Published Apr 20, 2018To be clear, post-screening Q&As are never a good idea. They're always filled with pseudo-intellectual tryhards who want to impress a room full of people (most of whom desperately have to pee) with their thoughtful questions, which are often presented as "more of a comment, really." But the question sesh following the Westworld Season 2 premiere seemed particularly egregious.
The series just had its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, and as Indiewire reports, the fan-portion section of the Q&A was eaten up by some wiener who thought everyone wanted to hear about his screenplay.
"We love the show and how it's able to keep the audience captivated," the guy said. "We love this show. We can't wait to see what the rest of the season has in store for us. Just a side thing for [co-creator] Jonathan [Nolan], my brother and I we're huge fans of Interstellar. You wrote that, and we're actually aspiring screenwriters as well and that inspired us a lot. And you've touched something within us and we hope one day we can share our screenplay with you."
Wow, great question bro! At that point, Nolan thanked the man and members of the audience groaned. Before the dude with the mic could finish, a moderator stepped in and shut the Q&A down.
You can hear cringeworthy audio of the exchange at the 50-minute mark below.
