James Bond, Hawaii 5-O, Magic, and Comedy Songs on the Next Dave White Presents!

2002 was a banner year for actor Will Yung lee. For one thing, he starred as baddie Colonel Tan-Sun Moon in the 20th James Bond opus, Die Another Day. In the same year, People magazine named him one of the "50 Most Beautiful People." Five years later, People included him in their list of "The 15 Sexiest Men Alive."

Along the way, Lee has been busy on both the small and large screens. He's had roles in Witchblade, Bionic Woman, Electra, and as a recurring character on Hawaii 5-O. He'll also be the Silver Samurai in the Upcoming The Wolverine.

On Tuesday, March 12, Will will join Wes Britton to talk about his career, especially what it was like to work on the 40th anniversary 007 film and how his role as Sang Min on Hawaii 5-O was shaped. In addition, he's the star of a new DVD release called The Four Assassins and we'll go behind the scenes of that thoughtful character study.

Summing up the eight decades of magician and comedy songwriter Milt Larson's career is no easy task. As a teenager, he wrote comedy bits for Bob Barker's Truth or Consequences game show. Producer Ralph Edwards used Larson as the "distraction" for stars like Buster Keaton and Stan Laurel so they didn't know they were about to be profiled on This is Your Life.

But it was with magic where Larson earned his claim to fame, eventually earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being named one of the 100 Most Influential Individuals in Magic by Magic Magazine. Among other accomplishments, he co-founded the members only Magic Castle club which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. On top of all that, since the late '50s, Larson has written hundreds of comedy songs with Richard Sherman, half of the legendary Sherman brothers who wrote all those hits for Disney.

In one of the liveliest conversations we've ever had, Milt will tell you all about the days of vaudeville, encounters with Cary Grant and Johnny Carson, his new memoir . . . in fact, trying to tell you what he'll talk about is a bit like trying to squeeze the Titanic into a shot glass. Oh, expect a generous sampling of the Sherman-Larson comic songs as well.

All this, along with some new "predictably unpredictable" radio comedy debuts on the next Dave White Presents, Tuesday, March 12, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over--
