Jonah Ray Rodrigues (Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail) sits down with writers, directors, and actors to watch their films and talk about their careers, creative process, and behind-the-scenes dirt. It's part interview, part commentary track, and part riffing. Listen in or watch along at home!
Jonah drops out of the air vents to watch Toy Soldiers with actor Wil Wheaton!
By the time he turned 18, Wil had spent half of his life acting, but the abuse he suffered on and off set left him disillusioned and depressed. Then he joined a cast of fellow young actors in Toy Soldiers and his interest in filmmaking was renewed.
Wil tells Jonah about making connections via punk rock, the dangers of fake bullets, aborted helicopter rides, quitting (and later returning to) show business, and ethical guidelines for the parents of child actors.
