TGB Episode 26: A Vast Clooneyverse (Guest: Daniel Carlson)

September 1, 2010

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by Daniel Carlson from Pajiba and the Hollywood Reporter to discuss their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD and Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours and Guillermo del Toro produced Julia's Eyes, respond to listener email about German Cinema and much more! The main topic of the night was a recap of the massive filmography of George Clooney (in honor of The American, which actually arrives in theaters today). The guys talk through Clooney's diverse career and highlight some of their favorite Clooney movies. Listen in!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 6:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

@Tim Buel Have you ever considered adding a segment to the show where you estimate the next week's domestic gross totals? I think it would be interesting to hear what you and Jeremy would guess, and the following week you could quickly go back and see how close you guys were. Just a thought. Great show!
