Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the most acclaimed writer/directors in the history of film, with such credits as: “Boogie Nights,” “Magnolia,” “Punch-Drunk Love,” There Will Be Blood,” “Licorice Pizza,” and more. In this episode, Nick looks back at P.T.A.’s connection to “Saturday Night Live,” including talking about his early love of watching SNL, some of the sketches he has written for the show in the past, and the fact that his life-partner is legendary former cast member Maya Rudolph. You’ll hear about how Rudolph and Anderson met, how Paul was inspired to write “Punch-Drunk Love” after watching a classic Adam Sandler sketch from 1993, and it all leads up to the satire of MTV’s “FANatic” series that he wrote and directed for the Ben Affleck-hosted episode from February 2000. You’ll hear the sketch itself, learn how it was written, and get details of the behind-the-scenes madness of the week leading up to the show (Fiona Apple, who was dating Anderson at the time, shares some thoughts as well). One of the world’s best filmmakers made a weird, disturbing, hilarious little film for SNL, and you’ll get all the details in this episode of “That Show…” [Ep75]
