Fresh Air: Best Of: Rosie Perez / Stephen Merchant

Rosie Perez was a dancer on Soul Train, the choreographer for “the Fly Girls,” the dancers on the sketch comedy show In Living Color, and she did the now-famous dance in the opening credit sequence of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. She’s now co-starring in the HBO max series The Flight Attendant. We’ll talk about her career and how she managed to become so successful after having been raised as a ward of the state in St. Joseph’s Catholic Home for Children in New York, and later in foster care.

Maureen Corrigan reviews Hernan Diaz’s new novel, Trust.

Also, we speak with comedian, writer, director and actor Stephen Merchant. With Ricky Gervais, he co-created the British comedy The Office. He has a new comedy thriller series called The Outlaws.
