And so here we are, at the end of the emotional roller coaster that was Season 2 of Hot Ones. We almost took out a national treasure. (Coolio.) We witnessed a grown man (maybe) poop in his pants. We saw true friendship blossom, and astounding feats of willpower. It's been equal parts irresponsible and amazing, and none of it would be possible without the fans who rocked with us week after week.
To say thank you, we bring you a season finale with not one, but two of our biggest guests ever: James Franco and Bryan Cranston. The co-stars of Why Him? break down their facial-hair history and share crazy pre-fame experiences while tackling some of the hottest sauces on the planet.
Franco and Cranston even carved out time to discuss the rise and fall of Dave Skylark, his beloved character from the controversial 2014 comedy The Interview. Though Franco seems less than optimistic about bringing Skylark's masterful interview skills back amid the current political climate, Cranston thinks now is actually the perfect time.
"We can't bring it back," Franco said. "Nobody wants us to bring that back." But Cranston, voice of the people, politely disagreed: "I think you could actually bring that character back," he said. "There's no reason you can't. It's ballsy." Hell yeah.
Stay tuned for a couple more goodies from Hot Ones HQ coming at you in the next week, then gird yourself for Season 3 dropping in January. As always, be sure to hit us on on Twitter with your dream guests.
