Life is Short with Justin Long


Life is Short with Justin Long


Critic Rating

Is it just me or is time flying by? How do we make the most out of our short time here on Earth? That’s what we’re here to find out. I’m Justin Long and I’ve been an actor for most of my life, so I’m used to getting inside the heads of the characters I play. But now that I’m getting older (I’m 43 now, yikes), I want to peek inside the heads of real people to learn how they find meaning in life. I’m also very curious what their favorite snack food is, and what emo...

"Justin’s ability to help his guests relax and tell stories you probably can’t hear other places, the positives of this show include his clear desire to avoid the typical “tell me about your methods” acting questions. It’s charming how Justin clearly came to this later in life and isn’t your typical Late Night-style celebrity host. It’s impossible to fake that level of sincerity. Justin is getting a lot better at this and now...But if I could give him one tip on hosting it would be try not to cut your guests off so much."

"Long is a perfectly pleasant host, far too pleasant to ever challenge a guest or retake control over a conversation. He falls into conversations you’ve heard before — how fame changes your personal life, the nature of comedy today — regularly. Once again I hesitate to call such well-intentioned interviews bad, but I do question what promise hitmaker Wondery sees in producing this show."
