EJ Podcast 012: True Blood’s Joe Manganiello

Published on January 27, 2014 by in EJ Podcast

Below is the latest “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guest today True Blood’s Joe Manganiello who is best known for his role as the werewolf, Alcide, on HBO’s TRUE BLOOD.

During the podcast, Joe talks with EJ about growing up in Pittsburgh, his fear of his intimidating and “tough as nails” father, the divorce of his parents and how that affected him. He also discusses his relationship with his parents, and growing up awkward looking, with bottle thick glasses, ears that stuck out, and a bunch of fake front teeth due to getting hit in the face by a baseball bat.

They further talk about Joe’s new production company “Banner 359” and where that came from, his book “EVOLUTION,” about working out and getting healthy, his upcoming documentary that he produced and directed, “La BARE,” his troubles with alcoholism and his triumph of staying sober for over a decade, and of course TRUE BLOOD and how he got the role of Alcide.

EJ says that it was a great talk that he looks forward to continuing in the near future.

Listen and Enjoy.

EJ Podcast 011: Remembering Chris Farley

Published on January 24, 2014 by in EJ Podcast

Below is a new “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guests today Betty Cahill and Kevin Farley they remember the great comic, Chris Farley.

EJ says:

Chris Farley was a HUGE comedic impact on a lot of people, including myself. Watching him be funny was like watching Dali paint. I think about Chris once in a while if only becasue his movies are on Netflix Streaming or because I watch SNL every week and he may pop in my head, so I wanted to learn more about this comedy legend.

I was lucky enough to get one of his brothers, Kevin, who was very close with Chris to come and tell some stories about the good times and the bad. And also on the show is Betty Cahill who was on SNL with Chris for a season. And she has some stories, too. Of course, Chris is the main focus of the podcast but we also talked about the process of getting on SNL, what its like to work there (at least in the ealy 90′s), the late Del Close and the recently deceased Jay Leggett. Any SNL fan will find these stories interesting and any Farley fan will likely learn something knew about this comedy hero. Please share it with your friends and family on the social networks.

Please share with your friends on social media or any other way. Listen to EJ’s other podcasts because those are pretty amazing also.

Listen and Enjoy.

EJ Podcast – Remembering Jay Leggett

Published on January 18, 2014 by in EJ Podcast

Below is another “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast for 2014. EJ has as his guests today Kevin Dorf, Brian Blondell and Mitch Rouse.

EJ says:

You may not know Jay Leggett name but you have likely seen his face or know of his work… WITHOUT A PADDLE, THE FACTORY, EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH, IN LIVING COLOR, ER, ALLY MCBEAL, NYPD BLUE, the DREW CAREY SHOW, just to name a few. He was a writer, director, actor, producer, improvisor, friend and from what I’ve heard, an all around great guy.

 

Jay died suddenly of a heart attack on Nov 23, 2013 at age 50. But he lived quite a full life in that small amount of time.

I asked some of his closest friends to come and tell us more about the man. Kevin Dorf, Mitch Rouse and Brian Blondell were kind enough to come over and share with us. ENJOY!

Please share with your friends on social media or any other way. Listen to EJ’s other podcasts because those are pretty amazing also.

Listen and Enjoy.

Sue’s Dropping Calories to find a cure for Choroideremia

Published on January 14, 2014 by in Fundraising

Yesterday, we posted about Mark’s quest to lose 83 pounds to raise money for the Choroideremia Foundatoon.  Now, Sue has also promised to drop a few pounds to benefit the cause.   Read her story below:

sue-crf

As you may notice by the pictures, I have put on a couple of pounds over the years. Okay, more than a couple. I have decided that this is the year I going to get rid of those extra pounds. Just like anyone else trying to lose weight, I have come up with something to give me some incentive, and that’s where you come in!

I am asking you to sponsor me in my Dropping Calories 4 A Cure Campaign. You may either sponsor on a per pound basis or a set amount that you will donate when I have reached my goals. I plan to lose 80 pounds!!! Please email me to let me know your sponsorship level. I will be updating my sponsors on my progress.

As you know, my son Markie is losing his sight due to the effects of Choroideremia (CHM). My father has completely lost his sight from this disease. The money we raise will go to the Choroideremia Research Foundation, which is funding the research that we know will save Markies sight. Please help by sponsoring us today or by making a gift using the PayPal button on this page. Thank You from the bottom of my heart for not only helping me reach my goal of weight loss but helping with my ULTIMATE goal in life…..saving my son’s sight!!!

You can donate to Sue’s effort by clicking here or on the Paypal button below:
