Joining us this week is comedy legend Judd Apatow. The prolific writer/producer/director takes us behind the scenes of his latest film The King of Staten Island for some amazing stories about how they approached material that was so sensitive and important to Pete Davidson's life. He also takes us way back and reflects on some his classic projects such as Superbad, Freaks and Geeks, The 40 Year Old Virgin and more.

Also on this week's show, Producer Gabe joins in for the full show! Kevin is out on vacation, but never fear, he joins us this week for our interview with Judd, and sent in his pick for #ReginaKingBlend.

We spend a good portion of the show catching up on some major news from last week. Mulan is headed to Disney+ with a huge $30 price tag. Nia DaCosta who's next film Candyman was slated for release this fall has been tapped to direct Captain Marvel 2. Tickets for Tenet have started going on sale in the UK and so much more.

For next week's BlendGame, we are looking at Russell Crowe! Send in your favorite favorite performance of his using #RussellCroweBlend.
