With over 117 million subscribers worldwide, Netflix has keen insights into what just about any kind of person is binge-watching on a regular basis. We obviously don't know what all of those folks are spending their time with, but CinemaBlend recently spoke with a bevy of Netflix stars from a variety of different shows, and we learned what they've all been obsessively binge-watching in recent weeks and months. From Neil Patrick Harris to Drew Barrymore to the Queer Eye cast, everybody has been hooked on something, so check it out!
For a recent press event promoting Netflix's biggest current and near-future releases, CinemaBlend's own Corey Chichizola spoke with the stars of the new sci-fi mystery Altered Carbon, the beloved sitcom One Day at a Time, the hilarious horror comedy Santa Clarita Diet and more. One thing immediately became clear: Netflix's stars love Netflix shows, and not just all the same ones either.
Sure, we hear Stranger Things Season 2 get mentioned by Altered Carbon's Renee Elise Goldsberry and Martha Higareda, and the international smash The Crown also got name-checked by Drew Barrymore and Seven Seconds' Clare-Hope Ashitey. But aside from those arguably predictable answers, all these actors ran the gamut with what they're watching, and it offers up a nice microcosm of how the world at large is interested in such a wide variety of different programming.
Currently gearing up for a second season as Unfortunate Events' Count Olaf, Neil Patrick Harris is loving on Black Mirror, which he thinks is the perfect example of a modern anthology series. Altered Carbon's Joel Kinnaman and co-star Martha Higareda both fancied the dark western Godless. One Day at a Time's Justina Machado is a giant Helen McCrory fan, and she's been busy with the British crime drama Peaky Blinders, while her co-star Isabella Gomez recently knocked out the comic adaptation The End of the F***ing World. Meanwhile, world-renowned chef and star of the upcoming docu-series Ugly Delicious David Chang is catching up with Narcos, while his wife chooses to go old school. Everybody likes a little something different.
Also, it kind of makes all the sense in the world that Timothy Olyphant is basically only interested in watching David Letterman's new interview show and documentaries. I don't know why it makes sense. It just does.
We imagine that whoever we end up asking this to down the road, they'll be saying that they've been binge-watching Altered Carbon, Seven Seconds and A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 2. And the cycle can begin anew.
You can currently catch Season 2 of One Day at a Time and Season 1 of Altered Carbon on Netflix right now, and you can hit up our 2018 premiere schedule to see when all the streaming giant's future programming will be here.
