Actors Pedro Pascal and Kieran Culkin were both invited to The Hollywood Reporter’s “Drama Actors Roundtable” alongside Jeff Bridges, Damson Idris, Michael Imperioli, and Evan Peters. Each actor has had several memorable roles throughout the duration of their respective careers, many of them recent. At the roundtable, Pascal discussed his infamous “daddy” title that he earned for his roles in “The Mandalorian” and “The Last Of Us.”

Culkin notably portrays Roman Roy in HBO’s “Succession,” and fans of the show noted that Culkin’s attitude in this interview segment matched his character well. Pascal has played a variety of different roles, but his recent acclaim has been attached to two of his more dramatic roles. His humorous personality shone through when Culkin asked him the golden question: “Will you be my daddy?” Fans of both of the actors’ shows could not get enough of the hilarious moment amidst an otherwise serious roundtable discussion.
