Jason Deline on Batman ’66



There’s no better guest to take us into Fan Expo than actor Jason Deline, who brings his profound love for Batman: The Movie — and its star, the late Adam West — into the studio. Your genial host Norm Wilner has Bat-Shark-Repellent standing by, because he’s considerate like that.


Luke Lalonde on Adaptation



Musician Luke Lalonde makes his acting debut in Pavan Moondi’s Sundowners (opening in Toronto this Friday, August 25th, at TIFF Bell Lightbox), so he drops in to discuss Spike Jonze’s amazing Adaptation, the one where Charlie Kaufman writes himself into a movie about Charlie Kaufman writing himself into a movie. Your genial host Norm Wilner was pretty psyched about this one.


Alexander Carson on Distant Voices, Still Lives



With his first feature O, Brazen Age! arriving on iTunes today, writer-director Alexander Carson stops in to discuss Terence Davies’ autobiographical 1988 drama Distant Voices, Still Lives and its profound impact on his own artistic development. Your genial host Norm Wilner made sure to put the kettle on.


Kelly McCormack on Phantom of the Paradise



Actor, writer and producer Kelly McCormack — currently killing it as Zeph on Killjoys and Eloida on The Neddeaus of Duquesne Island — brings big love for Brian de Palma’s Phantom of the Paradise, the 1974 cult classic that reimagines Faust for the club age. Your genial host Norm Wilner spends the episode wondering if they’ve both been dosed.


William Oldroyd on Cache



With his first feature Lady Macbeth is in theaters in the U.S. and Canada, it’s the perfect time for director William Oldroyd to drop in and talk about his fascination with Michael Haneke’s Cache, the 2005 thriller in which Daniel Auteuil and Juliette Binoche are tormented by an unknown stalker with a very patient camcorder. Your genial host Norm Wilner has never owned a video camera, honest.
