Chillpak Hollywood Hour #187

Dean Haglund has done his holiday baking and is about to hit the road for snowy Winnipeg! Before he goes, he sits down with your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, to his a wide variety of topics, including: The texture of Canadian movies, The Roundabout Theatre in NYC, the lack of commitment on the part of many actors on television vs. the incredible commitment of several others, the Blue Valentine ratings controversy, the flop that is The Tourist, the delightful remake that is True Grit, and the likelihood that independent films will dominate all the year end awards including the Oscars.

Finally, Dean and Phil preview their upcoming three shows (one features a guest, one is a “Top Ten” show, and one is an annual treat), and ask you to visit the following websites pertaining to their feature documentary: The Truth Is Out There and Facebook.com/truthmovie.

Thanks!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #186

Phil discusses his Thanksgiving birthday and talks about a voice-over gig. Dean describes his trips to Savannah, Georgia and Austin, Texas, plus his excursion to the Queen Mary in Long Beach to do improv with the Ghost Adventurers. After discussing the latest news about the SAG and AFTRA negotiations with the AMPTP, and the latest details in the murder of publicist Ronni Chasen, your friends in podcasting offer up their remembrances of Leslie Nielsen and Irvin Kershner. Then, they get down to the business of answering questions from you (yes, YOU) their listeners. Dean and Phil offer up telling and hilarious remembrances from their art/film school days. Dean discusses why he’s never pursued writing for comedy or sketch comedy television. Dean compares the acting processes of “X-Files” leading men David Duchovny and Robert Patrick. Then, Phil launches into a passionate exposition on the state of acting, with contributions from Sean Penn, Javier Bardem, Ryan Gosling and Alejandro Gonzalez-Innaritu, ultimately positing the theory that “intimacy is the new punk”. He also offers a mea culpa to all fans of the “Twilight” films, “Dexter” and “The Walking Dead” all of which he has criticized in the past (and will criticize in the future) before taking such shows as “Psych” and “Castle” to task for their relentlessly numbing and “jokey” sensibilities. It’s a full, funny and furious installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
