New look at The Big Short highlights 'unique perspective' of Adam McKay

Adam McKay is best known for directing comedies like Anchorman, Step Brothers, and The Other Guys. And while his latest film The Big Short isn’t lacking for humor, he’s not shying away from the severity of the 2008 mortgage crisis in the new film.

Now, a new featurette about The Big Short features the cast of the film, which includes Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Christian Bale, discussing their time working with McKay.

“I think Adam brings a very unique perspective, and I think he has a great quality of being able to be outraged by something without losing his sense of humor about it,” Gosling says in the new video.

Watch the full featurette below to hear from McKay’s view of making the film as well, and for more from the director, read EW’s interview with him after the film’s first trailer dropped.
