I've done many interviews before, but very few like the one I did with actor, Scott Schwartz. Many of you have seen Scott in movies and TV shows from the 80's, but he's most known for his role as "Flick" in holiday movie, "A Christmas Story". His character's iconic moment of getting his tongue stuck on the icy flagpole has been seen by millions and will always be a staple in the holiday season.
Scott was barely a teen when he started in movies. What was life like for a kid from New Jersey who interacted with so many Hollywood types? Were child stars friends with one another? Were they taken advantage of financially? Were they able to live normal lives as children? Scott gives insight into all of that.
We discuss the friendships he built with people like Hulk Hogan or Barry Bonds. We talk about how some stars handle their fans and fan etiquette. He also gives his viewpoint on life in general and why people shouldn't waste it feeling sorry for themselves.
This is too much for one episode, so be sure to enjoy each part of my Q-on-1 podcast with Scott Schwartz on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show. If you missed Part I then do yourself a favor and start there first! And here's Part III.
