Mark and Jay Duplass directed the independent films, THE PUFFY CHAIR and BAGHEAD. The directing duo's first film backed by a major studio, CYRUS, is currently playing at Sundance (where I am right now) and receiving high-praise (including from me).

CYRUS is about a divorced man (John C. Reilly) struggling with his new girlfriend's (Marissa Tomei) 22 year old son (Jonah Hill). Thanks to awesome things happening sometimes, I was able to interview Mark and Jay Duplass here at Sundance. My interview with Mark and Jay focuses on CYRUS, of course, and also the brothers specific film-making style (largely ad-libbed), and you can check it out after the jump.
