  1. Congrats to your little bundle of joy, Paul!
    If you guys plan to do a review of “Total Recall” next week, we can probably do a pre-recorded conversation for next week’s show (especially with the fact that I worked about 8 days on the set of this movie). Anyway, holla back at me on twitter, aight?

    Peace!

    1. Thanks Gary. It has been a hectic week to say the least ha ha.

      It looks like a Total Recall review is sidelined for 119. Hopefully we can come back to it when it gets a video release, there is certainly allot to say about it in regards to the original and other Philip K Dick stories made into films. It’s too bead if your scene got cut, but perhaps it will pop up in the extra features as well. 🙂

      1. Actually, another fellow Total Recall background actor told me that I was indeed seen on the ending. Only thing is, I got really blurred out and I fell asleep during the screening. So I basically grew a beard and wore sandals only to become a big brown blur on the big screen. Hopefully, Guillermo del Toro do this to me for “Pacific Rim”. lol! Although I did take a nap in a forklift for the entireity of a scene on his movie.

    1. Thanks for the link Matt. Interesting bit of hero-trading going on there if that goes through. My guess would be that if Marvel is going ahead with an Infinity Gauntlet storyline in future films it makes sense to get Surfer and the Eater of Worlds back in their camp. If that hold true, I hope they do more than just depict Galactus as a big cosmic storm cloud 😉 .
