“BlackBerry” had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews for its sharp writing, direction, and performances from Jay Baruchel and especially Glenn Howerton. Nominated for a Gotham Award for Outstanding Supporting Performance, Howerton’s work has garnered some of the best notices of his career as the sociopathic, results-driven Canadian businessman and former chair and co-chief executive officer for BlackBerry, Jim Balsillie. Howerton was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us on the podcast about his work on the film, how it’s different than what he’s done before, where he would like to take his career following the success of this film, and more. Please be sure to check out the film, which is now available to rent and own from IFC Films and is up for your consideration in all eligible categories this awards season, including Best Supporting Actor for Howerton! Thank you, and enjoy!
