I’ve loved Wil Wheaton since Rob Reiner’s “Stand by Me” so it was such an honor to speak to the actor for his creepy film about boredom and isolation in “Rent-A-Pal.”  Written and directed by Jon Stevenson, Wheaton is the pal on the title, the charming and charismatic Andy who becomes the only friend of David (Brian Landis Folkins), a lonely bachelor who cares for his aging mother (Kathleen Brady).  Andy is the host of a strange VHS tape called Rent-A-Pal that slowly consumes David.

Take a look at my interview with Wil Wheaton as he discusses the making of “Rent-A-Pal” and why he’s very proud of the movie.  “Rent-A-Pal” will be released on-demand by IFC Midnight on September 11.
