Podcast: "The Wire's" Michael Kostroff
He brought the briefcase. We brought some mostly inane questions.
On a very special edition of the podcast, Mike Pusateri, David Brown and Andy interview actor and author Michael Kostroff.
Even if you don’t know you know him, you do. He played the lawyer Maury Levy on “The Wire” and has appeared in “Billions,” “The West Wing,” “Damages,” “Show Me A Hero,” “The Deuce,” “The Plot Against America,” Molly’s Game” and a lot more.
He discusses sharing scenes in “The Wizard of Lies” with Robert DeNiro, talking about impostor syndrome with Meryl Streep, filming one of the most iconic scenes in TV history with Michael K. Williams, whether or not he gets free HBOMax, what props he’s taken from sets (he even stops recording for a minute to go find one to show the guys), and he talks about his brand new book “The Stage Actor’s Handbook” available online and in fancy bookstores near you.

Thanks to Michael for a really fun conversation, and for putting up with us.
