Episode 18: Starship Troopers

This episode we leap to something much more frightening than bad ghost effects – space bugs – with the leaper Jake Busey to the classic sci-fi film Starship Troopers

Season 1, Episode 18

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Jake Busey

From: The Frighteners

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

Jake Busey has appeared in about 50 films. We leap between two of his more well known films, where he goes from playing a serial killer, to a miltary infantryman in Starship Troopers. We are thankful Mike didn’t choose other Jake Busey classic Beverley Hills Chihuahua 3: Viva La Fiesta!

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Neil Patrick Harris

To: Gone Girl

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Scott)

We move on to our round of three leaps each starting with Scott leaping with Neil Patrick Harris to Gone Girl. NPH plays a physic that joins the intelligence branch of the army in Starship Troopers. In Gone Girl he plays a character obsessed with Amy. These two films would easily be two of his best.
