On this edition of the Richard Crouse Show, comedian and actor Matt Walsh was nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for his role as Mike McLintock in “Veep.” He is a founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade sketch comedy troupe, was a correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and has appeared in films such as “Road Trip,” “Bad Santa” and “The Hangover.”

He co-wrote and stars in the new film, “Unplugging,” a new comedy now on VOD, that sees a workaholic husband and wife, played by Matt and Eva Longoria, who are both permanently glued to their phones. In an effort to relax, they go off the grid on a rustic getaway with no cell service, internet or social media to revive their marriage. But what starts as the perfect weekend getaway quickly spirals out of control with unearthly encounters, strong edibles, cranky locals, and a pesky one – eyed dog. Without GPS to guide them or social media to save them, they are forced to rediscover what truly matters — each other.

Then we meet “Pressure” star Kevin Doyle. In the show, now playing the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto, it’s D-Day, June 1944. The Allied forces led by General Eisenhower are poised to launch. 350,000 lives are at stake and the decision of whether to attack comes down to the most important weather forecast of all time.

We talk about “Pressure,” and his most famous role, “Downton Abbey’s second footman, Joseph Molesley.

As well as numerous stage credits, Doyle is a familiar face on British television. As well as appearances on “Casualty,” “Auf Wiedersehen,” “Pet” and “Midsomer Murders,” he has starred in ITV’s “At Home With the Braithwaites,” the BBC drama “The Lakes” and played the rebel John Constable in “The Tudors.”
