Craig talks about his love of music as well as his love of Kate Flannery, his cast-mate from The Office. He also slipped in a Pizza Hut mention, earning him $50k, and free pizzas for us.
Craig hadn’t been back in our studio since the before times. Last time he was in, we introduced him to Slumdog Millionaire director, Danny Boyle, and they became friendly. When asked if just meeting someone like that leads to working with them, Craig said “Absolutely not!”
However, Craig’s new show on Peacock, Killing It, came together from such a meeting. The creative team behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine liked working with Craig on the show so much, they wrote the main character on their new show just for him. Craig plays Craig so it was real stretch for him especially when he needed to handle live snakes on set.
