Episode 70: Where The Wild Things Are

Let the wild rumpus start! We’re back to our regular programming with the hugely fun/depressing Spike Jonze 2009 fantasy adventure Where The Wild Things Are! We leapt here with Aussie actor Angus Sampson though he is barely recognisable in this. Did we love this movie? We certainly enjoyed discussing it, and hope you enjoy listening.

Season 3, Episode 16

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Angus Sampson

From: Insidious

Chosen by:
Actor (Mike)
Film (Glenn)

Angus Sampson is done a lot of Australian film and television, and often plays a fun, likeable character. But for some reason Glenn choses a film in which he is unrecognisable in a monster suit…

 

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: James Gandolfini

To: 8mm

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Mike)

James Gandofini was best known for his role in the very popular The Sopranos but he has a great acting range and appeared in over 50 films in a wide variety of roles. It seems no matter how evil or sinister a role is he might play, he still comes across as a likeable guy. We leap with him to a very different film, and a very different role…
