Prime Minister missteps, ongoing conflict between the U.S. and Iran, and climate change strikes around the world are big news stories this week.
Between supporting charitable organizations, wrapping on a new sci-fi series for Hulu and criticizing the president, Sean Penn has found time to finish the follow-up to his debut novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.
In Bob Honey Sings Jimmy Crack Corn, Penn follows the exploits of Bob Honey, a septic tank entrepreneur turned international mallet-wielding assassin, as he makes his way to D.C. for a confrontation with a (rather Trumpian) character known as the “landlord.”
Penn isn’t one to hide his feelings on politics. He recently predicted that President Donald Trump would fail in his bid for re-election due to a surge in frustrated young voters.
Penn talks about his new novel, his activism and why he’s “fueled by rage.”
Produced by Kathryn Fink.
