Sean Penn conducted a covert interview with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for Rolling Stone.

Let that sink in. The actor conducted the only interview with the notorious drug lord to ever occur outside of an interrogation room.

Yeah, it’s as absurd as it sounds.

But the premise behind the interview is just the start of the insanity. Penn penned the story himself (pun was too good to skip — you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take), resulting in numerous nuggets of literary gold sprinkled throughout the piece.

Sean Penn’s El Chapo get is absolutely huge. But god damn it could have used an editor…& more focus on the subject rather than the author.
