Gal Gadot

Born April 30, 1985

Gal Gadot is Wonder Woman. Take that in for a minute. She is a trained Israeli soldier which means that the moves you see her do are for real and she can kick your ass. And you will like it.

Noteworthy

  • Keeping Up with the Jones – Gadot and Jon Hamm are the spies neighbors to Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis. This is such a well put together movie. The acting is good, the plot is good, and the comedic bits are funny. What more can you ask for? Plus Gadot and Hamm look great together.
  • Furious 7 – Gadot in a fast car saving the team. It is amazing. I really dug the introduction of Gadot to the family.
  • Batman vs Superman – She was one of the few highlights for me in a movie that I really didn’t care for. The shot of her sliding across the ground after getting hit by Doomsday, skidding to a stop, and then smiling – worth the price of admission.
  • Wonder Woman – Loved the whole movie until the ending with Ares – listen to the podcast and you will hear more on this. Gadot rocks the role of Wonder Woman and I hope they keep it rolling.

Wonder Woman, she’s amazing. I love everything that she represents and everything that she stands for. She’s all about love and compassion and truth and justice and equality, and she’s a whole lot of woman.

Mods for Fallout 4 on PS4

I finally got my mods for Fallout 4 on PS4! And I can only say it is about time. We, the Playstation using portion of the country, were told we would have mods late spring of 2016. The kibosh was put on that by Bethesda or Sony or both and the delay was on. I kept up...

Tag You Are It Eddie Cahill

Eddie Cahill Tag you are it Eddie Cahill. Eddie Cahill first fell into my field of vision when he arrived on the sitcom Friends in 2000. He came on to be a love interest for Rachel and to be honest, was one of the better actors to fill that role. Seen than Cahill has...

Stand Up Comedy

I am kind of a stand up comedy nerd. Not only do I enjoy listening to and watching comedians, I really love learning about how they build their acts, how they craft their material, how they juxtapose their words - all of it! All of the stuff that goes into the show....

DL Hughley

DL Hughley Born March 6, 1963   DL Hughley first dropped onto my radar when he was part of the Original Kings of Comedy. I had probably seen him before that but this was my first exposure to his style of comedy, his perspective, and his brilliant mind. Noteworthy...

Elijah Wood

Elijah Wood - Born January 28, 1981 Elijah Wood, Frodo to some, Noteworthy The Good Son - This might have been one of the first movies that I remember Elijah Wood in. He played the protagonist to the very evil Macaulay Culkin. Love this movie. If it is not in your...
Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman

Uma Thurman

Born April 29, 1970

Uma Thurman first slid into my view as Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction and though I have not been as obsessed as Tarantino, I do tend to seek out movies that she is in. There is something raw about the way that she delivers dialogue and action. It makes her interesting to watch.

Noteworthy

  • Pulp Fiction – Again, first thing that I saw her in. I love her as Mia. The reaction when she is stabbed in the heart by the needle the huge intake of breath – perfect. Also, I love how nervous she tends to make Travolta.
  • Batman & Robin – Thurman is the best villain in the bunch in this movie. She makes a great Poison Ivy. The movie as a whole was completely over the top but she was excellent as a villain.
  • Kill Bill 1 & Kill Bill 2 – The Bride. I don’t know that I need to dig much further into it. Thurman is The Bride and she does, in fact, kill Bill.
  • The Producers – No one else could have played Ulla opposite Balistock and Blom in the musical version of The Producers. You really want to see Thurman take on more musical roles after you watch this.
  • My Super Ex-Girlfriend – Not the best thing she has ever been in but I dig it. Thurman has superpowers, her boyfriend breaks up with her – that was a mistake.

Desperation is the perfume of the young actor. It’s so satisfying to have gotten rid of it. If you keep smelling it, it can drive you crazy. In this business a lot of people go nuts, go eccentric, even end up dead from it. Not my plan.

-Uma Thurman

Tone Loc

Tone Loc Born March 3, 1966   Tone Loc was one of those iconic entertainers from my youth that I will never forget. His musical stylings fit the MTV generation that I grew up in and his beats are still rolling around in my head. Noteworthy Wild Thing & Funky Cold...

Caroline Rhea

Caroline Rhea Born April 13, 1964   So I have a bit of a crush on Caroline Rhea. It is not only her looks, it is her wit, and her intelligence. Comedians have to be smart to be funny in my book and she certainly fits that bill. Noteworthy Sabrina, the Teenage Witch -...

Morgan Fairchild

Morgan Fairchild - Born February 3, 1950 Morgan Fairchild, talk about someone that was all over TV back int he 70s and 80s. She was the epitome of WOMAN back then and really still is today. She could play any role on TV and hold her own with anyone in Hollywood on the...
Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba

Born April 28, 1981

Jessica Alba started out acting as a teenager and has been turning out great entertainment for all of us ever since then. She is one of those actresses that makes interesting choices and elevates the role.

Noteworthy

  • Idle Hands – I college students right hand has a mind of its own. Alba is one of the characters with hands that don’t have murderous intent. This was the first movie that I saw Alba in.
  • Sin City – Alba is little Nancy. I love the feel and the film work of this movie. Alba is one of the pivotal characters and a lot of the plot hinges on her.
  • Fantastic Four – Alba is Sue Storm. No, really Alba is Sue Storm. I thought she was perfect as her quarter of Marvel’s first family.
  • Machete – You got to love a movie that jumped from a fake trailer in another movie to the big screen. Alba is fantastic.

You have to be the best of whatever you are, but successful, cool actresses come in all shapes and sizes.

Brian Quinn

Brian Quinn Born March 14, 1976   Brian Quinn, BQQuinn to some, will always be part of the trio that is Tell Em Steve Dave. This is where I got to know him first and this is where he will always belong in my head. From listening to that podcast I learned about...

Anthony Head

Hollywood Babble On

Hollywood Babble-On was my first. Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith took my pod-cherry together. They stormed into my week, forced me to slog through a backlog of aural goodness and then continued to make me come back for more. And not only do I come back for more... I...

Chris Farley

Chris Farley Born February 15, 1964   Chris Farley... I don't know where to start. I miss Chris Farley. He was funny as hell. He was as good a physical comedian as anyone ever saw. Noteworthy Saturday Night Live - Some of his skits on SNL are the funniest ever. They...

Kevin James

Kevin James

Kevin James

Born April 26, 1965

Kevin James is a truly funny guy. He has played a variety of roles and he seems to be able to play just about any role, some of which we will dig into below. He is very deft at physical humor but then you watch him act and emote and he is a very talented as an actor.

Noteworthy

  • Hitch – This was the first movie that I remember Kevin James in. He was fantastic in this role. In particular, the training montage with Will Smith is one of the funniest things that Will Smith has been involved in, in a long time.
  • The King of Queens – Doug Heffernan, as a character, ran across three different shows. Doug was the springboard for Kevin James onto the large screen and really gave a jolt to his career. Add Leah Remini to this and it is no wonder that James is as big a star as he is.
  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry – Kevin James and Adam Sandler are box office gold. Having them marry each other for health benefits – genius. Such a funny thought provoking movie.
  • Paul Blart: Mall Cop – Bag on this movie all you want. They had me when he slid across the floor and didn’t quite make it to cover. Laughed my ass off.
  • Here Comes the Boom – A much more trim Kevin James learning to MMA fight to save a program in his school. Bizarre plot great flick. Loved it.

There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.

Must See TV

Do you remember, back in the idea, the idea of Must See TV? This was a slogan created by NBC to convince viewers that the hour prior to Seinfeld in the 90s was comedy gold and that you had to watch it. Great advertising slogan and with the lineup of shows that they...

Jason Lee

Born April 25, 1970

Jason Lee has been someone I have watched in everything they have been in since I saw him in Mallrats back in the day. Love his acting style and love the way he approaches a character.

Noteworthy

  • Mallrats – Lee is Brodie. Brodie is Lee. This is still my favorite character that he has ever performed. The delivery is amazing and so much fun to watch.
  • Dogma – Lee is a bad guy. He is Azrael a bad angel looking to help end the world.
  • The Incredibles -Lee is the voice of Syndrome. I don’t think that it would have been quite as good without Jason Lee voicing the bad guy.
  • My Name is Earl – A storyline based around Karma with a kinda white-trash set of characters. Such a timeless and amusing show. Very re-watchable unless you are my wife. She hates it.

I was a little nerdy, but I got along with everybody. I had fun at school – skateboarding, surfing, getting kicked out of class for making too much noise.

-Jason Lee
