Actor/comedian Connor Ratliff (The Chris Gethard Show, UCB, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) embarks upon a quest to solve a very stupid mystery that has haunted him for two decades: why Tom Hanks fired him from a small role in the 2001 HBO mini-series, Band Of Brothers.

While investigating his own story, Connor talks with D’arcy Carden (The Good Place) about the nature of show biz success and failure, and asks the always eloquent Zach Woods (Silicon Valley) to gaze into his eyes.
