Call in to speak with the host
Jim Piddock will be on to discuss his acting career, current/upcoming projects, and life as a media figure. Jim is always juggling multiple projects, but his newest venture, Family Tree, which is exclusive to HBO is one if his biggest. He co-created the show with Christopher Guest and he spoke about the challenges and excitement over overseeing the success of the show as a writer and actor.
Jim Piddock is an actor, writer, and producer, who began his career on the stage in England, before emigrating to the U.S. in his early twenties. He made his theatrical debut in the U.S. in "The Boy's Own Story", a one-man show about a soccer goalkeeper, at the Julian Theatre in San Francisco.
He appeared in his first movie in the top-grossing film of 1989, "Lethal Weapon 2", in which one of his lines, "But...you're black" in answer to Danny Glover's request to emigrate to South Africa, became a catchphrase for the film.
As a voice actor, he is most notable for providing the voice of Major Zero in the English version of the video game Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Bolero the Bull in the movie "Garfield 2", and the fictional artistic director of Forever Young Films, Kenneth Loring, doing the hilarious commentary in the directors' cut of the Coen Brothers' "Blood Simple"
