    Ep 17: Sunglasses & Jamie Kaler

    Here is my interview with Jamie Kaler, a great friend who I've known since his bartender days at O'Brien's in Santa Monica. He rose up the comedy ranks in starring roles in "My Boys" (oops, you'll see what I did), "Will & Grace" and countless others. We talk about being in charge of his own destiny (Dads in Parks) and his new series "Heathers."
