Actress Erin Carufel – Ep054

They don’t know how they became Facebook friends, but that doesn’t stop Evan from interviewing Actress Erin Carufel on her BIRTHDAY! Erin talks about being Miss Oregon, using tae kwon do to land a part (and damage an audition room) and working alongside Matthew McConaughey in The Lincoln Lawyer. She also reveals how she approaches auditions, what goes into her intensive role research, and where to go for free stuff on your birthday. Plus, her affinity for Africa, her upcoming honeymoon and some questions for Evan. It’s her birthday so show some love and listen to this fun (and awkward) interview!

Actor Kevin O’Grady – Ep051

Evan sits down with Actor Kevin O’Grady in a random sweltering bunker to talk all things acting. Hear how Kevin found acting, how he booked 50 commercials coming up the ranks, and what some of his acting highlights are. He can currently be seen in Hallmark Channel’s Garage Sale Mystery with Lori Loughlin (aka Aunt Becky from Full House). He also has some CW cred, but nothing compares to when Evan wrote for Kevin when he played The Grinch is a Christmas skit. We’re all over the place in this episode, which is what happens when you interview a Canadian.

Actress Robin Riker – Ep050

To celebrate 50 SOCIALLY AWKWARD interviews, Evan ventures to the celebrity wing of his Facebook friends to interview Actress Robin Riker! A third-generation actor and veteran of TV, film and theater, Robin has seen it all and done it all, which is why she has a book out called A Survivor’s Guide To Hollywood – How To Play The Game Without Losing Your Soul. Robin also recounts getting started in acting, auditioning for her parents, arriving in Hollywood and how auditions have changed for her over the years. She was also “Sharon Potter” on one of Evan’s favorite shows, Get A Life, and they discuss the show, Chris Elliot and how one episode made TV Guide’s top funny tv moments of all-time! 

Robin and Evan then shift gears to talk about the direction of SAG-AFTRA and Robin offers her dismayed reaction to the recently passed TV/Theatrical contracts. Why does she think it’s the worst contract ever? And why was she against the merger? Robin lays out the facts and offers a behind-the-scenes look at how the actors’ union operates. And did I mention she is the same Riker that New York City’s Riker’s Island is named after? All this and even some Inside The Actor’s Studio questions. It’s more awesome than awkward for Episode 50!

Actor Steve Moulton – Ep007

Actor STEVE MOULTON (Sharknado, Waking, Impress Me) joins Evan for a massive nerd-out session. First, they discuss Steve’s movie credits and then Steve tells Evan how Kevin Smith played a role in his playing a clerk in Sharknado (12:25). They later talk Marvel superheroes and compare their meeting John Cena stories (18:54). Steve is also an avid fan of Disneyland so he offers some insider tips if you are thinking of going (27:39) and you bet he has an opinion on the Disney/Star Wars partnership as well as the new Star Wars movies (36:21). Evan then finds out more about Steve’s movie-centric podcast “View the Right Thing” (42:42) and finally, they lament on how difficult it is to keep up with all their favorite TV shows. #nerdlife
