jay-ellis



Jay Ellis appears on the latest installment of Rolling Stone‘s “The First Time” .

He discusses his directorial debut on the show, partying with Issa Rae and meeting Tom Cruise

About his directorial debut:

Rae asked him to direct this season’s seventh episode: “I was like, ‘Yeah, I would love to direct an episode,'” “You’re crazy enough to give me one, I’m crazy enough to figure out how to do it.”

About Rae star-studded yacht parties:

“I don’t know how much detail I can actually give for these parties. Because first thing about yacht parties, you don’t talk about yacht parties!” Ellis says that the yacht departs from Long Beach with “enough alcohol to last you for the voyage from L.A. across the Pacific to Australia, if you needed it.”

About his first time meeting Tom Cruise at the table reading for Top Gun: Maverick:

“This dude hops off his motorcycle, peels his helmet off, puts his sunglasses on, walks into the room, has the biggest smile. The entire room lights up.” “He was everything you expect him to be and want him to be”
