Show Notes

Jason Kimble left the tornadoes of Michigan for the hurricanes of Florida, because spinning air is better when it’s warm. He lives there with his finally-legal husband. His most recent work appears or is forthcoming in Betwixt, The Sockdolager, Clockwork Phoenix 5, and Escape Pod. You can find more of his nattering at this website, Process Wonk, or on Twitter.

 

 

 

 

The very first story Paul Cram ever narrated was here at Cast of Wonders, and he seems to have been bit by the bug. Paul’s a character actor who casting directors say looks like a cross between Gollum and James Dean. Which may sound like an unusual blend, but it’s working for him, as Paul’s getting cast in such films as Fox Searchlight’s comedy WILSON starring Woody Harrelson & Laura Dern. In the film, Paul plays a few scenes as Harrelson’s kind & gentle cell-mate; the movie is is based on a graphic novel written by Daniel Clowes. You can find the film in theaters now or stream online in months to come.

When not on a movie set or audition, Paul can be found deep-frying chicken wings & cream cheese wontons with his older sister, or arguing about pop culture with his brother Zay around one of the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota. You can find Paul online and on Twitter.

Paul’s interview with Jason is available here.
