Everyone’s heard, or heard about, Christian Bale’s tirade on the set of Terminator: Salvation. Fewer people have heard Mr. Bale’s impressive apology and appraisal of the incident in which he takes full responsibility and does an admirable job of placing the tirade in a larger perspective. Dean and Phil discuss both and it turns into a half hour discussion about on-set etiquette, the role of directors and the frustration actors, directors of photography and other film artists feel while plying their trade. During the second half of the show, Dean and Phil discuss the apocalyptic state of negotiations in Hollywood. Between the Screen Actors Guild, the AMPTP and Dreamworks, the business climate in Hollywood is more scorched than the landscape of any “Terminator” film. There is still much to enjoy entertainment-wise, however, and Dean and Phil discuss several contemporary and classic films that might be worth your time and begin a discussion of live sketch comedy that will be the focus of next week’s show.
