This Week on Channel 10’s The Project, Paul Rudd, Sam Smith and More



Whitney Houston & Bobbi Kristina

This week on The Project, the gang will be joined by movie stars, singing sensations, comedians, and authors.

Join Georgie Tunny and Unholy singer Sam Smith for a Sunday night in front of the TV as they dissect their latest smash album. Sam discusses the pressures of the spotlight and the reasons why Gloria is one of their most emotionally invested albums to date, touching on topics as diverse as music, art, love, and slut-drops.

Later, Jason Donovan, once of the TV show Neighbours, pelvic thrusts his way to the desk for a conversation about his favourite musical The Rocky Horror Show. This month marks the 50th anniversary of the groundbreaking rock ‘n’ roll musical, and Jason will be the star of the next Australian version.

On Monday, Chrissie Swan will be making an appearance as a special guest. Chrissie is making time to get up with Sarah, Sam, Waleed, and Pricey before her epic year begins, despite her busy schedule hosting both the second season of Would I Lie to You? and her new radio work, The Chrissie Swan Show, on Nova.

On Tuesday, comedian Iliza Schlesinger will join the panel in a live appearance, and all eyes will be on the fifth chair. You’ve probably seen Iliza and can see why her razor-sharp wit has won her so many awards over the years, whether it be for her Netflix specials, sketch shows, movies, novels, or appearances on Jimmy Kimmel.

Adam Hills has written his second kids book, Rockstar Detectives: Murder at the Movies, and will be calling in live from London on Wednesday to discuss it and the new series of The Last Leg.

If you’re an Avengers fan, you might want to reschedule your Thursday night dinner plans because The Project will be crossing live from the premiere of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Jonathan Majors will join the panel to discuss life as Marvel’s “little megastars” in an exclusive first-on-the-ground TV interview.

A lot of people have big shoes to fill, but if anyone can, it’s Luke McGregor! The Melbourne comic gets comfortable at the desk on Thursday, the day before his first appearance on the Australian version of Taskmaster (airing at 7:30 p.m., local time).

The Project airs Sunday to Friday at 6.30pm on Channel 10 and 10 Play.
