In anticipation of the 40th anniversary, former child actor Cary Guffey joins Matt to share his memories of playing little Barry Guiler in Stephen Spielberg’s 1977 classic Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Cary discusses what it was like to act in a movie before he’d seen one and explains how he earned the nickname “One Take Cary.” Then, he tells the story of how he called out Richard Dreyfuss for missing a line during a scene, shares what it was like to be a part of the cultural zeitgeist from such a young age, and reveals the incident that made him decide to give up acting.
