JB Smoove returned to The Breakfast Club to discuss his character Leon Black from HBO’s hit series Curb Your Enthusiasm. “It’s always good being in this Leon Black shell,” Smoove says. “He’s an animal. You can’t survive being a dude like this. In a realistic world, he would have gotten thrown out that house a long time ago. You cant live like that.”
Angela Yee asked about being able to get away with things on Curb that other shows can’t. “This show is based, to me, in reality,” he says. “Everything Larry does. I always see a fan who will say, that same thing happened to me. It’s a lot of Larry David moments out there that he hasn’t even touched on yet.”
JB gives his thoughts on Affion Crokett‘s sketch-comedy show. “I feel like there’s a time for everything,” he says. “I feel like FOX should definitely, he did 6 episodes, I think they should let him do more shows. I dig his show, I think every show has to start somewhere. I think he’s a fresh face. He does Affion. That’s what I love, he’s not trying to do anybody else… It’s fresh, it’s young, it’s hip. We dont have ‘In Living Color’ anymore, we don’t have anything on TV. We should be happy to have anything from people of color on a network. We don’t have a lot of shows already.”
Smoove discusses the differences for Lean living in New York and L.A., four new films he’s working on, TV show he’s pitching to the networks, and his website TheRuckess.com. Check out JB’s first interview with The Breakfast Club from April of this year.
