BEHIND THE LENS #289: Featuring Gene Pope and Roxi Pope
Behind The Lens
It's all about family, friendship, and forgiveness on this episode of #BTLRadioShow thanks to our very special guests GENE POPE and ROXI POPE, and our prerecorded exclusive interview with RANDALL BATINKOFF.First up, it's all about THE LAST CHAMPION thanks to RANDALL BATINKOFF who goes in-depth about the film, his character "Bobby Baker", and how his real-life 30+ year friendship with Cole Hauser impacted this role and his performance. Directed by Glenn Withrow and written by Glenn, wife Hallie Todd, and daughter Ivy Winthrow, THE LAST CHAMPION stars Cole Hauser, Sean Scully, Randall Batinkoff, Hallie Todd, and Peter Onorati in this story about a former small-town hero and his fall from grace and the power of friendship and forgiveness. A "must listen" conversation about this "Must See" film! And as an added bonus, how about another "Must See" film starring Randall? Randall also talks about his other film that is also out now, ANGIE: LOST GIRLS, an important and powerful film about human trafficking from director Julia Vardin.And then listen to a real-life family affair with actor/writer/producer GENE POPE and his daughter, actor ROXI POPE, who are live talking about KING OF KNIVES. A blistering "crap-happy" comedy about a family in a mid-life crisis, as funny as the film is, there is also undeniable and inescapable truth and heart, most of which comes from this father and daughter duo who take their real-life roles onto the screen. Take a listen as Gene talks about the genesis of the film and its lengthy development, crafting his character of Frank, casting – including multiple auditions for Roxi for the role of Frank's daughter (no nepotism in this film!), bringing on director Jon Delgado and the collaboration that brings this story to life, finding the balance of humor and heart, and just the pure joy of hearing the real-life chemistry between Gene and Roxi will not only have you laughing, but wondering how anyone else could have even been considered for the role of Kaitlin. It's a fun and enlightening conversation with Gene and Roxi.http://eliasentertainmentnetwork.com
