4 Minute Mile
Richard Jenkins needs no introduction—if you believe he does, you simply haven’t been paying attention to the movies over the past four decades.

His career has seen him work with the likes of the Coen brothers, David O. Russell, Matt Reeves, Andrew Dominik, Tom McCarthy and many more, all the while maintaining an ambition to play interesting characters, in distinct movies.

If you look across Adam McKay's filmography, you'll see that his comedy usually comes in pairs: Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton in "Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby"; Allen and Terry in "The Other Guys" and hell, even Ron and Baxter" in "Anchorman." And even his latest producing venture on "Fully Loaded" centers on a pair, this time a couple of single Moms (Paula Killen and Lisa Orkin) whose one-night-on-the-town journey for a hook up finds them comedically reflecting on their lives, past relationships, children and more. We chatted yesterday with McKay, and asked him about another one of his famed comic pairs, Brendan and Dale from "Step Brothers," and if we'll ever get a chance to see them on the big screen again.
