Episode 54: Stunt casting

Bill Murray in Zombieland and Winona Ryder in Star Trek

Mark David Christenson returns to talk about stunt casting, the practice of casting very famous people in small roles for movies, TV, or theater. Entertainment today has gone a bit cameo crazy, but Jen and Dave contend stunt casting can have as much chance of hurting a project as it does of helping it. And let’s face it, for every time Bill Murray pops up in something uncredited, Winona Ryder’s wearing a weird space robe and sticking out like a sore thumb.
