Episode 47: Weird: The Al Yankovic Story (2022)

For the second of Glenn’s three leaps we go to the 2022 Weird Al biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. Another recent film that looks fun. Did we like it or was it a bit Weird? (Or both?)  Listen to find out!

Season 2, Episode 20

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Arturo Castro

From: The Menu

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Glenn)

Arturo Castro plays a rich tech bro dude in The Menu and we leap with him to a film in which he plays (the probably even richer) Pablo Escobar, although these roles couldn’t be any more different with one a very serious character and one hilarious over-the-top drug boss.

Where are we leaping to?

Re-recording Mixer: Tony Solis

To: Promising Young Woman

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Glenn)

For his last of three leaps Glenn chooses the great re-recording mixer/additional re-recording mixer/re-recording mix technician Tony Solis to leap to Promising Young Woman – a film that again is recent and not yet seen by two of us.
