Episode 45, ‘There’s no Iron Man for Jodie Foster’, on Jodie Foster
This week, follow along with the hard to identify noises of construction happening as if it were just down the street from you. Wonder if you’re going crazy or if there is a rhythmic metal thumping (?) of some sort that is almost impossible to pinpoint, but is definitely in the background of Steve’s audio. Also: Dave and Steve talk about Jodie Foster.
- Intro Clip: Elysium.
- Steven talks about his struggles as a child actor.
- Anna and the King of Siam > The King and I > Anna and the King
- Dave fantasizes about being Jodie Foster, presumably in some sort of Being John Malkovich way.
- Dave suggests they avoid talking about Elysium, because it’s a rabbit hole nobody wants to go down.
- Dave talks about Elysium.
- Is Steve ever going to stop complaining about child actors and the Oscars?
- Dave’s tendency towards hyperbole puts the episode on a strange path.
- Dave and Steve don’t talk about The Accused — which is odd, because Foster won an Academy Award for it.
- Not once do Dave or Steve address Sir Anthony Hopkins by his title.
- Jodie Foster isn’t Julia Roberts.
- Steven would not be able to identify Jodie Foster solely based on smell.
- Sorry Bruce Willis.
- Hey Steven, go listen to the pronunciation of “ogle” and then come back to the podcast without that high horse of yours.
- Dave suggests that “unquestionably the greatest actor of his generation” could be easily replaced.
- Interstellar is the pinnacle of cinema. It’s all downhill from there, folks.
- Dave claims that something will be in the shownotes. It is not.
- Steve tries to make a Beastie Boys reference. It goes nowhere.
- Dave does an impression of a Jodie Foster zealot.
- Jodie Foster is the shining star that rises all boats.
- Something Anthony Hopkins and Anne Hathaway have in common: they both have received Oscars for only 15 minutes of screentime.
- Does anyone remember the role Foster played in District 9?
