This week we've gone back to the '80s as we talk about the Showtime series Black Monday. Directed by frequent collaborators Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, Black Monday delves into the stock market crash of 1987 and creatively uses a huge amount of current comedic talent to tell its story of the fictitious version of how and WHO created the crash. Starting with Don Cheadle as second-tier brokerage president Maurice Monroe, we tumble through the comedic performances of Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall, Paul Sheer, Horatio Sanz, Yassir Lester, Eugene Cordano, and Bruce Dern, before landing on Ken Marino's amazing performances as BOTH Larry and Lenny Leighman, a parody of the infamous Lehman Brothers brokerage that filed for bankruptcy in the 2008 real-life remake.
