While promoting their new film on The View today, Jason Schwartzman and Adam Scott found themselves in the middle of a job interview. Near the end of their segment, co-host Whoopi Goldberg turned the conversation to Wes Anderson. After complimenting Anderson’s films—many of which Schwartzman has starred in—she handed the actor something: her rĂ©sumĂ©.

I love all of the Wes Anderson movies, and you starred in like almost all of them...So, I noticed there’s not a lot of folks of color, and I thought I would like to give you my rĂ©sumĂ© to give to Wes Anderson...Just let him know I’m available...If you could pass him on...

While scanning it, Scott confirmed that it wasn’t just a prop. “It’s an actual resume...Whoopi, we’re impressed.” The audience laughed. The co-hosts laughed. But Whoopi’s move wasn’t a joke, but a biting piece of commentary on Anderson’s popular and award-winning films.

The most important (and most uncomfortable) moment occurred when Scott attempted to pivot the conversation to Whoopi’s former successes - as if to say, “But enough about how few people of color there are in his films...remember when you were in that one movie with the ghosts?”

Scott: Can’t you just hold up your Oscar and get anything you want?

Goldberg: I wish that were the case, baby.

Raven-Symoné’s response says it all:
