Will Arnett Jokes Podcast Is Opportunity to Rip on Jason Bateman


If you haven't listened to Will Arnett's podcast SmartLess yet, you're in for a treat. The funnyman joined Ryan Seacrest on-air on Monday, June 1, and teased the trio-effort of a podcast is an opportunity for him to rip on buddy Jason Bateman.

SmartLess with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Arnett is a podcast that connects and unites people from all walks of life to learn about shared experiences through thoughtful dialogue and organic hilarity. Previous guests have included the likes of George Clooney and Paul McCartney.

"We have them on and the whole concept of the show is one of us brings on a guest the other two don’t know about and there's no format," Arnett explained. "We're three idiots and we're like 'educate us about what you do' and that's it. ... It's super fun. We started doing it during lockdown. ... We were like we're all at home we should be doing a podcast.”

"It's an opportunity for me to rip on Bateman with an audience,” Arnett jokingly added.

The actor is also behind season 2 of Lego Masters, which premieres tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

"There are way more incredible Lego builders out there. ... Just the engineering alone," Arnett shared. "I could go to MIT and I wouldn’t be able to build this stuff."
