Ben Schwartz, incredible writer and Emmy Award Winner stopped by to hang out with Sway in the Morning recently. Some may recognize him for his work with Sway’s poker challenger Don Cheadle in House of Lies and others may get introduced on the big screen in a gravity defying true tale about Philipe Petit in ‘The Walk‘.
The quick witted Schwartz shares a little history behind the film, as Petit tight roped between the Twin Towers multiple times. Insane to even think about, let alone witness but as the movie says “even impossible dreams begin with a single step”.
As the conversation expands beyond the upcoming role, he takes us back to a character he played named “Boner” and Tracy wasted no time jokingly putting him on the spot. Quickly dropping questions about certain measurements, his “cunilingus” skills and if he’s into black women. Hilarious…”Drop That Beat!”
While we couldn’t get him to give us a freestyle, Ben did get a little Guest DJ work in during the segment requesting the classic Kid and Play “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody” live on air. Excuse us while we hop up out our seat to get the dance off real quick….
Enjoy the full interview right here and be sure to check out ‘The Walk’ in theaters beginning September 30th.
