

For the past month or so, Oscar winning screenwriter Diablo Cody has been doubling as a talk show host for Lexus’ L/Studio portal. Her Hollywood Hills backyard gabfest is called Red Band Trailer and welcomes to an Airstream trailer and Tiki bar a single celebrity guest each week.

For Episode #5, Cody chatted with actress Amanda Seyfried, not only the co-star of her Jennifer’s Body flick but also a key player in the host’s first date with husband-slash-show-director-co-producer¬†Daniel Maurio. Go to the five-minute mark of the video below and watch as she puts hubby on the spot regarding their first date involving an ArcLight showing of Mamma Mia! and cheap grub at a nearby Denny’s:

Cody has previously welcomed Joel McHale, Jack Black, John Krasinsky and Zooey Deschanel. Which is kind of funny, because Red Band Trailer is pretty much to talk shows what Deschanel is to sitcoms and rom-coms. Five more Wednesday uploads are scheduled for Cody’s first-season run. Highly recommended.
