It’s rare when we have the chance to have a fascinating chat with a guest who is a tremendous actor and star of one of the greatest sports movies of all time. We are very excited today to have Dennis Christopher of Breaking Away become acquainted with the calming shores of Sklarbro Country. Dennis tells us about why being emancipated set him free to follow his dream of acting, working with Robert Altman, and how he was offered the starring role of Breaking Away after he had already been cast in a different role. He also talks about expressing his ideas on the original look of the Dave Stoller character, the process of working with Quentin Tarantino on Django Unchained, and plays devil’s advocate during a round of Quick Hits. Plus, we call up Jerry Jones to get to the bottom of the Superbowl blackout. You won’t want to miss this incredible episode with one of the most inspirational actors of our time.
