The Weird and the Weary

Sep 17, 2019

A lot of people may dream about being a star hence why there are actors. And YouTube celebrities. Snapchat. IG. Twitch. OMG we get it! Everyone is a star! But sometimes that allure isn't all as glamorous as depicted. Sometimes people get what they think is the part that will jumpstart their career but winds up becoming a wake-up call to the reality that they should never have started. Which is the unfortunate case for Jake Lloyd, a child actor who had starred in "Jingle All the Way" with Arnold Scwarzenegger and "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" as young Anakin Skywalker. Then we chat about the case of Scott Schwartz, the actor who portrayed Flick in the cult classic "A Christmas Story". He was the one who got his tongue stuck to a flagpole during winter on a stupid bet. Well, he wound up sticking his tongue on a different kind of pole later in life and would wind up eBaying Corey Haim's possessions left behind after his death. At Haim's family's request. And finally,  Joe Maggard, a set crewman who claimed to have been Ronald McDonald for a period of time. But actually was not such a nice guy. Especially when he would call someone in the McDonald persona to threaten bodily harm. Take your fryer smelling arse outta heah! So fasten your chin straps and check out this week's episode, Always Have a Backup Plan.
