A Star Is Born

A more perfect episode could not be cultivated for our guest Louis Virtel. We discuss the big hit of the fall A Star Is Born. As an added bonus, we go deep on something near and dear to the hearts of Alonso and Louis, the 50th anniversary of the release of Barbarella. Ever the Jane Fonda fan, Louis dives deep on the filmography of one of the greatest movie stars of all time. PLUS, Ricky elaborates on the oeuvre of The Wu-Tang Clan (AKA the "Wu-vre"). Alonso praises Taylor Swift. And Drea is amped on the new season of 'Dr. Who.' To finish out the episode, as always, we've got staff picks.

In news, James Gunn gets a new gig, there's a really weird profile of Drew Barrymore on the Egyptair in-flight magazine, and Richard Dreyfuss has some ideas on how to make Jaws better.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Evil Dead 2
Alonso - Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (TV Movie)
Drea - The Oath
Louis - Colette

You can listen to Louis every week on Keep It.

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing First Man.

Sam Elliott on Westerns, Comedy & 'I'll See You In My Dreams'

Guest host Erin Gibson sits down with the veteran actor Sam Elliott. He's currently starring in FX's Justified and co-stars in the new movie I'll See You In My Dreams with Blythe Danner.

He talks to us about being resistant to change, the ways in which his on-screen roles as cowboys and bikers do (and don't) mirror his real life, how the Coen brothers snagged him for The Big Lebowski, and his stint on Parks and Recreation.

I'll See You In My Dreams is in theaters this week.

Pitch Perfect 2 Writer Kay Cannon on Returning to the World of A Capella and Her 30 Rock Days

Jesse sits down with comedy writer and producer Kay Cannon. She started off her TV career writing on 30 Rock, later moving on to write and executive produce New Girl. We're also pretty sure she's the first person to tackle the world of collegiate a cappella on the big screen in the screenplay for Pitch Perfect.

Cannon returned to that world to write the sequel, Pitch Perfect 2, which is in theaters this week.

She talks to us about why she sees Pitch Perfect as a sports movie (and not as a musical), coining new lingo for the world of a cappella singers, and honing her joke-writing at 30 Rock.
