Chris Pine Blind & Fred Savage Love

Chris Pine Blind & Fred Savage Love

 Chris Pine, Jenny McCarthy, Steve Carell and Fred Savage all worked with actress Judith Benezra (The Moth) whether they knew it or not. Judith takes us through some of the rough patches of Hollywood films as we learn what happens when bad movies happens to good actors. Judith is great actress who has appeared in some the strangest films.

“Blind Dating” is Chris Pine as a …wait for it… blind guy who goes on dates with women he’s never met. Fred Savage is in the unfortunate sex romp “The Last Run” and Jenny McCarthy gets dirty in “Dirty Love.” Plus, why “Evan Almighty” might have gone over budget. Joe Mortimer co-hosts.

This was actually the 7 episode I ever recorded. It got lost and I just found the hard drive with the original audio. So don’t act like you heard, because you didn’t. But if you feel like you don’t want to hear it b/c it’s not new, I get it.

At the end of today’s show there’s a bonus. Joe had this funny idea of reviewing a movie that had not come out yet. It’s way dated so I put it at the end instead of the beginning where it was originally. Note that she was the closest, but Judith guessed the wrong amount for the opening weekend of “Furry Vengeance.”

“Airport ’77” – A Bumpy Ride

“Airport ’77” – A Bumpy Ride

“Airport ’77” (the year, not 77th sequel) is crashing into your ears! Big stars like Jack Lemmon, Jimmy Stewart, George Kennedy all sleep their way through this clunker. Christine Balckburn and Hannes Phinny from the podcast “Story Worthy” discuss this train wreck of an airplane crash To test the movie’s authenticity, we have a former steward…errr flight attendant. Sit back, relax and cash a large paycheck. Look out for a timely Brenda Vaccaro impression.

Three of the Week 11/7

Story Worthy is a great story telling show hosted by Christine Blackburn and Hannes Phinney. Each week they have a different guest and a different subjects. Stories about waiting tables, c*ck blocking, young love and barking dogs. first the hosts give their take on the subject. Then guest will do a story and then a quick interview. The shows are close to 40 minutes. They are a lot of fun. (Full disclosure, I was a guest. It was fun. They will be on “Proudly Resents”  soon.)

 

The Jerky Boys Show with Johnny Brennan. If we wait long enough everyone will have a podcast. Proof? JB of the Jerky Boys has a show that plays one bit and then he answers questions and gives background on some of the bits. I have a question, what happened to the other guy who was in the group? Why do you take all the credit? Also, as a fan of the Jerky Boys and a New York accent, how can I not listen every week?

 

Martini Shot– TV writer Rob Long does a weekly radio column on KCRW. He talks about Hollywood showbiz stuff and makes it universal. Interesting stuff. Each show is 4 minutes. You can listen to a munch of shows at one.
