After dialing in from home, David shared how he’s handling quarantine, and revealed he’s running out of things to do, including alphabetizing his colognes.

They then discussed Tiger King and how the series’ breakout star Joe Exotic suggested David or Brad Pitt play him in a potential movie. And now, David is reacting!

“I thought it’s just a funny idea…it’s more fun to think of who the casting would be,” he said.

Joe Exotic said me or Brad Pitt, and uh, I think which way it’s gonna head. I see Brad at auditions all the time…you know what Brad does? He brings his Oscar to auditions now,” he joked.

“But I think Joe is a little too squirrely for Brad. That might be wishful thinking, Brad is so studly.”
