It’s here! After another year of the Frotcast in the books, listener Schnitzel Bob edited up a compilation of this year’s best bits from the Frotcast (or Schnitzel Bob’s favorites, anyway). It’s hard to say whether this is more of a greatest hits or a blooper reel. Or whether those things are different on the Frotcast. This has everything, from Royalty Freestyle songs to terrible accents to strange characters to celebrity stories and more terrible accents. Matt’s Alex Jones impression, Vince’s new butthole, it’s all here. As always, you can donate at Patreon dot come slash Frotcast. Frot on and Happy New Year from your Frot fam. Check out the full track listing on Filmdrunk.

TO AVOID STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI SPOILERS, SKIP MINUTE 14 TO MINUTE 55. That’s right, this week we’re talking Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with guests Matt Lieb from The Star Wars Show, PR man and author Ed Zitron, and comedian Jacob Sirof (joining me, Vince Mancini from FilmDrunk). But first, we discuss Wyatt Koch, heir to the Koch Brothers’ fortune, and his fascinating line of horrendously ugly shirts (failsons being relevant to the Star Wars universe). After that we’ve got a HEATED Star Wars: The Last Jedi discussion, and we finish things off with the worst take of the week, regarding the famous short story “Cat Person.” Enjoy and Frot on, donate at Patreon dot com slash Frotcast.

Greg Sestero is perhaps best known for playing Mark in The Room (“Oh, hi, Mark.”). He’s also the co-author of The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. Michael Rousselet is co-director of Dude Bro Party Massacre III, which also stars Greg Sestero. Rousselet also happens to be one of the first people to discover The Room, helping to make it a cult hit, who’s credited for starting many of The Room’s now familiar audience participation trends, like throwing spoons at the screen. I got them together 12 years almost to the day after the first The Room screening, to ask Greg what it was like being Tommy Wiseau’s producing partner and roommate, his teenage modeling days in Europe, and what it’s like having had his life inexorably tied to Tommy Wiseau’s for close to 20 years now. And to ask Mike about the first time he saw The Room, and what possessed him to force everyone he knew to watch it. How old is Tommy Wiseau? Where is Tommy Wiseau actually from? How did Tommy Wiseau get so rich, and how could afford to blow $6 million on The Room? What does it all mean? We answer all or none of these questions on this week’s BookDrunk Radio.
This week on the Frotcast, Matt Lieb and Jane Harrison join Vince and Brendan to discuss Donald Trump’s McDonald’s order, deliver our holiday movie guide, and talk about the Netflix documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond.

This week, former Film.com head critic Laremy Legel joins us to talk about the curious phenomenon of trailer reaction videos — specifically as it relates to Avengers: Infinity Wars — and, because it’s inescapable, the latest round of sexual harassment firings.
