Episode 19: Amazing Racer (2009) & Assault on Wall Street (2012) (/w Jon Cross)

On a VERY SPECIAL episode of Eric Roberts is the Man we welcome VERY SPECIAL guest Jon Cross from The After Movie Diner Podcast to talk about two VERY SPECIAL movies. First up is the heartwarming family horse cart racing movie(?!)  AMAZING RACER (aka SHANNON’S RAINBOW) which features Darryl Hannah, Michael Madsen, Louis Gossett Jr., TOM ATKINS, Steve Guttenberg and ERIC ROBERTS. It’s.. uh.. something else.  But that’s not all! We follow that with the inspiring modern classic ASSAULT ON WALL STREET from the gret Uwe Boll, which has Dominic Purcell killing a bunch of Wall Street fat cats because they were indirectly responsible for ruining his life. It’s like THE BIG SHORT on STEROIDS except NOT GOOD. Also, Eric Roberts is there. TUNE IN!

As always, check out ERIC ROBERTS IS THE MAN on Twitter, or come chat ER (or anything else) on our Facebook group.

A live version of the song “Murder on Wall Street” by Distant 2nd – which inspired ASSAULT ON WALL STREET – can be viewed right here:



This is exciting. Using the extraordinary technology of PERISCOPE, Andy Dick live-streamed some sort of weird.. gambling event with cars. I didn’t really understand what was going on. But what I *did* understand was an appearance from his old Less than Perfect running buddy ERIC ROBERTS!

It was a pretty great moment. Andy was bemoaning the fact that there wasn’t any other celebrities there, and then someone said YES THERE IS and then appeared ERIC ROBERTS. They conversed for a few minutes and that was it. Pretty beautiful.


Now the big Eric Roberts news of this past week was Eric appearance on the a show we’ve – oddly – never mentioned on this podcast. It’s LOST GIRL, which just started its final season with Eric Roberts’ TENTH appearance as HADES.

Lost Girl focuses on the gorgeous and charismatic Bo, a supernatural being called a succubus who feeds on the energy of humans, sometimes with fatal results. Refusing to embrace her supernatural clan system and its rigid hierarchy, Bo is a renegade who takes up the fight for the underdog while searching for the truth about her own mysterious origins.

I know nothing about this show aside from the fact that it’s Canadian, but I *do* know that eventually I’ll have to watch at LEAST ten episodes of it.


We also discussed the upcoming theatrical release of Frank D’Angelo’s feature film SICILIAN VAMPIRE. The press release about the release can be read right here:


TORONTO, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ – The news was just released that Frank D’Angelo’s feature film Sicilian Vampire will have its theatrical release in Canada and USA at the end of February, with Europe soon to follow.
