DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis connects via Zoom with actor Sam Pancake to discuss his show Pancakes from the Edge, which is loosely inspired by his obsession with the film Postcards From the Edge. He talks about meeting Shirley MacLaine and watching her rip into Richard Dreyfus for being late to reading. He also talks about his recent mainstream Hollywood projects like A Million Little Things, The Goldbergs and the upcoming Chris Pine film Poolman. He also tells the story of how he asked Chris Pine to come and play Burt Reynolds for one night in The Golden Girlz...and Chris said yes!  He also talks about how much the landscape has changed for out actors and shares a few stories from times weren't so great. Other topics include: crushing on Brad Garrett, being competive, playing Password Lucy in the MisMatch Game, teen hookers in TV movies and people who want to have sex with him when he's dressed as Sophia Petrillo in the Golden Girlz.
