One of the hardest-working actors in film and television today—and certainly one of the most prolific—Eric Roberts has more than six hundred completed screen credits to his name (including his Oscar-nominated performance in Runaway Train and his Golden Globe Award-nominated performance in King of the Gypsies and Star 80), plus another ninety projects that are either filming right now or in pre- or post-production. Eric’s work in television includes a co-starring role on the ABC sitcom Less Than Perfect, recurring roles in Heroes, The Righteous Gemstones, and The Young and the Restless, and such made-for-TV movies as the Emmy-nominated television adaptation of In Cold Blood.
Among his most recent roles, Eric co-stars with Lana Wood and a very talented newcomer named Jeff Yazzie in Dog Boy, an offbeat character piece about the unlikely friendship between a self-absorbed Hollywood actress whose best days are behind her and a young Navajo slacker who skateboards through life—literally—despite being pursued by the mob. Eric Roberts joins us in our second hour.
The latest film from the husband-and-wife production team of Paul and Patty Winters, Dog Boy is now available for streaming on demand on Flixwest, a fast-growing commercial-free streaming channel that particularly specializes in independent films. You can find Flixwest on IOS, Roku, your Amazon Fire Stick, and any web-connected device.
Also this week: We will welcome back Emmy Award-winning writer, producer, and director Joseph Dougherty. Joe’s screenwriting credits include such acclaimed television series as thirtysomething, Judging Amy, Once and Again, Saving Grace, and Pretty Little Liars; the much heralded stage play Chester Bailey; and such HBO film productions as Cast a Deadly Spell and the 1993 remake of Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman.
As unlikely as this sounds, the original 1958 screen version of Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman not only led Joe on the path to becoming a writer, but led to a decade-long friendship with Mark Hanna (the original screenwriter of Fifty Foot Woman) and annual gifts of fresh mangoes. That is one of the many stories that Joe shares in his new book, A Screenwriter’s Companion: Instruction, Opinion, Encouragement. Joseph Dougherty joins us in our first hour.
A Screenwriter’s Companion offers insights and advice, both practical and nonpractical, to writers and would-be writers about the writing process, how to survive in “the business,” and reflections on the influences that led Joe to a successful career. A Screenwriter’s Companion is available now through Amazon.com as well as your local bookseller; a select number of autographed editions are available through Fayetteville Mafia Press.
