David Dastmalchian Hosts New Talk Show in Caskets

In a strange case of life imitating art, David Dastmalchian is following up his critically-acclaimed role in Late Night with the Devil by becoming a talk show host for Grave Conversations, a weekly show exclusively on Instagram which debuts this Wednesday.

In gets even weirder, as Grave Conversations promises viewers an unforgettable journey into the depths of human existence, while Dastmalchian guides his guests through discussions that delve into personal reflections on mortality, legacy, and the afterlife, all while lying down in Titan caskets.

Guests for the first three episodes of the innovative talk show include Kate Siegel (The Haunting of Hill House, The Fall of the House of Usher), Mike Flanagan, and Matthew Lillard.

“After playing a talk show host in my most recent film Late Night with the Devil, I felt myself longing to take the interview format phase of my career one step further… with caskets,” said Dastmalchian. “The opportunity to interview my friends and colleagues presented itself with Grave Conversations, a hilarious, heartfelt, and personal exploration of some of the things that matter most in life… and death.”

“I never thought I would do an interview in a casket, but now that I’ve done one, I only want to do interviews in caskets,” Siegel added.

Grave Conversations is one of the best interviews, one of the top 15 strangest conversations with David Dastmalchian I’ve ever had,” Flanagan concludes. “Finally, my tendency to climb into open caskets was put to earnest and entertaining use.”
