Topics include: The disappearance of young men and teenaged boys from the multiplexes, the continuing plummet of Netflix stock, the drop in average ticket prices, the failure of “The Tower Heist”, the whereabouts of Richard Grieco and the wisdom of Avery Brooks (aka Captain Benjamin Sisko) as told to William Shatner in the Shatneriffic documentary “The Captains”.
All that plus TWO celebrity deaths, ONE Hollywood Lawsuit and FIVE intriguing projects that are in various stages of production, development or discussion.
Starting like the opening to a spy thriller, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour takes to the open road, as Dean Haglund clears customs on his way back from Australia and is picked up curbside at LAX by Phil Leirness (himself only recently returned from the Pacific Northwest).
No sooner has Phil put the car in gear, than the conversation comes fast and furious – as insightful, irreverent and inspiring as you’ve come to expect.

What do “Star Trek” and “The X-Files” have in common this week? Dean Haglund! He just got back from performing at the big TREK convention in Las Vegas and he shares stories of the event.
