Take 15 - Show creator Mickey Fisher, Extant, Reverie

Screaming into the Hollywood Abyss

We talk to show creator Mickey Fisher. He tells us about how his 'overnight success' wasn't actually overnight, being fired in hotel rooms and having his gate pass for the studio revoked as the first sign his show was getting cancelled.He explains his version of imposter syndrome, getting fired from a role as a three-wheel motorbike ambassador and his first meeting and instant bonding with a very pregnant Halle Berry.He talks honestly about nearly quitting his dream, knowing his limitations and why he is so nice. A great chat with a Hollywood nice guy who earned success on a different path.

Death Proof with Extant creator Mickey Fisher

Scream Addicts Podcast: Horror movies | Movie reviews | Horror

It’s a special episode this week, as Jinx chats with Guest Addict and writer/producer/Extant creator Mickey Fisher about a film of his choosing – Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 Grindhouse entry Death Proof. With its slasher film aesthetic, razor sharp dialogue and insane car stunts, Death Proof proves to be a blast to talk about, even as the discussion occasionally touches on the film’s disappointing box office and critical reception. …also, we discuss what every cinematic psycho-killer must be like when they aren’t stalking and attacking nubile young teenagers. So buckle up, brave listeners!  This conversation starts out fast, quickly picks up speed, and takes a few detours before we drive it into a brick wall at 125 miles an hour (…y’know, just for the experience). As always, be sure to subscribe to our show on iTunes, leave feedback, tell your friends, and give us a yell on Twitter! We are: @ScreamAddicts @Jinx1981 @MickeyFisher73
