This week on The Reel Debaters Micheal sits down with actor Dean Simone to talk about playing Jim Beam, working in the theatre, how to look at film over the years with fresh eyes, working with Billy Bob Thornton, Michael Gondry, David E Kelley, world famous DP Hoyte van Hoytema and his new film Game Day.   GAME DAY is a raw, humorous, and emotionally gripping film about an Italian American family from Philadelphia who gather every Sunday to watch their beloved Eagles. But on this Sunday as each quarter of the game unfolds, arguments, fights, and bitter realizations arise within the family, exposing deep divisions and rivalries that turn child against parent, husband against wife, with grandparents and siblings battling it out until the bitter end. Who will win?   Co-written by Philadelphia native Dean Simone, GAME DAY is a story for our time about a family that fights passionately among themselves but never gives up on each other. https://www.gamedaythemovie.com/ (WATCH HERE!)   Housekeeping Have you heard about our Prop Shop?

We have the answers if you're curious... Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life Micheal Petrow and Martin Navarro with their best good friends have gone too many sleepless nights while these and more questions like them continue to go unanswered. Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle with a variety of patented and proven formats where we compare, contrast and insult each other with our takes for your listening pleasure. We’ll either insert ourselves into the movie or tv show and see how we fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios and see how they hold water and as a bonus give you access and interviews in the North American Film Industry
