ReelBlend #81: John Travolta Stories And The Peanut Butter Falcon Interviews

Olivia Newton John and John Travolta in Grease

Powered by RedCircle

Do you know how long John Travolta has been a professional, working actor? Some might guess 20 years, as they only remember his career resurgence that started with Pulp Fiction. Others who remember all the way back to Grease and Saturday Night Fever might guess 30 to 35 years.

Impressive, and still not even close.

Travolta has been entertaining audiences for just shy of 50 years as a professional actor, singer and dancer. His career has been staggering, and while he has been in a rut as of late, his newest film The Fanatic is an intriguing stare into the mirror of celebrity.

Travolta went on a national press tour to promote The Fanatic recently, and both Kevin McCarthy and Jake Hamilton got him. They share their stories of interviewing Travolta in this week’s ReelBlend episode.

Before they get to their Travolta stories, the ReelBlend boys tackle the news of the week, and damn, did they have some doozies. Spider-Man is leaving the MCU (for now), sending Sean into an outrage. The Matrix 4 has been confirmed, and the guys have thoughts. And the new Bond film has an official title.

Oh, and after raving about The Peanut Butter Falcon last week, Sean brings his interview with co-directors Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz to the show!

Yeah, this one is jam packed.
