Welcome to recess guys! Take a load off. Lean back and kick off your shoes, unless your at work. Then for the sake of those around you, do not do that!
We have made it half way through the week and you know what that means! We get to bring you some of our thoughts from a weeks worth of “news” and an awesome interview to wrap it up! This week we have all sorts of good stuff and we get to talk with Charles Baker. Don’t recognize the name? How about Skinny Pete from Breaking Bad? Thats more like it! We talk food, anime, and the future with him and bring it to you. So let’s dig in!
Alright guys, right off the bat we have to deal with something. I am all about news and rumors from movies, video game, etc but this is just a little rediculous. We got the first official picture from the Antman set, which only started shooting yesterday, and the internet blew up.
For one, i’m not even sure this movie will be any good (I’m sure it will be… name the last movie that Marvel screwed up) and for two, this picture doesn’t even have an interesting piece to it. Besides the fact that Paul Rudd got the crap kicked out of him (notice the bandages on his eyebrow) This picture literally means nothing. Shooting started… hurray! Come on. I at least wanna see him in the suit or something cool. Am I the only one?
If you didn’t already see it, the Agents of SHIELD television show has picked up its’ newest member! Adrianne Palicki has signed on the play the popular superhero, Mockingbird! As for what this means for the story…your guess is as good as mine. The one thing you can not say is that the show did not just get a huge boost in the looks department. Not that she isn’t a great actresses or anything, because she is, but still…
This show, for me, was really slow and lacked what I expected from a Marvel production. The story was good, but not well delivered if you ask me. These new additions may be just the shot in the arm this show needed. I guess only time will tell though.
We want to take this time away from movie and game news to do something a little different. We want to ask you, the reader, a question and get your two cents on the subject. You come and read this blog every week, we hope, and listen to us blather on and on about what we think about numerous subjects. We want your input!
So here is the question for this week. What game are you most looking forward to seeing this holiday season? Is it Assassin Creed Unity? Maybe Warriors of Hyrule? Or possible even Super Smash Brothers for the 3DS/WiiU?
Tell us in the comments below. It doesn’t have to be any of these games but just the one that you are looking forward to the most. We can’t wait to reads your responses!
We recently got an awesome chance to interview someone that weall loved. He was on the epic show Breaking Bad but also did numerous other roles and voices of some of our favorite character from the anime One Piece!
Getting to talk with Charles Baker was an awesome experience and we wanted to take a quick second before releasing the interview to say thank you! Make sure to check out all the awesome projects he has coming out!
Now down to business! Here we go!
Hello, we wanted to take a second to thank you so much for taking the time to answer a few questions for us!
While I am sure that you get this a lot, I love you in Breaking Bad. Skinny Pete was one of the funniest parts to me and brought laughs to very serious show. But I was interested to read that you were involved in the anime One Piece. How did you come about working on that?
The version of One Piece I was in was produced by FUNIMATION. I did voices for several different shows they did. It started while I was working on a short film in Fort Worth, TX as an extra; one of the other extras and I were talking and I mentioned that I would love to do voices for anime. Turns out, he was a director for Funimation and liked me enough to just bring me in to do some random voices. It grew from there.
I saw that you have quite a few projects coming in the next year or so and wondered if you could tell us a little more about b those and the path you are taking your career?
I have 5 features coming out! All of them are different types of roles and characters. Coming out first is WILD, directed by Jean-Marc Valeė (Dallas Buyers Club). I play TJ, a bow hunter that the main character, played by Reese Witherspoon, encounters on her journey.
In AD INEXPLORATA, a mission-to-Mars drama, I play Capt. Frank Worsely, an officer on a space station which supplies the ship for its one-way mission, who may have spent just a little too much time alone in the confines of space.
YOU CAN’T WIN is a period piece, set in 1920’s, based on the memoir of Jack Black, a criminal vagabond, played by Michael Pitt, who is encouraged by my character, FREMONT OLDER, the editor for the San Francisco Chronicle at the time, to tell his story in an effort to find a way to reform the US penal system.
AUGUST FALLS is a mystery by Sam Hancock, based on a book by Matthew McKay. I play Jonas Prine, the owner of the apartment building where our mystery takes place.
And lastly, ELEVEN ELEVEN, a sci-fi comedy and my first lead role! I’m equally excited and horrified about this one coming out! I hope the audience finds it as much fun as we had making it! I play Tim Faris, a sort of social outcast/ “Trekkie” who desperately wants the world to know that he’s been abducted by aliens, but, at the same time, desperately needs to keep a deep secret about that encounter from his wife.
My goal is to constantly challenge myself and grow as an actor. I’d like be able to play every role that comes my way, no matter how challenging the character is!
To me nothing is better than a good pizza after a long day. What is your favorite food to eat?
My comfort food is sushi!
Now we have to throw in a least one Breaking Bad question. Can you tell us a funny story from behind the scenes that will stick with you forever?
Every moment on that set will stick with me forever, but, the time that Jonathan Banks, who played “Mike” jokingly threatened to punch me in the heart if I wasted any time messing up my lines in our only scene together, was pretty special to me. He’s always been an acting hero of mine, so, it was a pretty epic moment for me.
Do you think that Skinny Pete will make an appearance on the new show Better Call Saul? We’ve heard that Mr. White may be making an appearance.
I have no idea! It was hinted at when the series was just being conceived, but, I haven’t heard from anyone since. I’d love to be a part of it, but, I’m beginning to suspect they don’t want me.
Thank you again so much for taking the time to answer these questions for us. We can not wait to read all your answers!
No problem! Thanks for taking the time to ask!
Well that’s all folks! Make sure to check us out on Facebook here! and keep a look out for our all new official website coming soon! Till next week!
