Ep 149: Shaka King, Trae Harris & Tone Tank • John Anderson • Matthew Perkins & Aaron Beelner

Jul 10, 2013

[5 mins. 40 secs.] In this episode of Filmwax Radio, I welcome the team behind the comedy "Newlyweeds" including director Shaka King, and actors Trae Harris and Tone Tank. A match made in stoner heaven turns into an ugly love triangle when Lyle (Amari Cheatom) cannot choose between Nina (Harris) or Mary Jane. The film is having a Rooftop screening on the roof at the Trilok Fusion Center for the Arts, 143 Waverly Avenue at Myrtle Avenue on Thursday, July 18th.

[35 mins. 50 secs.] Journalist John Anderson sits with myself and producer Betty Kaplan for a discussion about film criticism and some of the current films on the landscape. Anderson is a contributor to Newsday, The New York Times, and Variety to name just a few outlets.

[1 hr. 12 mins. 15 secs.] Last up is my discussion with filmmaker Matthew Perkins who has a new indie comedy called "The Little Tin Man". Also joining in on the discussion is his film's lead actor, actor Aaron Beelner. A struggling dwarf actor (Beelner) gets tired of being overlooked for roles, so he auditions to be the Tin Man in a remake of "The Wizard of Oz."
