    Conversation W/ Patrick Kilpatrick

    Conversation W/ Patrick Kilpatrick

    On this edition of The Spotlight, I had the great pleasure of speaking with writer, director, and veteran actor Patrick Kilpatrick.  If you’ve seen any action movie from the 90’s thru today, Patrick is a person you are sure to recognize!  Patrick and I spent the time during our conversation talking about life, upbringing, political stature and of course his new book “Dying For Living: Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot – Vol 1 Upbringing”.  This is a conversation not to be missed.  Be sure to check out Patrick’s website ​https://www.patrickkilpatrick.com/

    Conversation w/ Parveen Kaur (NBC’s Manifest)

    Conversation w/ Parveen Kaur (NBC’s Manifest)

    I can’t express enough how much of a delight it was to speak to my guest Parveen Kaur on this edition of The Spotlight.  Together, Parveen and I talk about the new NBC show Manifest that she is on, taking on the role of the character and her thought process behind it, and deeper conversation into things like avoiding being typecast in Hollywood, making an impact in the business and much much more.  Talking to Parveen and sharing stories about our starts makes this a memorable one for me.  Be sure to check out Manifest on NBC every Monday night at 10/9 C and follow the show on Twitter @NBCManifest

    Conversation w/ Brad Sherwood

    When it comes to Improv comedy, Brad Sherwood is one of the best in the business and I am pleased to welcome him back into The Spotlight for the THIRD time!  Together, Brad and I dive further into his time working on Whose Line is it Anyway?, talk about his current Scared Scriptless tour with Colin Mochrie, and even share stories of our love for improv and the root of where it began.  Three times on the program, this one is definitely my favorite and not to be missed.  Be sure to check out Brad on social media @TheBradSherwood on Instagram and Twitter and of course check out the site for the show ColinandBradShow.com for tour dates and ticket availability!

    Conversation w/ Tyler Labine

    Conversation w/ Tyler Labine

    With me this time in The Spotlight, it was a pleasure to have actor Tyler Labine join me to talk some of his past projects as well as his current show “New Amsterdam” on NBC.  We dive into some works like Deadbeat and Tucker & Dale vs Evil as well as if either project still has a future of any kind.  Then we dive right into New Amsterdam, what drew him to the role and what the role and show mean to him.  Be sure to check out New Amsterdam Tuesdays 10/9c on NBC, follow New Amsterdam on Twitter @NBCNewAmsterdam and follow Tyler on social media at @TyLabine on Twitter and @TLabine on Instagram!
