The Leftovers: Penguin One, Us Zero (1.02)

Actor/Actress

With majority of shows, I know right away. I know if I like them, I know what I’m getting and in most cases, I stay with those shows for years.

Movie

The main reason why I wanted to see this movie was because of Justin Theroux who directed it.
