My guest this week is actress and producer Simone Missick. Now most of you geeks out there remember Simone from her role as live-action comic book character Misty Knight from Marvel’s Luke Cage, The Defenders and Jessica Jones on Netflix. Her career has really taken off since then and she’s currently starring in All Rise as the lead! As Judge Lola Carmichael. She’s also currently starring as Trepp in Altered Carbon Season 2 as well. This is exactly the episode you need to listen to while you’re sheltering in place.. Stay safe out there and wash your hands!

Today’s guest is Marc Bernardin. If you are a blerd, you’d better put some respect on this man’s name! Marc has been a professional geek since before many of you were born. With a career that spans a couple of decades, Marc, is both an award-wining journalist and Hollywood scriptwriter. He worked for Entertainment Weekly for over a decade moving all the way up to senior editor. He has written for GQ, Wired, Details, Vulture, Playboy, and Empire. and is the former film editor for the Los Angeles Times and senior editor for The Hollywood Reporter. staff writer for Alphas (SYFY), Castle Rock (hulu), Treadstone (USA), and Carnival Row (Amazon Prime). He has written comic books for MarvelDC Comics, and Top Cow. (He wrote one of my faves Genius.). In our chat he breaks down what goes on in the writer’s room, how he went from journalism to scriptwriting and back again, and why you should never give up.

Hanelle Culpepper is an accomplished director in her own right. She has directed TV in Hollywood for years. She’s done plenty of action and genre shows like Sleepy Hollow, Supergirl and The Flash. But Hanelle has been thrust into the spotlight over the past month because she directed the pilot episode of Picard, the new series on CBSAllAccess that brought back Patrick Stewart into the role of Jean Luc Picard. Captain of the Enterprise from Star Trek Next Generation. What makes it even more significant, is the fact that she is actually the first woman to ever direct a Star Trek pilot in the history of the franchise. And of course the first Black woman as well. This episode is also a directing/producing masterclass, so if you know anyone who is a director-in-training, please send them this episode!

My guest this week is actress Parisa Fitz-Henley. I first saw Parisa on Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix when she played Luke’s wife Reva. You remember, the one that Jessica Jones killed while being controlled by the Purple Man? (I still feel some kind of way about that. She is best known for playing Fiji the resident witch on Midnight: Texas, a show that was a lot of fun, but sadly, was canceled on NBC. She’s now starring in the 3rd season of The Sinner with Matt Bomer and in the horror remake of Fantasy Island by Blumhouse. In addition to our chat, I’ also share a few things you should be checking out this Black History Month

So, the Oscars are this weekend. And this is important because of who my guest is this week. It’s none other than April Reign. The creator of the #Oscarssowhite hashtag, businesswoman, activist, mom and so much more! She joined me a couple of weeks ago for a chat the week the Oscars were announced. So we are clearly going to be talking about movies and entertainment and the state of the industry 6 years after she created this movement. I also got the scoop on how she got to go to the Oscar’s last year. I thought the Oscar’s invited her apparently they did not. (ALL THE TEA.)

\n\n\n\n

In this episode, I got a chance to learn a little bit about April’s background. For instance, I’ve had no idea that she had a law degree in campaign finance. She even gives us a little primer on it. Plus, her husband took the bar a second time so he could practice law in the state that she got a new job in. that’s love people!
And we also go into what we are happy about, like Matthew Cherry’s “Hair Love” nomination. The tea in this episode is piping hot!

This week’s  interview is with actor and writer William Jackson Harper. Many of you know him as Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place and sincethe end of ther series is upon us, I was super excited when the show’s reps reached out and asked if I wanted to interview him. In addition to The Good Place William was also seen in the Ari Aster horror movie Midsommar. And has one of the best scenes in the film I think. He’s also written a play and will be seen in the upcoming Amazon show Underground Railroad.

\n\n\n\n

Since this is a shorter episode I thought I’d also bring some geeky news back and share my thoughts on some trailers that dropped including New Mutants, Morbiusand Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and Black Widow.

Welcome to my first theblerdgurl podcast episode of the New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is relaxed, rested and not….completely freaking out that WWIII might be imminent. Hopefully, my interview this week will cheer you up, however. My guest is writer, comedian and actor Yedoye Travis. Many of you might know Yedoye from his podcast the Dark Tank as well as the youtube webshow Get In the Robot. He’s also writing for TV and acting in commercials as well. He is absolutely hilarious and he’s a really talented guy that has been blowing up. And I’m excited for you to hear this episode.

One thing I’m trying to do this year is to give you more content, more often, so I’m going to be digging in the vault sometimes and giving you access to some past interviews that didn’t make the podcast. This episode is the first of those. I recorded this conversation with Yedoye last year at NYCC 2019 and we talk a lot about anime, his hilarious podcast Dark Tank (and that Time that Dave Chappelle visited the live show). Plus, Yedoye is also writing for a new Kevin James show coming to Netflix about a NASCAR pit crew.

Meanwhile, Jamal Campbell has been quietly working in comics for years. He’s drawn everything from Spider-Man for Marvel to Green Arrow and Naomi for DC. But I first heard of him when he was pushing his indie comic. The Immortal Nadia Greene.

The post PODCAST: EXCLUSIVE Orlando Jones talks about what went down on American Gods in his own words appeared first on theblerdgurl.","duration_ms":3364368,"explicit":true,"external_urls":{"spotify":"https://open.spotify.com/episode/1eMNVTaC7SKTreBU0PD61a"},"href":"https://api.spotify.com/v1/episodes/1eMNVTaC7SKTreBU0PD61a","html_description":"

In the early morning hours of Saturday, December 14, 2019, Actor, writer and producer Orlando Jones took to social media to tell the world that he would not be returning to Season 3 of American Gods on STARZ. Two things made this announcement a shock: One, this was not a public press release or an official statement from the show and two, apparently the firing had occurred on September 10, 2019. Some 3 months before the announcement. Also, what he shared seemed to suggest that the new showrunner Charles Eglee had a severe problem with his character Mr. Nancy and Jones’ portrayal of the African God. And that his character was “not good for Black America.” I immediately reached out to the actor personally to talk to him about the situation and this podcast episode is that very discussion.

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

To be clear, this is not an investigative report into the show. Orlando Jones has always been very close to his fans and incredibly supportive of me and others in the Blerd community. That’s why I made the conscious decision to make this a podcast interview because I wanted fans to hear what Jones had to say in his own words. In the discussion, I asked several questions: Why was he fired? Why did he wait so long to tell everyone? Why did the studio wait? What is it that he would like fans to do now that they know? The answers will surprise you.

\n\n\n\n

Jones’ situation aside, American Gods has definitely had its share of problems over the past couple of seasons. The show was developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green and based on a sci-fi novel written by Neil Gaiman. Following a stellar first season, Fuller and Green were fired from the series. Following that, it was announced that Gillian Anderson would not be returning to the show as well. Fans were concerned, but not panicked because the nature of the show featured a rotating cast of characters, around Shadoe Moon (Ricky Whittle) and Wednesday/Odin (Ian McShane). Also, after Jones’ incredible guest appearance in Season 1 (which was just 2 scenes by the way), he was brought on as a regular to the series. Freemantle USA, the production company for the show, then announced Season 2 had a new showrunner in Jesse Alexander.

\n\n\n\n

According to Jones, that’s where things started going left. Turmoil in the writers’ room, poorly written scenes, last-minute rewrites needed just days before shoots, and more confusion. On the outside, the show seemed to be thriving, but like Emily Browning’s undead character Laura Moon, underneath, the production seemed to be falling apart. At the request of Executive Producers, Jones was asked to take on much of the co-writing responsibilities himself (of the POC characters at least). Including Anansi’s “Slavery is a cult” speech of Season 2 in episode 4 at the mortuary between Mr. Nancy, goddess Bilquis and Mr. Ibis (Demore Barnes), where they discuss the real-life issue of human trafficking. A scene that regained popularity after going to streaming and actually went viral last month. Apparently, after Jones had been fired.

\n\n\n\n

For the past few weeks, we’ve seen announcements of new cast members such as Wale, Danny Trejo and Julia Sweeney, as well as more of the original cast such as Crispin Glover (Mr. World) leaving the show. But until this last weekend, no one really knew what was going on.

\n\n\n\n

Since this interview, both Mousa Kraish (Jinn) and Pablo Schreiber (Mad Sweeney) have announced they were let go from the show as well. And they along with original showrunner Bryan Fuller and original writer Neil Gaiman showed support on twitter to Jones as well.

Phil Lamar has voiced over 250 characters in cartoons and anime in his career. As the voice of John Stewart on The Justice League, he was the only Green Lantern I recognized (until N.K. Jemisin created Sojourner of course ). Many of you remember him as the voice of Samurai Jack, or maybe Hermes Conrad on Futurama.  But he’s also an actor (Pulp Fiction) and comedian who honed his skills with The Groundlings and MaDTV.

\n

These days you can find Phil voicing Malefic Jones, on Supergirl, and he’s joined the cast of season 2 of Voyage to the Stars. An improv comedy geek podcast, that feels like a cross between Star Trek and Critical Role. He’ll be joining stars Felicia Day, Janet Varney, Steve Berg and Colton Dunnas the misfit crew who accidentally find themselves on the wrong side of a wormhole.

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

In this interview we talk about the show, the huge amount of scripted content out there, His work with the Groundlings in LA plus the hilarious comedy short series The Black Version featuring some of your favorite actors and actresses before they were famous. (It’s hilarious.) And of course, we get a few voices thrown in there too.  This was a great conversation with a veteran of the industry that really has a unique perspective on diversity, acting and staying true to your art.

Donald Faison is an actor, comedian, and voice actor, best known for playing Dr. Chris Turk in the ABC comedy-drama Scrubs(2001–2010). He’s also co-starred in Kickass 2, and voiced everything from Robot Chicken to Tron. Now he’s starring in a the new ABC series Emergence  (Tuesdays at 10pm/EST).

\n

A true Blerd, he’s a huge Star Wars fan (he even created his own animated Star Wars parody) which led him to be cast as the voice of “Hype Fazon”, a character which was actually written for him in the Star Wars animated series Star Wars Resistance.

Known mostly for his comedy, and improv skills, but in ABC Emergence, he gets to stretch is acting chops a bit and I was surprised to hear that he’d been turning down scripts in order to do a show like this.

Emergence stars Allison Tillman as Jo, a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident. The girl has no memory of what has happened or who she is. Jo takes her in while she investigates and it’s soon revealed that not only is someone after the child, but the girl has powers.

Donald plays Jo’s ex-husband Alex, who co-parents their daughter Bree, he has more than a few feelings about all of this. During this interview, Donald reveals what attracted him to Emergence and why The Mandalorian is everything.

I ’m back with a special episode! I got a chance to talk to one of the stars of the new Netflix Show Wu Assassins that just dropped on Netflix. Actor, stuntman and martial artist Lewis Tan. 

\n\n\n\n

In this interview, Tan and I talk about how he was born in England and grew up on Hollywood sets like Tim Burton’s Batman. where his father, Phillip Tan worked as a stunt coordinator. His father is a world champion Muy Thai this kickboxer, which of course he taught to his son. Lewis also ranks in Kung Fu, Ju-Jitsu and Kendo. We also talk about the changing image of Asian-Americans in Hollywood and how his roles in Deadpool 2, Into the Badlands, and now Wu Assassins have helped solidify his career. And yes, we did talk about Iron Fist.

\n\n\n\n

This interview was so much fun because I got to reminisce over martial movies and fangirl over styles and techniques. The only thing that would have made my interview with Lewis Tan more fun…was if it was in person.

Tony Weaver Jr. started Weird Enough Productions just out of college with a grant and created The Uncommons, a comic book series about a diverse group of superheroes with powers and abilities inspired by his love of anime. Echoing Green typically doesn’t give grants to comic book creators, but Weaver wanted to create more than a comic book publishing company, You see, Weird Enough creates comics along with their fans and has a curriculum for teachers to use in classrooms across the country to get and keep students interested in learning. Tony has given TED talks, won awards, been named one of Forbes 30 Under 30 (the only comic book creator to do so) and is helping kids across the country become heroes themselves, by inspiring them to help their own communities. Did I mention that he’s just 25 years old? I am fascinated, impressed and mildly terrified of Ton’y’s drive and focus and you will be too. This is not an episode that you want to miss!

On this episode, I sit down with Regine Sawyer, the founder of LockettDown Productions, Women in Comics Collective International and the upcoming WiNCCon which is in its 3rd year. She’s currently an artist-in-residence at Kickstarter. Find out all the amazing things that are involved with that program. Plus, what I think about Dark Phoenix happened, Black Mirror and how Apple is ditching iTunes and is selling is a very expensive new computer.

About Regine:

\n\n\n\n

Regine L. Sawyer is the Owner, Writer and Publisher at Lockett Down Productions; a cutting edge small press comic book company. Publishing books such as The Rippers, Ice Witch, Eating Vampires; and the Children’s book Willa, the Weeping, Weeping Willow. She is also the Coordinator and Founder of the Women in Comics Collective International. An organization that focuses on highlighting the merit and craft work of women working in the comic book industry. Out of that organization grew that she has created WiNC Con. A convention that helps support women creators in the comics book space. Well, Regine was named a Kickstarter Artist in residence at the end of last year, and I took a little trip over to the Kickstarter offices here in Brooklyn, NY to see what all the fuss was about.

In this special episode of theblerdgurl podcast, I got a chance to sit and talk with the director and stars of See You Yesterday. Director, Stefon Bristol, and stars Eden Duncan-Smith (C.J.) and Danté Crichlow (Sebastian). They’re real Blerds y’all! Not only did Eden grow up in a “House of Batman”, but she’s also a college Physics major. Danté has a few thoughts about proper time travel representation and is SERIOUS about playing the live-action version of Miles Morales. (We need to help make this happen okay?)

\n\n\n\n

Stefon also talks about his work under Spike Lee, how they landed a certain Back-to-the-Future star and has a few things to say to all of the folks who dragged him for the movie’s ending. This episode is a bit spoilery, so please go and watch See You Yesterday on Netflix and then come back here and listen!

I’m really excited about this interview because it’s the first EXCLUSIVE here at theblerdgurl! On this podcast episode, I’m talking to the creator of Stranger Comics, Sebastian A. Jones. I’ve been a fan of Stranger Comic’s series Niobe, (created with actress and activist Amandla Stenberg), for quite some time.  Last year, I spoke to him about more of the world of Asunda, the epic universe that all of the Stranger Comics titles share. during that interview, he mentioned that he had something big in the works, but I had no idea how big until Deadline reported that Jones had just signed a deal with HBO for a series adapting the world of Asunda. This means ALL of the Stranger Comics titles are quite possibly headed to series.

\n

In addition, Jones retains all his publishing rights to characters and tales, and HBO picks up the TV and Film rights to the characters onscreen. In this, his first interview since the announcement, Jones talks about the deal publicly and gives us a real-world view of the humble journey it took to build his company from scratch.

Welcome to the last blerdgurl podcast of 2018. Now originally, I was going to go over my favorite movie of the year, but we all know that it’s Black Panther so that seemed kind of redundant. And everyone has end-of-the-year-lists going. I even contributed to a couple myself over at SYFY. (And I don’t think anyone wants to listen to another end of the year list.)

\n\n\n\n

And then an amazing thing happened. I got a chance to interview father, actor, writer, producer, comedian Orlando Jones * And we had an amazing conversation. Most of you know him as Anansi from American Gods, but he’s also a comedian, actor, writer and activist. He even started his own advertising agency at 18 years old. He was a writer on A Different World, Sinbad, Ben Stiller Show, he co-wrote the pilot for Martin, basically wrote Roc with Charles S. Dutton and he helped launch FX. Yes. the network.

\n\n\n\n

We talked about just about every aspect of the business and how fandom has become a commodity. When it works, and sometimes when it backfires. (ex. – Sleepy Hollow). In fact, he dropped so much knowledge, I was silent for most of the interview.

\n\n\n\n

So you know he had to be saying something cuz y’all know I can talk.

\n\n\n\n

So sit back, relax and grab a pen, because Orlando has some knowledge to share.

It’s that time of year folks! In this episode, I’ll give you a little schedule of when a bunch of holiday shows and movies are dropping including Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, Aquaman, Bumblebee and more. There’s a bunch of new comics this week as well. In tech news, both Black Friday and Cyber Monday were huge for apps and Marriott’s breach is no joke. On top of that, Facebook is now trying to compete in the streaming game with its new deal with Joss Whedon. Speaking of streaming, today is the day to watch the premiere of Nightflyers, the new outer space thriller based on the novella by George R.R. Martin. This summer I got to host my very first panel at SDCC and it was with the cast! One of the folks I met was actor David Ajala, who stars as the mysterious Captain Roy Eres and is also playing Manchester Black this season on Supergirl. So check out the podcast and then later, live stream the show every day on all SYFY platforms starting 12/2/18. (I’ll be live tweeting during the show’s broadcast premiere at 10PM that day too!)

I’m back! Three bouts of laryngitis and one new job later and I am finally back with a new podcast! This week’s guest is Greg Anderson of FuseFX. Greg is the visual effects supervisor for several Marvel properties including Luke Cage (remember that punch scene in s1?), The Punisher (remember that kill Frank made from a mile away in the first episode?) Spiderman and The Black List. Currently, Greg is the highest-ranking African-American visual effects supervisor in North America. (You read that right.)

\n

So if you’ve always wanted to know how they created all those cool superhero effects, this is the podcast for you. And keep an eye out, there will be a youtube version of this interview dropping soon so you can really see what Greg’s team does every day! Don’t forget to comment and subscribe!
