TGB Episode 40: Enter the Grid (Guest: Tron - Bruce Boxleitner)

December 15, 2010

Bruce Boxleitner - The Golden Briefcase

On this week's very special Tron-themed episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by our editor Alex Billington to conduct a Q&A with Tron himself - actor Bruce Boxleitner. As we all know, Tron Legacy (watch the trailer!) hits theaters on Friday, and Boxleitner returns after 28 years to play Alan Bradley again. Listen in as the guys go over the phenomenon that is Tron and hear a few of Bruce's stories of the making of the first and second movies. Due to a small technical glitch, this episode is simply just the talk with Boxleitner this time, but it's 56 minutes long and definitely worth listening to, so check it out below!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (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!

    Thanks for mentioning Scarecrow! I was born the fall it went off the air (87) but I watched reruns on The Family Channel when I was a kid. Loved it! When Dad first showed me Tron I was like 9 or 10. We rented the VHS from the local video store (good times). I didn't have a clue who Jeff Bridges was but Boxleitner had my attention. I'd kill to meet him. I found out I just missed him at Comic Con this year. Apparently he stopped by the booth where Trek stars were signing not long after I left. I think I cried a little. Maybe one day I'll save money and get on a plane when I see he's booked an appearance somewhere. That or he should come do a Babylon 5 convention in MN. Didn't like that show but hey! I hear he isn't in the film as Tron that much. For BEING Tron that sucks, but as you all discussed, I hope he has a bit of a career bump from this. He was on NCIS a few weeks ago. That was good to see. He looked even better than the clips of Alan in the trailer.
