This week on the Frotcast, we blooped in our buddy Laremy Legel, live from the Toronto Film Festival where he eagerly awaits Looper. Topics include The Ambassador, Chopped, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (which Bret just saw), Blue Valentine, Joe “Uncool Dad” Philbin, and whether Breaking Bad is better than The Wire (spoiler alert: it’s not, not even close).
We had some complications on our Chicago trip and Running Man screening November 3rd and 4th, but it’s still happening, now we’re just fronting the cash ourselves. We’ll have a Kickstarter up soon where you can buy advance tickets and help us feel less scared about the money outlay. Yay?! Oh, and we discussed Chuck Norris, and his fear of 1000 years of darkies. Enjoy!
