Hasan Minhaj Reveals What It's Really Like Working With Reese Witherspoon On The Morning Show - Exclusive

When Hasan Minhaj signed onto Apple TV+'s "The Morning Show," he fit right into his element as a fictional news host. After a years-long stint on "The Daily Show," his "The Morning Show" character Eric Normani was a natural progression for the actor. The hit show already scored a star-studded cast with comedy icons like Reese Witherspoon (Bradley Jackson), Jennifer Aniston (Alex Levy), and Steve Carell (Mitch Kessler). Working with names like that would be enough to make anyone nervous, but Minhaj is a pro. He took it all in stride and developed his own rapport with the series' leads. And hey, who wouldn't want to do a hilarious song and dance number with Reese Witherspoon?

During an exclusive interview with Looper, Hasan Minhaj revealed just what it was like working with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston during Season 2 of "The Morning Show." Cue all of Hollywood's intense jealousy for this lineup. 

Hollywood's leading ladies

Working with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon is certainly the Hollywood dream, and Minhaj only had lovely things to say about America's sweethearts. He said, "Oh yeah. It was such a thrill to work with both Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. They are masters of their craft." 

Noting how much the world and other industry professionals love and respect the duo, he joked, "And I know this is a controversial take: They are both America's sweetheart, and I got to see why. They're really, really lovely human beings, and they just bring it. I got to do really fun scenes with both of them, got to do a really fun song and dance number with Reese Witherspoon." Witherspoon wasn't the only one to get a great scene with Minhaj, though. He noted, "I got to have a very intense argument with Alex Levy, played by Jennifer Aniston. So that was really fun."
