Fear Himself, Tony Hale, Visits Preston & Steve To Talk Inside Out 2

Today in the WMMR studios, The Preston & Steve Show welcomed professional funny man, Tony Hale. Known for his work in Arrested Development, Veep, and so much more. He promotes his new blockbuster, Inside Out 2. The highly anticipated Disney Pixar sequel welcomes 4 new emotions: Envy, Ennui, Embarrassment, and Anxiety. Tony dives into his vulnerabilities and talks about what he had to bring to his character, following in Bill Hader’s footsteps, and what fear feels like for him. Tony himself recounted a few instances where he found himself overcome with fear or anxiety, as well as the resilience. We were taking notes while he divulged coping strategies that uses to get himself back on track to deliver smiles and laughs. What does a ride to the 60th floor of the Comcast Tower do to a guy with a fear of heights? It gives him great experiences to share! Tony brought wisdom into the studio explaining the difference between certain emotions that present similarly. And, he outlines the goals of the movie when it comes to emotional intelligence. In the words of the great Tony Hale, “I love talking about my trauma!”.  We dove deep and broke into stories from past projects.. Working with Hollywood legends of the past and present, such as Liza Minelli, David Cross, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tom Hanks and Keanu Reeves. His Arrested Development cast stories were epic. David Cross speaking to a painting, Liza Minelli doing stunts herself, and the amazing comedic timing done by Jessica Walter. Oh, and congrats Philly, we beat Dallas on for Tony Hale's city pride. He threw out the first pitch at the Phillies game and apparently out stadium is way better than the Rangers. Catch the full story plus all those Forky Toy Story 4, VEEP and Inside Out 2 stories on The Preston & Steve Show: Enjoy Tony Hale, Amy Poehler, Maya Hawke, Ayo Edebiri, and many more in this star-studded cast.
