UPROXX 20: Wyatt Russell Can’t Forget The Food Truck Burger He Ate In The ’90s


In AMC’s Lodge 49, Wyatt Russell plays a damaged and drifting surfer who finds purpose when he joins a mysterious order. The show stands as a breakout for its star, who has already made a big impression in a Black Mirror one-off, Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!, a co-starring role in Goon: Last Of The Enforcers, and opposite Audrey Plaza in Ingrid Goes West.

Besides tonight’s Lodge 49 season finale (and its eventual second season), Russell can next be seen starring in the World War II/horror film Overlord. But before all that, you can check out his answers to our Uproxx 20 questionnaire and learn about his “do whatever you want” ethos and his enduring love for a food truck cheeseburger from 20 years ago.
