It’s “Chillpak: New Orleans” as Dean checks in from the Big Easy and reveals details about the top secret performance he’s giving in the Bayou before his whirlwind visit to The Los Angeles Breakfast Club this week to perform “Dean Haglund: An Illustrated Tour of Broadway in DTLA”. Phil reviews a spectacular and important new play and ties its themes into a challenge faced by a high school student in New York Phil has been mentoring. A discussion about the art, craft and deceptive practices of movie trailers leads into an analysis of two quite buzzed about recent trailers and the promise of a film being released next month and one going into production soon. All that, plus Dean and Phil reveal what they are reading and a man who leaves behind one of the most significant legacies in the modern history of cinema is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #397

Before taking off on their holiday travels, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are doing what they do best: Making sense of a (show business) world gone wild …

They weigh in on the cyber terrorist attack against Sony. They celebrate a milestone achieved by one of their favorite shows. They discuss live events starring the likes of Angela Lansbury and Jeff Goldblum. They dish on an animation price-fixing lawsuit, the decades-long Roman Polanski judicial drama and the idea of actors owning a copyright interest in their performances. They discuss casting news that has them hopeful and casting news that gives them pause. They champion three outstanding films from earlier this year that you probably missed that are available now on home video and they warn you against an award-hopeful Christmas Day opener that is without a doubt one of the worst films of the year. All that PLUS much more as they wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All together now (singing): “We need a little Chillpak, right this very minute!”
