Oh hi, Filmdrunk readers! I didn’t see you there because thousands of miles separates us, most likely. It’s time for another ACTION PACKED edition of the FilmDrunk Frotcast – literally the world’s only film podcast that also covers television. Which is fortunate for you because this week we talk about the Emmy awards with Uproxx’s own Zach Johnston and Roundball Rock’s Joey Devine. Also featured in this episode: Vince talks about Sean Penn’s “issues” with the MeToo movement and then proceeds to reveal that Sean Penn sexually assaulted Madonna (seriously) ((allegedly… but seriously)), Matt Lieb explores his love of Mystic River via Sean Penn impersonation, and Zach discusses living in Germany and the many, many types of sausages they enjoy there, while also teaching Matt where and what the Berlin wall was. If you love FILM AND TELEVISION, you’ll LOVVVVVE this podcast. (-Matt Lieb)
This week’s Frotcast… well, let’s call it “expansive.” Comedians Joe Sinclitico and Sal Calanni join Vince and Matt in the Frotquarters. We finish off with some Royalty Freestyle, but before we get to that, we’re talking about another YouTube star tanking at a comedy festival, porn (sorry), Generation Wealth, Blindspotting, and whether Tom Cruise has ever seen a movie or watches porn.

This week on the Frotcast, I’m walkin’ heah! Which is to say, we’re talking Gotti, the first mob movie directed by E from Entourage and apparently written by a bot. Former comedian and current owner of Bernadette’s, the dumbest bar in LA, Jim Van Blaricum joins Vince and Matt in the Frotquarters this week. Other topics include: Vince’s trip to the Aspen Food and Wine Classic, The New Yorker’s horny review of The Incredibles 2 (The Incredibles 2: Unlikely Thirst Trap), and a $350 chocolate bar that says “FARTS.” Frot on and enjoy, donate at Patreon.com/Frotcast.
This week on the Frotcast, comedians Red Scott and Jeff Anaya join Vince and Matt Lieb in the Frotquarters to discuss HBO’s remake of Rad Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 starring Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon.
