1:02:00 Jack’s second appearance on Kevin’s show. Wearing his Team Edward shirt!

Kevin asks Jack about his “geek credentials.” Jack owns “Fluffy” from Creepshow (www.tomspinadesigns.com).

Also owns the Battlestar Galactica main door that is used to enter the “CIC” on the show.

Jack never really read The Avengers comics. Kevin loved Thor and Captain America. He is actually surprised that Loki is the villain in the movie?

1:08:50 Kevin mentions seeing Sir Ian McKellen’s “I am Gandalf and Magneto. Get over it!” shirt. Jack thinks it is photoshop and that the shirt does not exist.

1:09:22 May 4th release date for The Avengers. The Dark Knight in June or July. Which one does better? Magical May 4th date-most desirable date of the summer. More Avengers talk-any other women in The Avengers?

1:12:20 Kevin felt like Hawkeye/Jeremy Renner was sandwiched into the Iron Man 2 movie.

Like Dustin Hoffman in the Meet the Fockers sequel, wasn’t originally in it but audiences wanted him after test screenings so they added him in. He got 7.5 million for five days work! Story: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1344386/Little-Fockers-star-Dustin-Hoffman-paid-7-5m-days-work.html

1:13:45 Iron Man. RDJ doesn’t wear the suit anymore, just CGI’d it in. Like Michael Keaton in Batman, suit changed after the first one where he could barely move his head.

1:15:00 Kevin said on TMZ that he would “go very gay for Chris Hemsworth.”

Gratuitous pic of Chris Hemsworth with his baby! Ahhhhhhhh

Jack brings up his equally hot brother Liam Hemsworth (Hunger Games). http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2955013/

1:59:42 Kevin and Jack happy they are allowed to “geek out,” unlike their dads that had to work. More freedom. Their parents didn’t rush home to watch Entertainment Tonight to see the new Batman trailer. Back in the days of Fanzines and conventions once a year. Jack wanted to buy the back issues of magazines at conventions. No more “hunt” for information.

2:06:00 Comic Book talk. Where did Kevin buy his comic books? New Jersey days. Forty five cents to buy a Star Wars comic.

2:08 Livingston Mall discussion. First mall? Comic Book store: “Heroes World.”

2:13:00 Discussion of magazines online. Stories updated online before magazine even comes out.


2:14:00 Does Jack have to like all of Bill Condon’s movies? Jack says Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters, Kinsey, Chicago (which he wrote) “would have been his favorite movies of that year whether he knew him or not.” DID hate the Candyman sequel, directed by Bill BUT NOT written by him, walked out. Told Bill that the first night he met him.

Jack and Bill

2:17:00 Only movie Kevin ever walked out of is The Flintstones. Never worked at a movie theater, Jack did 1985-88. Jack shares his Top Gun anecdote (not for the faint of heart).
