Optimus Executive Producer Jonathan Desir Answers Five Questions with SCREEN

Justin Bieber, Iron Man, Chance the Rapper, Shaq, Family Feud… and so much more! It’s all right here today as Optimus Executive Producer Jonathan Desir answers Five Questions with SCREEN. Let’s get to it!

SCREEN If you could be the host of any game show in television history, what would it be?

JONATHAN: Family Feud. You get to meet celebs and see where America stands on ridiculous surveys.  Also feud is spelled weird, or is it just me?!

SCREEN: Most famous person you’ve ever met?

Last year I zoomed with Shaq and partied with Chance and Bieber! I was fortunate enough to work on the “Icy Hot” campaign and Chance’s movie Magnificent Coloring World, freaked out at the after party when Biebs himself walked in.

[Editor’s Note: Take a look at the trailer for Magnificent Coloring World…]

SCREEN: One meal, one restaurant, and we’re buying. What will it be?

JONATHAN: Gyu Kaku. Japanese BBQ. I think no joke have taken over a dozen people there for the first time.  I’m unapologetically obsessed with it.

SCREEN: If you can play any superhero in a major motion picture, who would it be?

I want to say Iron Man cause of the cool toys but Deadpool, he has more fun. He gets to swear, I have a potty mouth. 

[Editor’s Note: speaking of potty mouth, here are some banned Deadpool outtakes for Jon and for you…]

SCREEN: If you could fix one thing, what would you fix?

JONATHAN: The fermi paradox.


SCREEN: Your go-to karaoke song?

JONATHAN: Orange Crush by R.E.M., I used to do it on Rock Band when that was a thing, and thought it was funny cause people expected me to rap… because i’m a dope rapper. 

SCREEN: Your greatest athletic achievement?

JONATHAN: My Al Bundy moment is long jumping 20 feet during a track meet. Only time I ever did it, I averaged 18.5. I think the kid measuring made a mistake but I’ve told no one until now. 

SCREEN: What’s that TV show you’re a little embarrassed to admit you love to watch?

JONATHAN: Too Hot Too Handle on Netflix, intellectual reality show, my fiancé and I love the conversation between all the attractive singles.
