Dee Wallace talks E.T. and Scream Queens, Geri Jewell talks Facts of Life and Deadwood on next Dave [Mar. 23rd, 2013|12:31 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , ]

Scream Queen Dee Wallace (E.T., The Howling) and comic actress Geri Jewell (The Facts of Life, Deadwood) headline the March 26 Dave White Presents!

Dee Wallace is best known for playing Elliott's Mom in E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial and being a "Scream Queen" in cult favorites like The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, and Rob Zombie's reworking of Halloween. So far, she's had over 130 roles in TV and movies, including work in 85 films. And she shows no sign of stopping now!

But that only scratches the surface of what this Renaissance Woman has been doing all these years! On the next DWP, Dee talks with Wes Britton about E.T., some of her other favorite movie parts, but also her books, radio shows, and the healing classes she teaches in person and online. So this is in interview that goes beyond entertainment to offer some wisdom as well!

Speaking of wisdom, comic actress Geri Jewell has quite a bit of insight to share as well! Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at an early age, Geri became the first actress with a visible disability to have a regular role on television when she became part of the cast on The Facts of Life. Discovering celebrity was both a blessing and a curse, Geri spent many years working as a stand-up comic before returning to TV as Jewell in the HBO classic, Deadwood.

We promise—you don't want to miss this one! In an extensive interview with Wes Britton, Geri talks about it all—her big break meeting Norman Lear, how she was eased out of Facts of Life, and how she shaped her own role on Deadwood. Hear how she was discovered playing "Home on the Range" on her father's organ during a funeral service, how she knocked Big Bird's head off, why Robert Goulet couldn't convince her Mom he really was Robert Goulet . . . Folks, the lady is funny!

We'll mix these in-depth conversations with two very wise women with the usual unusual predictably unpredictable humor of DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, March 26, at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over--
