Leslie Jones gleefully discusses her 19 husbands on ‘Our Flag Means Death’

If you’ve seen Taika Waititi’s new pirate comedy, Our Flag Means Death, you’ll already know that it is, as Mashable’s Belen Edwards puts it in her review, “a gem of a comedy series.”

But how do the actors themselves feel about it? This is the question Seth Meyers poses to Leslie Jones, who plays Spanish Jackie in the show, asking her on in the clip above if she’s been enjoying playing a pirate.
