Funny In Failure

May 29, 2023

Carla Gallo is an actor whose first major film role was in David Russell’s feature SPANKING THE MONKEY. This breakout performance gained Carla an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, and the film won the Audience Award in Sundance. This caught the attention of filmmaker Judd Apatow who cast her as the female lead in the cult favorite UNDECLARED. Carla went on to work consistently with Apatow in such features as, THE 4O YEAR OLD VIRGIN, KNOCKED UP, SUPER BAD, FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, FUNNY PEOPLE and GET HIM TO THE GREEK.

Carla played dynamic roles in the iconic series, CARNIVALE, CALIFORNICATION and MAD MEN. Her other television credits include BURNING LOVE, 2 BROKE GIRLS, WORKAHOLICS, SNEAKY PETE, and recurring roles on BONES and MAYANS M.C.

In both Universal’s NEIGHBORS and NEIGHBORS 2, Carla gives scene stealing performances as Seth Rogen’s and Rose Byrne’s loveably unglued friend. Carla has completed work on two Netflix features, A FUTILE & STUPID GESTURE directed by David Wain, LITTLE EVIL directed by Eli Craig. Her other feature credits include, I LOVE YOU MAN, WE BOUGHT A ZOO, MOTHER AND CHILD, HAPPIEST SEASON and FOUR GOOD DAYS.

Most recently, Carla will re-team with Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne as a lead in the Apple TV+ comedy series PLATONIC which is now out!

We chat about Career dry spells, sucking Steve Carell’s toe, course correction, winning mentality, fear, feedback and Bones.

The video footage of this entire chat is now out as well (one day after release)! So check them out on YouTube under Michael Kahan
