Ep 26 - Adam Pascal: "Shout Out to Greenblatt's Deli"

Ep 26 - Adam Pascal: "Shout Out to Greenblatt's Deli"
We are back!!! Season Two, bitches! Here we go! We are starting season two with someone I have been a fan of since I was in 5th grade! The iconic Adam Pascal! We all know Adam for his Tony nominated performance as Roger in the original cast of RENT, and the fact that he reprised that roll in the blockbuster movie adaptation, but did you know that Adam Pascal made a guest appearance on the cult webseries "Submissions Only" singing a song called "We Should F*** Other People". We loved Adam in the movie School of Rock, and of course we know him for originating the roll of Radames in the Broadway smash AIDA, but did you know that Aida didn't even get a nomination for Best Musical??? Did you know that Adam Pascal could eat a bagel with tuna every day of his life and be totally happy doing so??? I bet you didn't know that he never even intended to become a musical theatre performer before landing the roll of Roger in Rent, or that he has a very special upcoming streamed concert event called ADAM PASCAL SO FAR... start August 17th, 2021! Well we discuss all of this and a whole lot more on this episode of Now We're Talking! Make sure to follow Adam on his socials @adampascal for more details, and as always follow me and this podcast on twitter and instagram @drewgasparini or @NWT_Pod.

Ep 24 - Andrew Barth Feldman: "You Can Find Love at 'Scoundrels'"
Andrew Barth Feldman is an absolute gentleman! This was one of my favorite conversations of 2021 so far, and I’m honored the man himself sat down with me to talk about everything and anything. Of course we know that this Jimmy Award winner went on to make a splash as the title role in Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen, but did you know that he has always dreamed of opening a Tiki Bar and restaurant in his apartment! We are thrilled to see his success span toward TV as Antoine in the Disney Plus series, High School Musical: The Series: The Musical, but did you know that he has theorized that Les Mis’s Javert is likely a “Lincoln Project” republican! Mark my words, this young man is the next generation’s Tom Hanks. He’s so charming, likable and talented that he’s going to be a household name in no time, and I’m excited to see that happen. We talk about his rise to stardom, his family background, his love for theme restaurants, and we even play a game of “Silly Questions” and “Most Impossible Questions”. Tune in and turn it up, because now we’re talking with Mr. Andrew Barth Feldman! You can keep tabs on Andrew's upcoming life moments by following him on his socials @andrewbfeldman.

Ep 22 - Emma Hunton: "My Entire Life is Based off the Decision of a Six Year Old"
Emma Hunton is a class act. She currently plays Davia Moss on GOOD TROUBLE, now in its third season. But you know that! I bet you didn’t know that she once had access to LORD OF THE RINGS porn parody! Before her work in TV we all knew Emma from her career on stage as Elphaba in Wicked and Ilsa in Spring Awakening on Broadway, but did you know that if it came down to it, she’d kick Tomi Loren’s small minded ass!? I bet you know of her work on tour as Natalie in Next to Normal or from her performance in The Mad Ones, but I bet none of y’all knew that Emma and I actually dated over eleven years ago! In fact one of my most popular songs is written about her! Learn about that and all things Emma in this week’s episode! We talk about Emma’s non-stop career in show business since the age of 6, we talk about her hate for mansplainers. We talk about why I insist on continuing to try to start unnecessary beef with Broadway’s beloved Jonathan Groff. From household chores, to hangover cures, we discuss it all! What a joy it was to sit with my good friend Emma Hunton. Tune in, and subscribe! Find Emma Hunton on twitter instagram and TikTok @EmmaHunton, and don’t miss her on season 3 of FreeForm’s GOOD TROUBLE!
