Let’s begin with this fact: Mythic Quest is at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Citizen Kane is at 99%.
We could talk to Rob every week. In fact, it feels like we have done just that recently. But every conversation is very different; we always new things to discuss, new stories to tell. (are we, like, best friends?)
The focus of today’s interview was to promote the CORA for Kids Golf Outing coming up on May 24th. Every year when we talk about how important this fundraiser is to the organization, we discuss how CORA doesn’t just give back to the community, they give everything to the community. Then Rob shared a story that put it in to perspective: it was about his dad working at CORA, now, as an adult, gives him goosebumps. But, as an 8 year old he couldn’t understand why he couldn’t have Jordans. Listen to the podcast and you’ll get goosebumps too.
Then, Rob pivoted that goodwill to share an important message to aspiring filmmakers. He clearly stated that if you ever had dreams of getting into the TV/movie industry, now is the time. Stop what you’re doing, go to Hollywood or New York and sell it. There are so many opportunities. There has never been a better time to get into our business than right now.
Listen to the man who has a 100% on the TomatoMeter. Although we learned that this latest project could have goes very differently. After a slight pause, Rob blurts out, “I can say this publicly, because, who cares…. We made an offer to Robert Downey Jr. to play Ian.” Obviously he did not take the roll. And neither did Will Farrell. “I’m going to be honest,” Rob who ended up filling the roll of Ian on Mythic Quest stated, “the show would have been better if Robert or Will was playing Ian, but guess what? They’re not.”
One last question: Now that Ted Lasso and Mythic Quest exist in the same Apple universe, maybe Wrexham could play AFC Richmond this season? There are some things in the works we’re told.
