Movie Meltdown - Episode 178
This episode we are coming to you “live” from WonderFest! And if that wasn’t exciting enough, this week is also the much anticipated return of Misty and Jay!! And we find out what they’ve been up to lately (oddly enough involving a serial killer and a squirrel)! All that plus we talk to two terrific actresses... Joanna Cassidy (Blade Runner) and Julie Adams (Creature from the Black Lagoon). Both amazingly accomplished women with impressive careers, and we sit down and reminisce about some of their more interesting movie memories.
Plus somewhere along the way we mention... being a mentor, Long Day's Journey Into Night, The 12 Musketeers, being a bit of a loner, working with Elvis, Black Roses, insulting Corey, watching British television, Joss Whedon fan fiction, being a touchstone, getting shot with an arrow, guts on your lawn mower, James Coburn, art and sculpture, nobody wants to pet a Jawa, mommy, Fades, Milla, Jeremy Renner’s face, working with Robert Zemeckis, Body of Proof, my father’s first wife..., Giorgio Tsoukalos, Doorway, changing your name, Francis the Talking Mule, puffy paint don’t really last, Til Schweiger, over-stereotypical characters, a Moon Knight movie, Call Me Fitz, working with John Wayne, Ancient Aliens, the return of Winchester, conjuring up the tears, getting a tattoo to commemorate killing your first victim, working with Bob Hoskins, suspicious rocks, Cabin in the Woods, working with Ridley Scott, Six Feet Under, having a bathing suit shop, postponing a wedding for George Romero, Sherlock, Rambo the Avenger, a fur coat gets you the job, being taken over by CG, Donald O'Connor, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, Bullitt, working with Charlton Heston and playing a pathological transvestite.
“If anybody had told me that 50-some years later, we’d even be talking about this movie... I would have said - ARE YOU CRAZY?!”
