Movie Meltdown - Episode 431
This week we are coming to you "live" from the Lexington Comic & Toy Convention as we sit down with Doug Jones to discuss not just monsters and aliens, but also his Sofa Theater pick - Notting Hill. As well as hearing his stories about just being on-stage at the Oscars the week before with his Academy Award-winning film The Shape of Water!
