Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch), Ryan Bailey (@GeekOutBailey), and Oren Kamara (@Sabra14) are back this week with the latest episode of Far, Far Away, and this time they’re joined by actor and writer extraordinaire Todd Stashwick! This week we talk about the latest rumors to come from the set of ‘Episode VIII’, who Laura Dern’s character could be, Andy Serkis’ role in the next installment, and more before then turning to talk to (and slightly interrogate) Todd about his work co-writing the newest, mystery ‘Star Wars’ video game for EA and Visceral, his experiences working on Skywalker Ranch, what he may or may not know about the new films, and more!
I first met writer-director Oliver Oertel in the ever-expanding orbit of Todd Stashwick. A fellow improv performer, Oliver is a successful reality TV producer who has recently turned his eye to documentary filmmaking. As a connoisseur of movies, TV and nerd-dom, here’s the Dancing Dad himself.
