Podcast: Sleepy Hollow (The Movie)

 

 

Tom has once again returned to "Podcast Like It's 1999" -- this time to chat with Phil and Kenny about none other than beloved Tim Burton movie, Sleepy Hollow. It was a great discussion about the movie and Tim Burton's oeuvre, with some Sleepy Hollow TV behind the scenes tidbits thrown in for good measure. You can listen to the podcast wherever you normally get your podcasts, but you can also see video of the episode by subscribing to the Podcast Like It's patreon. Always worth the few dollars to see Tom's reactions (and his SEE beard).

**Spoiler Warning -- stop reading now if you haven't seen last week's episode of See (and what are you waiting for -- go watch it!)**

 

Last week's episode saw Lord Harlan in a precarious position. After bravely trying to protect wife Maghra from the assassins, he was wounded, but still alive. The finale will be released Friday and, considering the epic battle that will no doubt be fought, we may not find out how Harlan fared. Baba Voss and brother Edo are going to have it out once and for all, but there's no telling what kind of cliffhanger they might leave us with. The show is already renewed for a third season, so it wouldn't be surprising if us viewers are left with some unanswered questions.

See is available for streaming on Apple TV+.

Podcast: Talking about Acting

 

 

You would’ve thought Tom's appearance on Podcast Like It's 1999 (available on October 29th wherever you get your podcasts) was where we’d hear Tom next, but you’d be wrong! He popped up on a Slate podcast that is all about different jobs in the arts. Hearing (or reading - there’s an imperfect transcript available through the link) Tom chat about finding characters and his love of theatre in offbeat places (and beard philosophy!), is absolutely wonderful. He goes more in depth to finding all the nuances for the clones in Watchmen, touches on Sleepy Hollow, and talks more about stepping into season 2 of See and playing a blind character. There is also some bonus content with a paid subscription, but you can read that part in the transcription if you'd prefer not to sign up.

See: Interview with Schön Magazine

 

 

Schön Magazine has published an interview with Tom and my goodness it has some spectacular photos, taken by Claudine Balthazar (with grooming by Elena Pacienza and styling by Corey Ng). The interview itself is no slouch either. Any time you can get him talking about imagination and creativity, it's going to be a treat.

What draws you to such deeply imaginative stories? 

I suspect for the same reason audiences are drawn to them. For so many of us, we’re told from a young age to grow up. But what does that actually mean? Typically it means stop playing about — which typically means stop being imaginative. But why?! It doesn’t matter who you are or what job you do; everything benefits from your ability to use your imagination. Dreaming and playing makes everyone happier, more productive, and more empathetic.

 

 

The full interview is available here. Shooting for season 3 of See should be finishing up this month, so Tom can get back home and cook that nice meal for his wife. Until then, we can think about what unexpected direction his character Lord Harlan is going to be taking -- with this show and it's very vivid imagination, it could be anything.

See can be streamed on Apple TV+. New episodes are available on Fridays, with only 2 more episode left this season.
