The summer wind’s been blowin’ in and they TOOK MY THUMB! On Episode 6 of ERITFM we are joined by the stupendous Leslie Moore to talk about one of the goofiest – and very best – Eric Roberts performances in 1984’s THE POPE OF GREENWICH VILLAGE, as well as his blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part in 1996’s dark comedy THE CABLE GUY. Sacred cows are slaughtered left and right, and we pitch the idea of a great Eric Roberts-themed prank show. It’ll be the talk around the water-cooler all week so DON’T MISS OUT!
Check out much more of Leslie’s work over at http://popshifter.com/, as well as her writing on Hannibal and many other topics at Rue Morgue, Everything is Scary and modernhorrors.com. And, of course, check her out on Twitter @popshifter.

Yes. Dad.
We also discuss the FAST AND THE FURIOUS meets PAINTBALL action-sports-drama #SPEEDBALL, which may or may not ever actually get made. Don’t take MY word for it, though. Here’s the director describing it:
And last, but not least, Martin Kove revealed an upcoming screening of the supernatural-western SIX GUN SAVIOR featuring Eric Roberts as THE DEVIL.
