“Oh man, I shot Marvin in the face.” These are the words John Travolta says after obliterating the face of this week’s guest, Phil LaMarr. Phil joins Matt to finally lay all the myths of Pulp Fiction to rest. Was Marvin originally supposed to survive? And what’s Marvin’s real deal, anyway? And what’s in the damned briefcase? Phil answers all of these questions as well as tells us about the real fear he felt in his scene with Samuel L. Jackson, the approach he takes when working on an impression, and his first job on the Mr. T cartoon while still attending high school. Plus, Matt shares which actors were in consideration to be in Pulp Fiction in the return of I Wasn’t There Too! Check out the Rambo Cartoon Matt mentions in this ep here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eliQEStzhu4
