Originally Aired: 03/06/20 – We review Onward. We talk with actor Connor Jessup of Locke & Key. We also talk with Toronto ComiCon organizer James Armstrong.

Show Notes:

We play Mr. Green’s recent sit down with actor Connor Jessup from Netflix’s Locke & Key for a fun interview! You will hear that interview in its entirety. Connor Jessup was born in Toronto, Canada. An actor since the age of eleven, he is best known for his role as Ben Mason in TNT’s sci-fi series Falling Skies and as Taylor Blaine in the Emmy-winning ABC drama American Crime. Other notable roles include an early stint on the Discovery Kids series The Saddle Club, and acclaimed lead performances in Blackbird and Closet Monster. Jessup is also a writer, director and producer. He directed the documentary A.W. A Portrait of Apichatpong Weerasethakul for the Criterion Collection, and has written and directed several shorts — including the ghost drama Boy and the fantasy drama Lira’s Forest.

Our review of Onward starring Tom Holland, Chris Pratt and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, go on a journey to discover if there is still a little magic left out there in order to spend one last day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.

We also talk with Toronto Comicon organizer James Armstrong. James has been a longtime friend of the show. We’ve been long time supporters of the local convention scene here in Toronto. Catch our interview with James to find out more about Toronto Comicon 2020, taking place March 20 to 22 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Tickets are available HERE!
