Movie Meltdown - Episode 323 

This week we talk with Michael Gross about acting, the dynamic of Family Ties and his years working on the Tremors series of movies.

And as we find the best place to make a mistake, we also discuss... anthropology, sleepovers, eight performances a week, the most complex character of the piece, building a bastion, Shakespeare at that moment... that afternoon... came alive to me, holding onto your moral values, Edmund Gwenn, Tim and Eric, white yak hair, True Detective, a very practical man, Mary Gross, a preteen fan base, Our Father, they seemed to play well with others, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, fighting in World War 2, pretending to be a Doctor, a nice pile of money, Hamlet, always being prepared, Paul Rudd, orange goo, Dustin Hoffman, 11 year-olds declaring love, giant ants, try to follow good material wherever it takes you, Carbon Dating, they bleed through on the screen, St. Elsewhere, asexual appeal, Cool as Ice, making fun of Melvin, regional theater, John Belushi, her most successful marriage, conflict in his life, years of study, Second City, Miracle on 34th Street, Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett all rolled into one and I'm liking it so much here... I may never leave.

"No one was as surprised as I was... after 13 years - that 'Tremors' was coming back."
