Join Dr. Carlos as he explores more character actors in forgotten Hollywood. Talking about Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, David Niven and more. "I decided to write a book that ties Hollywood's past reverence of American history to how the U.S. actually evolved, linking events that occurred during our pre-revolutionary days to issues that we might tackle in the new millennium. Award-winning novels also play a role in our cherished past, for they manage to capture the imagination of a ...

Well into their 9th year of changing the way people listen to the internet, your friends in podcasting keep finding new ways to do just that … This week, it’s a three-way Skype show with special (and frequent) guest Marc Hershon of Succotash. He joins Dean and Phil to discuss this weekend’s 4th annual Los Angeles Podfest and to review the podcasting documentary “Ear Buds”.
Before that, Phil rips the Emmys a new one for putting on such a boring show, while commending them for a few of their choices in honorees. Then, Dean champions a film by a female director that has stood the test of time. Phil lauds two recent independent films – one horror, one comedy – that you (yes, YOU) will absolutely love. That leads into their ongoing discussion on the art and commerce of supporting players, or “character actors”. Finally, Phil brings back the “Live Event of the Week” after seeing one of Dean’s favorite Broadway shows of recent years.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes actors Seven Digit Hues and Theresa Gilford to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss their journey to doing work that they love and what it's like to share powerful messages along the way. They will also discuss what it's been like to work on Earlina Weaver's series 2 Real 4 U.
At an hour and six minutes, this week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour offers you 10% more hour!
And even with all that time, your friends in podcasting didn’t get to everything they hoped to discuss!
What do Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness talk about on this show? You know, the usual … Lawsuits about the “Happy Birthday” song and Volkswagen diesel automobiles, poisonous snakes, “super moon” lunar eclipses, movies like Everest,Welcome to Me and Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, television like “The Knick”, “Mad Men”, “Documentary Now!”, and “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”. They discuss the deepening cultural impact of Stephen Colbert as well as David Letterman’s forthcoming return to television. They continue to watch the “recent woman-directed movies everyone should see” and they continue naming the names of current character actors whose work they find exceptional.
Enjoy, and tell a friend about YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, won’t you?
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?

There are three names that come to mind, when I think of great black actors in cinema today; Idris Elba, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and David Oyelowo. Each has etched their name in Hollywood as leading men of ability, good looks and great presence when it comes to the parts they portray. American film makers have entrusted their works to these gentlemen....even though they're British. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, some of our countries greatest black actors are actually British. So why not start a converse about some of their contributions to "American Cinema". Join us as we discuss the theme, "Focus Hollywood: Black Actors...The British Invasion!".
