Movie Meltdown - Episode 466
This week we break away from our regular coverage of Louisville Supercon for a “very special episode” with actor and filmmaker Andre Gower. Listen as Andre talks about growing up in the entertainment industry. How he ended up in Monster Squad... with a role that should have changed his life (eventually- it did). And the amazing fan reaction and support over the years that lead him to direct his film Wolfman’s Got Nards: A Documentary.
And while we get into a heated debate about which is better - The Towering Inferno or The Poseidon Adventure, we also cover… Fred Dekker, Tiger Beat, a shark-octopus, Mr. Holland's Opus, everybody’s toast, get off my interwebs, Alfonso Ribeiro, "reality" "stars", we saw It on opening weekend, Ashley Bank, I would never ask you to be in my movie, how many brands own all those outlets, T.J. Hooker’s son, that’s super unfair for a ten-year-old, I was sitting there eating lunch and he was across the street walking into a Trader Joe's with Stephen King Rules shirt on, Ernest R. Dickerson, Robocop 3, Maddie Corman, driving to go meet a manager and publicity shots, a dubbed VHS off of HBO, The Coogan Law, generational nostalgia, Shane Black, I was the… kid that did eight TV shows that went one season, instead of one show that went eight seasons - that everybody knows, Ryan Lambert, who George C. Scott subsequently banned from the stage, it's just unfair to the human mind, sibling rivalry, I've had some pretty cool TV dads, Ryan Seacrest, E.R., ripping the Japanese LaserDisc, we went to England twice, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, we sold out the Egyptian theater Beyond Fest, Teen Beat and go make something… you fools.
“...but you know, you become such a part of that fabric of this story - with these people!”
