Dean Haglund drove to Winnipeg last week to be with his father, who was getting out of the hospital, so we certainly want to send all our best wishes to both these fine gentlemen.
Because Dean had no way of knowing how long we will be away from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles”, he made sure to record a couple very special podcasts before he left.
Year 7 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour begins with one of these episodes.
Yi Tian is an actress and model who hosts both the Actors E Chat Show and Hello! Hollywood, which airs on 35 networks in China.
A native of Beijing, Yi earned a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Texas and was supposed to become a software engineer upon her graduation. As fate would have it, however, she was discovered by a talent agent and was convinced to take up acting. She is currently filming the science fiction thriller Patriot Act and she will soon be playing the first character introduced in Dean and Phil’s dark comedy The Lady Killers, a character responsible for establishing the film’s constantly surprising tone.
Back in November of 2011, Yi actually interviewed your friends in podcasting for the web-based chat show Actors E. You can check out that episode here. This week, the tables are finally turned!
Given Yi Tian’s following in China, I think it’s safe to say that not since Wham! toured that country in the mid-1980′s have two more goofy white guys taken China by storm the way Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
If you are a big fan of the “In Memoriam” section of awards shows, you are going to LOVE this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Much of the show is dedicated to remembering the show business legends that left us since your friends in podcasting last came to you from a certain “historic building in downtown Los Angeles” …
Dean and Phil also follow up on last week’s incredible interview of true Renaissance man Leigh J. McCloskey by discussing another Renaissance man, Dean Haglund!
Of course, there’s much, much more to enjoy, including “The Irving G. Thalberg Drinking Game”, “The Succotash Bump”, the Bob Hope Airport, Torchwood, Norman Rockwell, The Pageant of the Masters, Phil’s desire to get knighted by the King of Norway, and the “Lawsuit of the Week”.
Finally, this week’s show includes big shout outs to Ethan Dettenmaier and “Combat Radio”, “Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis”, Pepper Jay, Yi Tian and Actors E Chat Show, Susan Larison Danz and “The Frontier Beyond Fear”, Marc Hershon and “Succotash”, Shaun Parker, David Sobolov and Agent Summer.
Oh, and if funny videos are something you enjoy, then by all means, check out this clip of Dean Haglund interviewing another sci-fi icon, a true “Star Wars” legend.
If you would like to get to SEE your friends in podcasting (rather than just hear them), make sure you check out their joint appearance on the ActorsE Chat Show (hosted by Yi Tian).
Also, if you’re going to be in the Seattle, Washington area on Tuesday 22 November, why not stop by the Northwest Film Forum to see THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE and to meet Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness? Only a handful of seats remain at this intimate venue, so get your tickets today!
Of course, we encourage you to listen to this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and visualize Dean and Phil and their visiting co-presenter, Jodie Orton (co-host of Siren 107.3 FM’s “American Dream Team” in the UK) as they sit around poolside atop the Eastern Columbia building, discussing the business of show …
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.
