This is the interview we never knew we needed…
ET was withThe Night Before starsAnthony Mackie, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Jillian Bell and Ilana Glazer – and when the conversation turned to holiday traditions, we got an exclusive sneak peek into Thanksgiving at the Mackie home.
“[There’s a] butcher shop in New Orleans […] where they take another wildlife and put it in the turkey,” said Mackie. “You can get a raccoon in it, you can get a squirrel in there.”
“It’s honestly the best meat you’ll ever have!” he stressed.
And while it may have been best just to leave it at that, JGL asked the one question we were all wondering, “How do you prepare it?”
“Well you have to de-musk them. Under all his legs and his neck, there's a muscle. So you have to cut out the musk or else it'll stink up your house,” Mackie told the giggling group in full detail. “And then you chop him up in small pieces...”
Okay! Well, in other news – The Night Before is Mackie’s first foray into the comedy world, and it’s clear he certainly knows how to make us laugh.
