THE GRAND GESTURE: The American President

Since the extent of our research on AARON SORKIN was one of us watching an episode of THE WEST WING and the other pulling up an IMDb tab on this accomplished writer, your hosts bring in a Sorkin expert in JESSE SCHOBER of the FIELD OF SCREAMS podcast. And no, it's not about Sorkin, but Jesse has compiled all of his knowledge on this man into one great speech that is to be found at the end of this show (so you have to listen). Before that though we go back to the good old days of American politics, or at the very least American politics as a rom-com in ROB REINER's THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT starring ANNETTE BENING and MICHAEL DOUGLAS. As usual we find ourselves unable to recast Bening but often get confused by the various Presidential figures from the Sorkin-verse when MARTIN SHEEN makes an appearance, but none of that really matters because every character in this movie has a Grand Gesture worthy speech! Listen to them here.

Richard Armitage interview on SLEEPWALKER

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in. But when they finally succeed, it’s revealed that Sarah’s world is not what she thought at all. Today my guest is one of the stars SLEEPWALKER, Richard Armitage. Tonight we talk about his work on that film as well as his work as Thorin Oakenshiled in The Hobbit Films, as John Proctor in The Crucible, and his upcoming films Ocens 8 and the Julie Delpy directed film My Zoe.
