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.”

Three of the Week: 10/24

Every Monday, we present three podcasts you might not know about. Try them out. Tell me what you think.

The Business. It’s a weekly show biz show from the LA station KCRW. Each week there are one or two Hollywood type stories.  Check out the separate interviews with the two guys guys credited for writing “Battlefield Earth,” each one blaming the other for the messy film, the writer who’s suing for age discrimination, The Hollywood shrink who tells too much or  the writer and the director of “The Help.” The show starts off with some Show biz news, but each feature is pretty timeless. So go back and pull the stories you find most interesting.
