Once again we are honored to have an incredible chat with a legendary actor, fantastic improviser, and known to many as the “movie dad.” The great Paul Dooley of stage and screen joins Randy & Jason today to officially become a citizen of Sklarbro Country! Paul tells us about Don Knotts helping him get his first local TV gig in New York, eventually becoming the spokesperson for Fab detergent, and how he landed a spot on The Tonight Show with Jack Paar with an unfinished bit. He also talks about how Robert Altman casted him to be a part of A Wedding, re-writing a scene in Sixteen Candles on the day of shooting, and his love of his character’s arch in Breaking Away. And if that’s not enough, we catch up with Mark Wahlberg as his new film Pain & Gain hits theaters. It’s an episode you won’t want to miss!

Sklarbrohams: I was thrilled to hear one of my favorite bands open up this week's show, however the song is Twisterella, performed by shoegaze legends Ride.

ok....so i saw the horse punch video. It wasn't even that bad. He missed the horse with the first punch. Then the guy placed his left arm on the horse so he could leverage him self to throw a violent punch, but before he could a cop tackled him. You guys are such babies.

The movie they were talking about is called "Zoo." It is as good as a movie about zoo-aphelia can be.

This was such an interesting and insightful interview with Paul Dooley. What an honor it must have been to talk to someone that has so much history. He seemed humble yet willing to share his history. I loved this episode so much!

I found Paul Dooley to be charming as hell. How could you not?

Great episode, Paul seems really cool. Always loved him in Curb and had no idea that he was so prolific.
