This week on Off Off Pod is part 2 of my talk with my good buddy, actor/writer, Erik Van Wyck. In this interview Erik lets it all hang out in his assessment of Los Angeles, the good, the bad, and the ugly — why it can be intoxicating and also soul sucking to pursue the favored industry of the town.
Erik talks a bit about a movie he helped produce (and acted in) called Expecting (which you can watch now on demand) with Radha Mitchell and Michelle Monaghan.
He also talks about traveling the world as the host of the reality show Getting Abroad which was on for a season on the now defunct The Mojo Network. The show explored mating and dating rituals around the world, and basically Erik traveled to a country, and he and a local wing man went around and tried to pick up women. He started each show by sampling an (often disgusting) local aphrodisiac.
Erik also offers up some embarrassing and/or bizarre audition stories.
