Episode 585: Comedic Actors, Dramatic Roles

 After a successful summer last year, a summer of the fans, a... FanboySummer if you will, we decided if it worked once, it's gotta work again, right?  I mean, look at Zoolander Too!  And Blair Witch Project! And Thor Love & Thunder! If we struck gold once, it's bound to happen again!

Thus, FanboySummer Part Deuce! 

And in our first of 9 Fanboy Summer eps, we welcome in Jonathan Hile of the Captain's Log & Lightsaber Podcast!  

Up first, the return of the DbIMDb game, taking on the algorithm of what IMDb thinks is most popular.  A little catch up with Hile, discussing the podcast, and then a dive into the Top 5 topic...

Tonight, a take on actors known for their comedic chops who give incredible dramatic turns in certain roles - be it a serious legacy only to turn to comedy, then back to drama (Leslie Nielsen) or someone who had been dabbling in the drama all along, but was only really known for their comedy prowess (Robin Williams) or even someone finding their footing in Hollywood (Jennifer Aniston) and even more.

Stick around for a great little bit on Adventures by Disney because why not.
