Chris Grosso Talking With NPR’s Colin McEnroe

October 25, 2019

Nose 1

This week, The Washington Post published “The 20 defining comedy sketches of the past 20 years” covering television sketch comedy of the 2000s. It includes a lot of what you’d expect it to include: SNL‘s “More Cowbell” and “Black Jeopardy with Tom Hanks,” Inside Amy Schumer‘s “Last F—able Day,” Chappelle’s Show‘s “Frontline — Clayton Bigsby.”

And: For only the second time ever, The Nose has read a book. This time it’s Stephen King’s latest, The Institute. It’s a kind of science fiction horror thriller with kids in it that harkens back to a lot of classic King.

Close To Your Heart – An Interview With Ken Foree (2019)

October 18, 2019

Ken Booth

Ken Foree is an incredibly versatile American actor widely known for his role as Peter Washington in George Romero’s 1978 film Dawn of the Dead as well as Roger Rockmore on the Nickelodeon’s Kenan & Kel (amongst countless other well-known movies and television series).

In this conversation Ken and I discuss him working with Keith David in the recent documentary, Horror Noire, Ken’s friendship with Duane Jones (who played “Ben” in the seminal film, Night of the Living Dead), his role as Peter Washington in Dawn of the Dead, working with George Romero, working with Rob Zombie and playing “Big Joe Grizzly,” doing yoga with his mother, awe-inspiring life moments, frightening life moments, what inspires him in life, and much more.

The following interview was conducted on the morning of 10/11/19 at the Hilton Hotel in Worcester, MA prior to Ken’s appearance at the Rock & Shock Horror Convention.
