There should be more cocaine in the entertainment industry, right? You want your favorite performer on cocaine. It’s a amazing. It’s like steroids and cool, cocaine is cool, whatever helps you perform. I don’t do cocaine yet, but I’m just getting started, you know.

We’re doing this George Harrison week and my name is Harrison, nice to meet you. Sorry. I didn’t make any mistakes driving, I was just driving.

Here’s the thing, my dad who named me Breckin was always looking for projects for us to do and I said I want to get a coffin. And he’s like I won’t let you buy a coffin. That’s a good parent. But we can build one. And by the way, I’m not kidding. My dad, he could raise a barn. It was nice.

Olyphant returns as a guest on Conan wearing a tennis shirt, shorts, and flip-flops. He talks about his upcoming movie, This is Where I Leave You and his technique to not feeling intimidated acting around big celebrities.
This is my trick. They don’t teach this in Kung Fu. I came up with this on my own. You just come up with the least intimidating — whatever they got on their resume. And you just hold that and then it seems like such a big deal when you’re working opposite them. Bateman is amazing and all of these things but if I just say oh, yeah, from Mr. Belvedere. Yeah. I really enjoyed that show.

I take my shoes off and then I throw my socks into the audience, and people say, is that to be more comfortable? I don’t know. I don’t care about my comfort. All I care is that you people are uncomfortable. I find it’s better to perform for an audience that is profoundly disturbed.

That was like my move.
