Bruce Campbell

bruce campbellIt was a pleasure to chat with Bruce Campbell about his new book, “Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B-Movie Actor” (which Bruce reveals in our interview is part 2 of a planned trilogy).  We discussed elocution, investing in Detroit, why you should never stop working, how he prepares for Q&A sessions at conventions, and what’s happening on his book tour (which comes to The Music Box Theatre in Chicago on September 1).

Andrew McCarthy

Andrew McCarthy called in to talk about his debut novel, “Just Fly Away,”which  is out now. We discussed his choice to tell the story from the perspective of a 15-year-old girl, how he found the voice of the narrator, and how writing is similar to acting, but on a more personal level.

Ralph Macchio

Ralph Macchio joined us after a three-year absence to talk about his new movie “Lost Cat Corona,” out today in select theaters and next Tuesday on iTunes.  We discussed the making of the film, working with a writer-director, and the impressive veteran cast.  Plus: early call times and getting a new QB for his beloved New York Jets.

Frank Stallone

Frank Stallone called in to chat about the World Series, his musical influences, the importance of radio growing up, why he’s the only musical member of his family, and why he’s currently losing an Instagram war to his brother’s dog.

 

William Katt

We had a good time catching up with William Katt as whe chatted about his new movie “Subterreanea” and shared some fun memories of “The Greatest American Hero.”

 

 

Neil Brown Jr.

Neil Brown Jr. starred in “Straight Outta Compton” and was featured on “The Walking Dead.”  He’s currently appearing in two critically-acclaimed series: “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency” on  BBC America, and “Insecure” on HBO.   We discussed his role as a holistic detective and how it’s really a show about relationships and how we’re all interconnected, and how he’s greeted differently in public depending on from what role he’s been recognized.

Lorenzo Lamas

It had been a while since we chatted with Lorenzo Lamas, so it was good to catch up with him when he called in to talk about his starring off-Broadway role in “The Fantasticks” as El Gallo.

Cary Elwes

It was a pleasure to have the great Cary Elwes back on the show.  Last time we talked about his drama series for Crackle, “The Art of More” (which returns for season 2 on November 16th).  This time it was all about “The Princess Bride” and his book “As You Wish,” which is now out in paperback.  I shared my love for the movie and Cary gave the love right back to the fans.   A first-class actor and a true class act.

Corey Feldman

Corey Feldman and I were born two days apart in the same year, so I’ve always felt a bit of a connection to him, especially growing up and watching him in 80s classics like “The Goonies” and “Gremlins.”   We talked about our star sign similarities and then discussed his music career (and how Weird Al Yankovic was a huge influence in how to write concise lyrics) and his new double album, “Angelic 2 The Core.”

Tim Blake Nelson on his new film “Anesthesia”

Tim Blake Nelson is the writer, director, producer and co-star of the new film “Anesthesia,” which following a successful run on the film festival circuit opens in theaters and on demand this Friday.  We discussed the general theme of the film, what it’s like to be involved in every aspect of a film’s production, and the message Tim hopes we’ll take away from the movie.  Tim also talked about the strong cast, especially Kristen Stewart, whom he calls a “fantastic actor” who has a “Jodie Foster-like career ahead of her.”
