Jason Isbell was the guest on Thursday’s episode of The Daily Show. The singer-songwriter performed a solo rendition of “Cast Iron Skillet” and was interviewed by host Desi Lydic.

Isbell’s chat with Lydic touched on his recent Grammy Award wins and his appearance in the Oscar-nominated feature film, Killers Of The Flower Moon. Isbell revealed he did not need a dialect coach for his role in the Martin Scorsese-directed film. A first-time actor, Isbell talked about a hilarious incident while shooting a scene with Leonardo DiCaprio that Isbell called a “Fartacus situation.”


Isbell punctuated his Daily Show appearance with a solo performance of “Cast Iron Skillet,” a song he wrote while on location in Oklahoma filming Killers Of The Flower Moon. The song was one of several written on the Killers set that appeared on Isbell’s 2023 album, Weathervanes, and he discussed how the movie infiltrated his songwriting.
