Movie Meltdown - Episode 426

This week we have a very special guest… comedian, writer, actor - Tom Arnold. Now, most of you out there are probably more or less familiar with Tom, and if so… you know that if nothing else – he has had one of the more interesting stories of anyone who’s made their way into the entertainment industry. His journey from a humble Midwest childhood to become one of the most notorious people in Hollywood - is that of legend. So we sit down with him to hear how it all began, just where it’s led him over the years… and some of his interesting film roles that happened along the way.

And as we consider going streaking through the nursing home, we also bring up... open mic night, Andy Kaufman, he’s outside playing football with these homeless guys, it makes my dad laugh, Herbert Ross, I peaked then, Dustin Hoffman, I walked twenty miles in my underwear in December, Arnold Schwarzenegger, that’s who I was then, Arthur Hiller, funny horror, Lorenzo Lamas vs. Brian Wimmer, Icarus, On the kill floor, Dunston Checks In, DMX, Everclear punch, John Landis, Dead Ant, Bob Hope Special, he would be speaking Chinese, Anthony Anderson, I just have to settle, he gave him a heart attack in the middle of the movie, Happy Joe’s Pizza, Steve Buscemi, drive-in movies, and then you’ll have these crazy dreams, Robin Williams, working at the meat packing plant, Jenna Ortega, Saving Flora, Kristen Bell and the most replayed movie on cable TV ever,

“It’s a world you can’t even imagine. You know, just the idea of Hollywood… how do you get there from Ottumwa, Iowa? It’s just impossible.”
