Orlando Jones called the show just after the premiere of “Sleepy Hollow.” We chatted about how he joined the show and why his previous work on Mad TV prepared him to work in such a diverse ensemble of characters. He also deftly dodge my attempt to get him to reveal a spoiler. Enjoy this entertaining flashback from The Big Wakeup Call Vault ™.
Kendrick Sampson was featured as “Jessie” on The Vampire Diaries and now plays Dean Iverson on Fox TV’s Gracepoint, also starring David Tennant and Anna Gunn. He called in to share stories about how the cast shares a special bond, why he can’t reveal even the tiniest of spoilers, and how many Dr. Who and Breaking Bad trivia questions are asked on the set.
From The Big Wakeup Call Vault(tm): Kristen Schaal called into the show in May of 2013 to talk about the season finale of Bob’s Burgers and their upcoming live tour. We also talked a little bit about Flight of the Conchords and the rumored huge makeout session at the 30 Rock wrap party. Listen for me to say a naughty word that almost derails the interview and puts the entire show in jeopardy for several seconds!
Dan Mintz is best known as the voice of Tina on Fox’s “Bob’s Burgers.” He was calling in to promote his new stand-up album, The Stranger, out today in digital form and available on CD starting October 21. We discussed his performance style, how social media is an insatiable monster when it comes to creating content, and why he’s always felt too shy to appear on podcasts.

Melissa Fumero plays Detective Amy Santiago on Fox’s Golden Globe award-winning series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. SPOILER ALERT! She gave some vague hints and thinly disguised innuendo on what may or may not happen on the season premiere. SPOILER ALERT!
Joe Lo Truglio has been creating unique and memorable characters for more than 20 years. His latest is as Detective Charles Boyle on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” We talked about working with a great ensemble cast, the secret weapon of the show, and my suggestion for the next great guest star (SPOILER ALERT: A member of “Stella” that’s not Michael or Michael).
