Chillpak Hollywood Hour #592

Due to Phil’s teaching schedule, this week’s show was delayed by a half day. Once they made their trans-pacific, intercontinental connection, your friends in podcasting remembered a playwright, an actor from “The X-Files”, a beloved sitcom actor and a hip-hop star in “celebrity deaths”. They delved further into the topic of casting actors subsequent to a listener email they shared on last week’s show, which leads into a really deep analysis of diversity and cultural pendulum swings. Finally, they discussed such disparate movies as Clint Eastwood’s Sully, the recent drama about motherhood, Tully, the current inventive thriller Searching, as well as two legendary films, one about the concept of “celebrity” the other a romantic comedy about witches. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #578

A long-promised “Top Ten” show proved to be so fascinating to your friends in podcasting that they turned it into a 2-part epic! Boasting films from (almost?) every decade of feature filmmaking, this week’s installment will begin the countdown of Dean and Phil’s All-Time Top Ten Comedy Films! There are bound to be crowd-pleasing favorites, silent classics, independent gems and studio blockbusters. So, keep those Netflix queues handy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #435

After much hilarity, this week’s show begins with a letter from a listener like you (yes, YOU!) commenting on Dean’s use of the word “sensei” and his use of reverb on last week’s show. From there, your friends in podcasting remember actor Martin Milner and discuss Veronica Lake and the therapeutic aspects of acting, before launching into the movie and tv news that caught their attention last week, including such topics as a “Trainspotting” sequel, Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” debut, the forthcoming New York premiere of the revival of “The X-Files” and Nicole Kidman joining the cast (or not) of “Top of the Lake”. Then, Dean and Phil FINALLY begin their discussion about the art (and commerce) of supporting players and some of the contemporary character actors they most admire. All that plus … Dean and Phil wield influence with the British Film Institute?

Enjoy!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
