Episode 35: Scary Stories and Spousal Transformations…

Don’t lie, these images still scare the shit out of you.

In 1981 Alvin Schwartz published a book that would forever change the face of children’s literature. Scary Stories to tell in the dark is one of the books most beloved by children and beguiled by adults for its visceral tales and nightmarish illustrations.We had a chance to interview the producer of an upcoming documentary about this hallowed literature and its author.

Episode 28 – Interview with Jon Gries…and something about lasers..but JON GRIES!

This is what real talent looks like.

You may know him as Lazlo Hollyfield in Real Genius, Det. Tony Montoya in Running Scared, Ronnie Wingate in Get Shorty, Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite, or Casey in the Taken franchise and more recently as Dr. Roberts on Dream Corp, LLC. on Adult Swim; the greeat Jon Gries has been a consummate ‘that guy’ character actor on the big and small screen for nearly 40 years.  We had the fantastic opportunity to talk with him about his role in Real Genius, specifically what his thoughts were if the lasers in the movie were real.

Caution, your imminent vaporization via laser is about to begin!

 

We hope you enjoy this special episode!
