Movie Meltdown - Episode 155

This week we welcome our first special guest co-host to the coffee shop! Join us as we get caffeinated and have an awesome conversation with actress Jess Weixler. (Though she is quite humble about it) she was dubbed “The New Indie Queen” by The New Yorker and has starred in “The Lie”, “Peter and Vandy”, “The Big Bad Swim”, “Alexander the Last” and will (hopefully not) forever be known as “the girl with the whatsees in the....” from the infamous movie “Teeth”. Listen as we discuss acting, all-around geekiness and cheese. Yes, cheese.  

And as we come to the realization that bad-ass never died!! We also mention...The Juilliard School, Michael Haneke, Carlton the doorman, W. Earl Brown, losing general geek points, pouring a whisky and playing Angry Birds, The Piano Teacher, cashew and almond, Atherton Rebels, using your toothbrush as a microphone, having the wrong accent, surviving the audition, John Waters, Walden Theatre, a healthy fear of the ocean floor, I do NOT promote bulimia, Shakespeare nerd, a new transatlantic diction, Chekhov, having people tell you you are not doing good... a lot, you need to remake that movie with ME!, I would see movies and I would feel like I had been changed, talking in the back of your throat, prevalence, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, living in a shoebox, satire, I’m gonna be a star!!, CalTech, vegan BLT, getting the evil out of you, someone that they love is super-proud of something that they did, tagged as a feminist movie, factory farming is killing the world, Tree of Life, a rattlesnake in a swaddling clothes, surfing in the morning, Jessica Chastain, being big in Africa, Chinese superstore, that’s all you get for your quarter, so in your experience with castration sex..., making unwise choices, experimental food geek, Benny's Video, the hyphen: our most precious resource and a killer blender.

“I don’t know if there will ever come a time, even if I like become some massive movie star with tons of Oscars, where they won’t be like, ‘So Teeth?? Really? You made that movie?’”
