Allen Hughes: HBO’s “The Defiant Ones”

Posted by on Jul 10, 2017 in Opinion, Podcast, Q & A | 0 comments

Sunday, HBO premiered Part 1 of the documentary, “The Defiant Ones,” a four-part series profiling the legendary partnership between iconic producers Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovene. Directed by Allen Hughes, it’s a fascinating look into the music industry, going back decades, and well worth a viewing. You will learn cool stuff, and gain insight into two of the most important figures in modern music history.

We spoke with Hughes ahead of the premiere, about the process of making the film, what he learned about his subjects, the culture wars of the 1990s, and much more.

Listen to the show, watch the doc.

Lonzo Ball at Last (Plus, the rest of the draft…)

Posted by on Jun 23, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Opinion, Podcast |

The Lakers made it official on Thursday, doing what everyone ultimately expected they would: Draft Lonzo Ball. We break down that pick, and the three other selections Rob Pelinka, Magic Johnson, and the new Lakers braintrust made in its first NBA Draft. What the choices mean going forward, what we learn from the D’Angelo Russell trade, and finally, another installment of the Hallmark Christmas Movie Game!

Lonzo Ball vs. ?, Golden State vs. Everyone, Jerry West vs. the Lakers

Posted by on Jun 16, 2017 in Lakers Analysis, Lakers Audio, Magic Johnson, Opinion, Podcast | 2 comments

Those are the big themes this week, with the Finals complete and the Draft a week away.

We start on the Finals, and the fallout from Golden State’s dominant win over Cleveland, despite a historic performance from LeBron James and excellent work from Kyrie Irving. They, like the rest of the league, weren’t close. So what does that mean for the NBA, and specifically rebuilding teams like the Lakers?

From there, we look at the Draft. Plenty of smoke out there indicating the Lakers could pass on Lonzo Ball for Josh Jackson. Should they? What about a trade?

Finally, The Logo is back in Los Angeles, but (at least in the minds of many Lakers fans) working for the wrong squad. How upset should Lakers fans be?

And a reminder — we’ll be hosting ESPNLA’s post-Draft coverage from the facility in El Segundo on Thursday night, starting at 7 pm and running until we’re done. Given how much could be going on that night, we could be in for a long, intriguing show! Hope you can tune in.

Brian Cox as Winston Churchill

Brian Cox as Winston Churchill

Very excited to welcome Brian Cox to the show this week. The veteran actor’s credits include Manhunter (where he played Hannibal Lecter five years before Anthony Hopkins), Rushmore, Braveheart, the first two Bourne movies, Adaptation, and a lot more. (Seriously, a lot.)

His new film is Churchill, in which Cox plays… wait for it… Winston Churchill. Specifically, Churchill just before Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of German-occupied France in June of 1944. It opens Friday.

We talk about that performance, his life in Hollywood, what makes a great director, and more. (Including some bad news for people looking to eat well on a British film set.)
