In Episode 15 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Rob and Freddy unite to chat about our first glimpse of the superhero smackdown that lies within the new Captain America: Civil War trailer as well as our thoughts on Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix. As if all that geeky goodness wasn’t enough, our own dynamic duo then delves into the holiday comedy The Night Before starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.
It’s official: Tom Hanks is America’s dad. For a minute there, those Father of the Bride films nearly sold us on Steve Martin, but somewhere between Forrest Gump and his new film, Bridge of Spies, Hanks locked down the All-American Father Figure Championship Belt.

Whatever the case may be, Hanks — guided by frequent collaborator Steven Spielberg — is at it again, standing up for what’s right so we don’t have to.
