This week we are coming to you
"live" from Fandomfest where we sit down and talk with
Anthony Michael Hall. We find out how he got into
the business and what led him to iconic roles in National
Lampoon's Vacation, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Weird
Science, Edward Scissorhands and so many more! Plus we discuss
some other interesting activities from the weekend, like meeting
the original Godzilla and Ultraman, eating cheap sushi and trying
to fix a broken R2 unit.
And while we get adjusted like a giant action figure, we also mention... Saturday Night Live, War Machine, Musso & Frank's, Harold Ramis, the new Western, Abu Dhabi, Ben Affleck, Jack Nicholson and Harry Dean Stanton, properly approved by Ultra-Man, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, King Lear, the late great Steve Allen, rock n' roll theater, I'm gonna keep doing this...
