Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski On The B-Movies Podcast
If it wasn’t for Scott Alexander and Larry Karasweski, the screenwriters of Ed Wood and the upcoming Margaret Keane biopic Big Eyes, at least one of us wouldn’t be here today. B-Movies Podcast co-host William Bibbiani was inspired to go into the entertainment industry after reading the script to Ed Wood, and now he and co-host Witney Seibold are thoroughly prepared to geek out. They’ve got Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski on the show!
This week on a very special bonus episode of The B-Movies Podcast, Bibbs and Witney are recording from the haunted (yes, really) offices of the Big Eyes screenwriters, getting the inside scoop on Tim Burton, the real life story of the Keane family, and the making of Ed Wood, Man on the Moon and That Darn Cat. And somehow they also get the behind the scenes skinny on A Nightmare on Elm Street 2. We did NOT see that one coming.
What bugged the heck out of Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski about the published script for Ed Wood? How did they get their start? How did “Twin Peaks” inspire the remake of That Darn Cat? How do they research all their biopics? Whatever happened to the Tim Burton directed, Jim Carrey starring big budget feature film based on Ripley’s Believe It Or Not? How did they unearth the mysteries of Andy Kaufman while writing Man on the Moon? What real stories about Walter and Margaret Keane were so weird, they had to cut them out of Big Eyes?
You’ll find out the answers to all of these questions and more on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski!
