Street: How were you able to get into the character of the evil Bill Cox? It's something that's quite out of the norm for your career, and I was wondering what it was like and did you ever find yourself morally repulsed because you have real kids now.
This week's "That Guy" is none other than Michael C. Maronna. Michael C. who, you ask? You may not know his name but you'll never forget his pale skin, gangly figure, fiery mane or his cracking pubescent voice as narrator of the bizarre storylines of Nickelodeon's cult favorite, The Adventures of Pete and Pete.
Since Pete and Pete's cancellation in 1996, Michael has been on the Hollywood backburner, getting suspended from high school for setting guitars on fire, studying film and re-emerging onto the Hollywood scene.
In 2002, Maronna made his first appearance on the big screen since his 1990 debut in Home Alone as Jeff, one of Kevin's (Macaulay Culkin) older siblings.
Director John Whitesell literalizes tropes of gender and racial identity confusion in his Big Momma's House 2, which meditates upon the nuanced difficulties of existing in society as an obese African-American woman, while in reality being a skinny black man.
The long stretch between winter and spring breaks is arguably the worst time of the year. The holidays are over, it's cold and dreary and few people around here brave the outdoors without a Burberry scarf and pants tucked into their Ugg boots.
David Koechner is one of those actors who is perfectly content playing "policeman number two." Though he's not usually on the screen for more than a couple of minutes, he manages to garner up a small, but well-deserved laugh.
The People's Republic of Street Film recently sat down for a conference call with the man, the myth and the legend, Fidel Castro, to talk about werewolves, dominos and his upcoming musical production Springtime for Castro. The following interview was edited for maximum happiness, equality and pro-state sentiment.
People's Republic of Street Film: Fidel, comrade, bubelah, what can we look forward to from the state-run media in the upcoming holiday season?
Cuban President Fidel Castro: Well, comrade, I have some exciting new projects coming up from the Ministry of Propaganda.
