TGB Episode 28: Everyone is a Director (Guest: John Cooper)

September 15, 2010

The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest John Cooper from to discuss their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD & Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for Clint Eastwood's Hereafter and the Finnish holiday horror film Rare Exports, relive the awesome Dick Tracy and much more! The main topic of the night was a discussion on actors turned directors (in honor of the Ben Affleck directed The Town in theaters this Friday). The guys go over some of the more well known examples of this and talk about the effects of transitioning from in front of the camera to behind it. Enjoy!

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!

guys heres another correction about "Red Riding" the accent they using is not Cockney they using a strong northern Yorkshire accent. old Cockney accent is mostly used in East End of London not Yorkshire were they accent sometimes harder to understand. most people from Northern England their accent is harder to understand thats why some American audience might not get what they saying.
