Making fun of a place usually isn’t the best way to get a job there, but it turns out that it worked swimmingly for comedian and actor Bill Burr, he revealed on the Your Mom’s House podcast recently (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Burr featured in an episode each of The Mandalorian Season 1 and Season 2 as mercenary Migs Mayfeld.
“I went to [director] Mike Binder’s birthday and Jon [Favreau] was there, and he said, ‘Hey, we’re writing this thing. We kind of have you in mind. Do you want to do it?’ And I said, ‘I don’t know, Jon. I have teased Star Wars people a lot.’ He goes, ‘I know. I listen to the podcast a lot. I think it would be funny if you got in it,'” Burr told host Tom Segura. “My wife was kicking me under the table and I was like, ‘all right, I’ll do it.'”
