Brad Pitt, Adam Sandler & more included in Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’ 2020 lineup

Every year, in between award season take over in Hollywood, Variety puts together a studio discussion series where the industry’s most sought-after names either in television or film are paired as duo for a one-hour discussion about Hollywood topics making waves in the year under review.

For the eleventh season set to premiere January 2, 2020, Variety will feature big stars such as;

  • Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” “Ad Astra”) with Adam Sandler (“Uncut Gems”);
  • Jennifer Lopez (“Hustlers”) with Robert Pattinson (“The Lighthouse”);
  • Tom Hanks (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”) with Renée Zellweger (“Judy”);
  • Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”) with Eddie Murphy (“Dolemite Is My Name”);
  • Adam Driver (“Marriage Story”) with Charlize Theron (“Bombshell”);
  • Shia LaBeouf (“Honey Boy”) with Kristen Stewart (“Seberg”);
  • Mindy Kaling (“Late Night”) with Constance Wu (“Hustlers”);
  • Chris Evans (“Knives Out”) with Scarlett Johansson (“Marriage Story”);
  • Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) with Sterling K. Brown (“Waves”);
  • Beanie Feldstein (“Booksmart”) with Florence Pugh (“Little Women”);
  • Awkwafina (“The Farewell”) with Taron Egerton (“Rocketman”); and
  • Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”) with Alfre Woodard (“Clemency”).

Speaking of the comeback of the Emmy-winning show, president and CEO of the Public Media Group of Southern California, Andrew Russell disclosed, “We are excited to present with our long-time partner Variety a new season of ‘Variety Studio: Actors on Actors’ which will be showcasing inspiring and relevant conversations between the entertainment industry’s most sought-after names. The incredible lineup of talent this season is sure to be especially compelling for our PBS viewers who look to PBS SoCal and Variety to provide an in-depth look at each year’s extraordinary work in film.”

Recognized by the Emmys as a special class series two times years back, Variety’s ‘Actors on Actors’ has over the years become a focal show where possible Golden Globes, Oscars, SAG Awards and BAFTA winners sit before their win is made reality.

With the award season nominees list coming up next month, the ‘Actors on Actors’ lineup provided could be a foreshadow to which names are set to become busy on headlines early next year.
