[TEASER] Mel Gibson helps Shia LaBeouf discover Jesus



Hey all, new frotcast is here and you can listen to the whole thing on Patreon.

This week, comedian Joe Sinclitico returns to the Frotcast to discuss all the hottest new #content, including a new Josh Duhamel movie with Mel Gibson, the ideal form of “Hollywood Dumb Guy,” Tom Hanks’ son Chet Haze speaking at a Recovery Fest in Winnipeg (and what causes a famous son to become either a Colin Hanks or a Chet), the latest wild stuff that Ezra Miller has been up to (including the time he stole a polygamist’s wife in Hawaii), and finally, we round things out with a discussion of the 2011 documentary The Hollywood Complex. This is a documentary about child actors that Joe’s wife discovered it on Amazon Prime and it is absolutely wild. It’s the perfect snapshot of pre-#MeToo Hollywood, the very last time casting directors would ever be willing to say this kind of stuff on camera, and all in all is the movie that seems most like a Christopher Guest movie that isn’t actually a Christopher Guest movie. It is Exhibit A for why child actors probably shouldn’t be a thing.

Join now to hear it! Here’s a teaser in which Joe Sinclitico describes a new Shia Labeouf movie.


Frotcast Bonus: Ti West on ‘Pearl,’ ‘X’, And ‘Maxxxine’



Well, it’s that time of the month again, free feed Frotcast fans. That’s right, I did an interview and now I’m sharing it with you. Perhaps you saw X when it came out in March? That was about a group of kids making a porn in the seventies who travel out to an isolated farmhouse where terror ensues. Now, just (*counts on fingers*) six months later, the sequel is opening. Or rather, the prequel. Pearl tells the origin story for the creepy old lady played by Mia Goth in X (who also played the porn starlet), again starring Goth in a story set in 1918, just after the Spanish Flu pandemic. Both movies were directed by my interview subject, Ti West. If you’re a long-time Frotcast listener, you may remember West from my interviews with him for The Sacrament and In A Valley Of Violence. Which is to say that Ti and I known each other for a bit, even though 90% of our conversations are generally about MMA, including the very end of this one. I admit it feels (and probably even sounds) a little weird when I do my Teri Gross act, but I’m also genuinely curious about the insane process of shooting two (and soon to be three, since the X/Pearl sequel, Maxxxine was greenlit shortly after we recorded this) horror movies back to back in New Zealand. And it’s nice to hear it from someone you know who isn’t just giving you the stock press tour answers.


TEASER: God Save The Queen, God Save Harry Styles



(This is a teaser. For the full episode, become a Patron at Patreon.com/Frotcast).

God save the Queen! The fascist regime! She kicked off before the Frot… Now Vince and Matt have lots of thoughts…

That’s right, this week, the Queen has died and we welcomed all-star Frotcast guest Jessica Sele back to Frottingham Palace to talk all about it. Was she a good queen? Was she a bad queen? Did she do an imperialism? Is The Crown real life? Most of all, what does Frank Stallone think about it all?

Once we got through discussing the Liz and Frank of it, we got down to discussing more pressing geopolitical matters. Such as the Don’t Worry Darling press tour, all the dumb things Harry Styles says, whether he spat on Chris Pine, and whether Olivia Wilde is the real villain here or if it’s just a typical case of the media trying to bring down down a powerful woman who named herself after Oscar Wilde. Hey, remember Booksmart?

Believe it or not, we managed to squeeze in ALL THAT before we even got to our Big Review Of The Week™, of Rings Of Power, the new Tolkien show about how Elves just wanna have fun. Matt is a piggy, so he loved it. I’m Peter Jackson hater and I only watched the first 47 minutes so I was bored. Jessica, who’s some kind of damned Tolkien scholar, was in between. More importantly, she actually has some insights into what that old limey fart was actually on about in all those books. We wrap things up with a spirited debate over whether this latest round of “The racists hate the woke show!” is worth paying attention to. We really think you’ll enjoy it. But if you don’t, remember: no refunds.


TEASER: Frotcast 520 – ‘House Of The Dragon’ And Awful New Startups, With Jessica Sele



To hear the full episode, subscribe to the Frotcast at Patreon dot com slash frotcast.

This week on the Frotcast, comedian Jessica Sele joins Matt and Vince to discuss oh so many things. Things such as House Of The Dragon, the new HBO prequel for Game Of Thrones about House Targaryen. It opened with a dragon and I went “ugh” inside and then I watched the entire thing. Does that mean I have to apologize to all the Baby Yoda people I made fun of because I’ve proved that I’m just as much of a piggie? We also discuss the rottweiler that may or may not have caused Sylvester Stallone’s divorce, as well as the bull mastiff that Sylvester Stallone got tattooed on his arm over his wife’s face. Which is a normal thing that everyone does. Finally, we talk about a new startup that promises to make any user sound white and American over the phone, regardless of their actual voice. Technology, is there anything it can’t do?

[TEASER] Terrence Howard’s Magical Math



New patreon-only episode of the Frotcast out now!

Frotcast Bonus: BJ Novak On ‘Vengeance’



Hey, Frotcasters. Nice little treat for the free feed this week: I got to talk to BJ Novak for his new movie, Vengeance. You most likely know BJ Novak as Ryan from The Office, and that was about all I knew about Vengeance before I put it on. It turned out to be a funny riff on NPR and the podcast world, and making fun of NPR is of course very much up our alley here on the Frotcast (staaaaaged). BJ plays a wannabe Ira Glass type who goes to West Texas to do a podcast about the death of some girl he was hooking up with but doesn’t remember that well. It sort of evolves from a fish-out-of-water, Doc-Hollywood-with-a-podcaster type comedy to something almost resembling a thriller. It has Boyd Holbrook from Narcos and Ashton Kutcher, both doing some of their best work. It should be playing in a theater not too far from you right now. Anyway, I talked up BJ about NPR, working on Punk’d, and that quote about him saying going to Harvard made it harder that went around last week.


[TEASER] Meatspace Matt And Fran Talk Woodstock 99, Love Is Blind, And Matt’s Soberversary



Hey all,

Special treat for you this week as Matt and Matt’s wife Francesca went to Fresno to visit Vince and recorded a pod! It’s a great episode! Listen to the whole thing now on Patreon!


DESCRIPTION:

For the first time in what seems like years, the Frotcast is all back under the same roof. This week, Matt and wife/guest Francesca Fiorentini headed to the magical land of Fresno, CA to visit Vince and his wife and his beautiful new born baby. We all watched the new Netflix doc series about Woodstock 99 “Clusterf**k: Woodstock ’99” and talked endlessly about how it’s a lot better than the HBO Max documentary from a year earlier, but also dissect what makes Woodstock 99 so fascinating, and whether boomers trying to blame Fred Durst for telling people to break stuff rather than own up to gouging kids for water is an eerie harbinger for the current political era. We discuss some super annoying criticism of the reality series “Love is Blind,” with an appearance from Matt’s newest character, “Crying Buzzfeed Reporter.” Finally, it’s Matt’s 13th year of sobriety, so we kinda talk about that but not really. Enjoy hearing us all in the same room!
