The newest offering from Johnny Dynamo producer Joe Thomas is another YouTube series, this one about a talk show radio station titled Mr. Frost. Described as a cutting edge comedy, the show follows the fortunes of Nashville station WLBD which is stuck at the bottom of the local ratings and their star host goes missing. Station owner Gary Brubaker, played by Brian Feys, fires the missing presenter and calls in a favor from an old pal to come and save the day and, hopefully, the station’s ratings.
The Guardian Liberty Voice had the chance to speak with one of the Johnny Dynamo star’s Jonathan Everett in an exclusive interview where Jonathan talked to us about working on the series. Everett spoke about what it was like to work with series creator Joe Thomas (The Accidental President, The Body Sculptor), Tiny Lister, Terry Kiser and his some of his other projects as well as the Johnny Dynamo webisode. This “new” web series has proven to be very popular with Variety putting the show on its list of the Top 10 Web Series of 2013.
Tommy “Tiny” Lister took time out of his very busy schedule to speak to the Guardian Liberty Voice in an exclusive interview that covered season two of Johnny Dynamo, working with Joe Thomas and Terry Kiser, acting, The Fifth Element , being a role model and of course, “You have 20 seconds.” The 56 year old former basketball player, professional wrestler and actor has 183 credits under his belt and has played some very intimidating characters on celluloid. At 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighing in at approximately 300 pounds, producers and directors would not want to hire Tiny to play a shrinking violet type.
For anyone who loves the Web Series Johnny Dynamo, created by Dennis Mareno and Joe Thomas, the news that season two of this off-beat look at a washed-up action television star is starting on September 14 will be cause for celebration. Starring newcomer Rick Wells (The Accidental President, The Good Book) as Robert Pierce Mitchell, aka RPM, aka Johnny Dynamo, the series follows the change of fortune of a star who fell from grace after a publicity stunt went wrong.
Most people recognise Terry Kiser from his 1989 portrayal of Bernie Lomax the dead boss in the comedy Weekend at Bernies but now the actor is working on season two of the webseries Johnny Dynamo and he agreed to have a chat with the Guardian Liberty Voice about his recent work and much, much more. On September 5, 2014 the 75 year-old performer took time out of his busy schedule, he was in the middle of costume fittings for another production, to speak with the paper.
