Neil Speaks! My Fun Skype Interview with “ParaNorman’s” Tucker Albrizzi! We Compared Fun "ParaNorman" Action Figures! 

In my review of “ParaNorman,” I said my favorite character of the film is Neil, the friend of Norman (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and the actor who voiced the role nearly stole the show! He is Mister Tucker Albrizzi who has the making of a great scene-stealer. While I interviewed the other actors face to face (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Anna Kendrick, Leslie Mann, Chris Butler, Sam Fell, Casey Affleck), I was bummed that Albrizzi was not one of the principals for the press junket.

But lo and behold, his publicist reached out to me, and we were able to Skype! I have nothing but respect for Mister Tucker, and I am sending all my good luck angels for his bright future!

So here it is. In this fun interview, we talked about:

*** His interest in making “ParaNorman”
*** How his “ParaNorman” work compare to his past voice work
*** How his character is really close to his personality.
*** Does he believe in the paranormal? He has a cute story to tell!
*** What does he want to do when he grows up?
*** We compared “ParaNorman” action figures and toys! His is much, much better!

Have fun!

"Hit and Run" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Get? 

The last time we saw Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard together on the big screen was for 2010’s lackluster “When in Rome.” Now, the real-life sweethearts team up for “Hit and Run” and I can tell you that this romantic car chase comedy is much better than their previous pairing.

The film draws you in right from the very beginning when Annie (Bell) and Charlie (Shepard) are canoodling on the bed. We get to meet the main characters in their most intimate moment. Charlie is trying to sooth his fiancée, Annie, because she is extremely nervous. She’s on her way to meeting her boss at a local college, Debby Kreeger, played by the scene stealing Kristin Chenoweth. Read More...

Director Tony Scott Jumped to Death in San Pedro, CA 

Legendary director, Tony Scott, the guy who gave us "Top Gun," "Days of Thunder," "Crimson Tide," "Man on Fire," and "Beverly Hills Cop II," jumped to his death Sunday afternoon according to The Daily Breeze.

He was 68.

Scott climbed a fence on the south side of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro about 12:30 p.m. Sunday. The Daily Breeze reported that the director left a suicide note inside his black Toyota Prius.

Port police officers, the LAPD, and California Highway Patrol joined
city firefighters and the Coast Guard in searching the water for his body. They used sonar equipment to "track the man in the port's murky waters and his body was recovered by a dive team around 4:30 p.m." according to The Daily Breeze.

So long Mr. Tony Scott, thanks for all your fantastic, thoroughly entertaining films!

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Interview for "Hit and Run!" They Held Hands, Awwwwww 

So the last time I sat down with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, it was for "When in Rome." I can guarantee you that their new film "Hit and Run" is much, much better! Shepard wrote and co-directed the film (David Palmer was the other director), and his true-life fiancée, Kristen Bell, stars as his love interest. "Hit and Run" is a funny romantic car chase comedy, but above all, I enjoyed the characters.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Why make "Hit and Run?"
*** Executive producer Jim Casey and Producer Kim Waltrip are from my hometown of Palm Springs, so we talked about their involvement in the film
*** My two favorite scenes in the film -- the close your eyes scene, and the first car chase scene
*** What do they want the moviegoers to take away from the film?
