Welcome to The Kurt Locker. Each week, we’ll step through the films of Kurt Russell, starting with his early work in live-action Disney films and moving all the way to present day. Kurt Russell is the kind of actor that can, and has done it all. Whether you know him as a cowboy, the coach who can deliver one hell of a motivational speech, a psychopath race-car driver, a regular guy, an ex-soldier who you thought was dead, or even Santa Claus himself, Kurt has proven himself as a powerhouse actor for over 5 decades. To really take in the full breadth of his work, we’re watching and reviewing each feature film he’s starred in and bringing some great guests along for the ride including many well-regarded writers and critics. Subscribe now wherever you get your podcasts, episodes coming this winter.
