You may remember me from such features as Random Roles, or my oral histories of Battle of the Network Stars and Airplane!

Keep an eye on Twitter. Technical issues, time constraints, and word counts led to a few roles not making it into the final piece, and Bon Cop Good Cop and its sequel were among the casualties. But it’ll end up in my Substack newsletter eventually.

Stay tuned on Twitter. It’ll pop up on my Substack newsletter eventually.

I can’t speak to why it didn’t make the cut - perhaps a misjudgment on the level of interest, or maybe just because the piece was running long - but there was a bit more TITUS talk, and it was tied to a previous Random Roles, no less... Read more

If you follow me on Twitter, keep your eyes open: we talked about it, but I had a technical issue that led to me temporarily misplacing a portion of the interview - including that role and a handful of others - until it was too late to include it. (That, and it was already running long.) But give it a bit, so that Read more

It has, in fact, been since July 2020. Always glad to be here whenever they’re of a mind to utilize my skills to their benefit.

By the way, I meant to mention it earlier, but I did have CANE on my to-ask list, too. I’ve been toying with the idea of trying to do an oral history of that show, because with the sheer volume of roles in Rita Moreno’s career, I didn’t get a chance to ask her about the series, either, but I feel like there are Read more

Every time could be the last time. But I have high hopes - “How high?” - that I will yet fail you again!

I don’t think it was that he wanted to shit on the show, per se. But I do think his feelings about where the show and Tim Allen’s politics collide are...complicated.

Came here for mention of Starcrash, didn’t think I was going to have to be the one to mention it. R.I.P., Emperor of the Universe!

Originally I tried to transcribe it in full, but I quickly realized that describing it was actually going to be funnier. I’m just glad it made it through the edit.

Yeah, I guess I didn’t really flesh out my thought well enough on that. I knew it was a UK import, but what I was really thinking was that it was surprising that they’d put it on Peacock after only one series had aired in the UK, especially since it’s been renewed for a second series. Knowing the average US viewer, I Read more

I absolutely agree with your sentiment, but I gotta tell ya, I had so many roles to choose from, and he had stories for basically all of ‘em that I asked about, so I got in as many as I could. But it was a constant balancing act, trying to figure out what I absolutely could not drop with what I really wanted to ask. Read more
