Actor Kevin Costner joins Rich Eisen in studio for this week’s edition of The Rich Eisen Podcast.Costner, who has starred in a handful of the greatest sports movies of all-time, is back at tackling the sports genre again in his latest film “Draft Day.” The two-time Academy Award winner traded in his wooden bat and ball cap for a suit and seat in the front office in “Draft Day,” where he plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the fictional general manager of the Cleveland Browns. Shot partially on location at New York’s Radio City Music Hall during the 2013 NFL Draft, the film takes place over a 16-hour period during the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Costner talks with Rich about why he chose to do another sports movie and what it was that drew him to the project, which was directed by last week’s #REP guest, Ivan Reitman. Costner also shares some incredible stories along the way from sets of his previous films like “Bull Durham,” “Field of Dreams,” “Dances with Wolves” and more. It’s a fascinating listen with one of Hollywood’s finest actors, and be sure to check out “Draft Day” in theatres this Friday, April 11.

Which of the listener-submitted entries for the show-open contest was the most impressive?

Next is a man who’s always looking out for the betterment of the NFL, specifically with his suggestion to lengthen the goal posts, which finally was suggested, voted on and passed this offseason, Adam Carolla. A special, very influential guest on that exact matter also calls in to offer his congratulations, so don’t miss that. And finally, famed Hollywood director Ivan Reitman, who was behind the camera for the newest and bound to be classic sports film which hits theaters April 11, “Draft Day,” comes in studio to talk the ins and outs of making an NFL film, the on-set difficulties of working with Rich and Mike Mayock, as well as some of his classic films such as “Stripes,” “Ghostbusters” and many… Read


Rich Eisen Podcast: Adam Carolla, Maurice Jones-Drew and Gillian Jacobs

Actress Gillian Jacobs from the hit NBC show “Community” joins “The Rich Eisen Podcast (Chris Law/NFL)

Adam Carolla phones in fresh off the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Ravens and Patriots that ended in a bit of controversy thanks to a questionable officiating call on a field goal made by Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker as time expired in the 4th quarter. Carolla has been saying for almost two years now, on this very podcast, that the uprights aren’t high enough and need to be extended for circumstances such as last night. The ‘Ace-Man’ stated “How can a 65-year old man with cataracts and vertigo look up and tell whether or not a kick is good.” After Sunday night there may be a few Patriots fans that agree.

After a quick chat with Carolla, Rich then talks with Jaguars All-Pro running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who is coming off a monster week 3 performance where he rushed for 177 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville’s win over the Colts. Jones-Drew also discusses his holdout that led up until kickoff week and his reasons for eventually reporting without receiving a new deal.

We wrap the show up with the lovely and talented Gillian Jacobs, who stars on the hit NBC show “Community.” Jacobs found herself… Read
