Listen in as they tell the inside stories of how cinema and television history was made from a fly-on-the-wall perspective you've never heard.

Actor Ahmed Best joins Matt for a jumbo sized episode of I Was There Too to discuss playing Jar Jar Binks in The Star Wars Prequel Trilogy. Recorded live from Largo at the Coronet as well as the Earwolf studio, Ahmed tells us about the many stand in roles he played during the filming of the films, being pulled from the cast of Stomp in San Francisco, and contributing his own ideas on what the iconic Yoda lightsaber battle should look like purely as a fan of Star Wars. Plus, we find out if Ahmed really suffered severe burns from hot tea being spilled on his lap and if he really beat out Michael Jackson in a role during Confirm or Dispel Dubious IMDB Trivia. Stay tuned after the interview for a preview for an upcoming podcast mini-series by Matt entitled ‘The Complete Man,’ a spin-off of Amanda Lund’s brilliant podcast ‘The Complete Woman.’ Find it on Stitcher Premium.This episode is brought to you by Mack Weldon (www.mackweldon.com code: WASTHERE) and Audible (www.audible.com/wasthere).
