‘Wolf Like Me’ Stars Josh Gad & Isla Fisher Preview a’Very Sweet Love Story’.. They also talk about filming falling in love while being incredibly sick, writer-director Abe Forsythe, and ‘Central Park’ Season 3.
With writer-director Abe Forsythe’s Wolf Like Me now streaming on Peacock, I recently got to speak with Josh Gad and Isla Fisher about making the genre-bending romantic dramedy. If you haven’t seen the trailer, the series tells the story of Gary (Gad), a father who is struggling to pick up the pieces and provide for his daughter (Ariel Joy Donoghue) since the unexpected death of his wife. Shortly after Gary and his daughter get in a car crash involving Mary (Isla Fisher), sparks begin to form between the two adults, but Mary has a secret that she can’t bring herself to share with anyone. Perhaps the universe has brought them together for a reason…
Previously Forsythe said that keeping things oblivious was the best way for audiences to go into the series. “I’d love for audiences to go into watching the series and not knowing where it’s going or what gets revealed as the show progresses. I think if that happens, then it’s going to shock and surprise people. You get to the end of every episode and there’s a reason that you have to keep watching.”
During my interview with Gad and Fisher, they talked about why they wanted to do the series, how it’s unlike anything else on TV, how Abe Forsythe takes different tones and genres and puts them together in a new way, being incredible sick when they were filming falling in love, how they both like to joke around between takes, and more. In addition Gad shared an update on Central Park and reveals why Season 3 will be the best one yet.
