A Christmas Story: Annual Celebration
On December 9, Movie Addict Headquarters revisits A Christmas Story, one of filmdom’s favorite family comedies. In one of our most popular episodes, actors Zack Ward and Julie Matthews from the film’s original cast share their reactions about being involved in this great holiday classic. Mad Movie Man A.J. Hakari also joins in the celebration.
Back in 1983, Zack Ward portrayed Scut Farkus -- the scary red-haired bully -- in A Christmas Story. Since then, he has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows. Among Zack’s films are Transformers, Almost Famous and Resident Evil: Apocalypse. His television credits include work on such series as Deadwood, Dollhouse, Crossing Jordan, Cold Case, CSI, NCIS and Titus.
Julie Matthews, one of the carolers in A Christmas Story, also helped with the film’s casting. During the past 20 years, she has achieved success as a character actress, vocalist and model. Her impressive show biz background includes work as an agent, casting director, talent scout, producer, TV director, acting coach, publicist and writer. In addition to A Christmas Story, Julie has appeared on-screen in such movies as Major League and Bob Roberts. She is also co-founder and director of the American Performing Arts Network.
The Mad Movie Man (aka A.J. Hakari), a frequent guest on Movie Addict Headquarters, writes film reviews for ReelTalk Movie Reviews, Classic Movie Guide, Review Express, and his own movie blog CineSlice.
This special tribute show airs on BlogTalkRadio at 4 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. An archived segment will also be available.
