An Interview With Adam Stein

Five years ago I began writing for blogs about pop culture comics tv and film, But they were more into the comic books and Tv Shows and conventions. These editors were young kids or very old teenagers. Anyway I was somehow befriended an actor who I interviewed for the blog and He in turn linked me with other interviews with people in the business. You need to go back 4 years in the archive to see what I mean.

At the time I wondered how far could this get me? and just I thought that, Despite several interviews this Blog Fired me, because they said my questions were offensive. I thought I was writing opinion pieces about who should make what movie or Tv Series. Because I to am a Fan.

They didn’t enjoy hypothetical questions about monsters. My question was silly yes, but It was Science gift wrapped in confection. My motives were to somehow challenge the interviewee with questions. Not to find dirt on the person. or gossip about power couples and I didn’t go head on with semantics of lore on adaptations of novels or graphic novels. I do care but I don’t care… I want to know What If? Not the secret Not your Goop or a jade egg. Lets have fun. 2020 was terrible for everyone. and I wanna know if We’re all gonna make it? so Enough about me

I just found my interview with Film Maker Adam Stein. Four years later in fact. After posting it today I will apologize to him profusely. and hopefully I will somehow feel vindicated. After all I was fired. Peerhaps my feeble attempt of being Gonzo. but that is a stretch. perhaps grasping. Like Ryan Renolds trying to convice everybody he’s gay playing Dead Pool. Man that was forced. Even Tiger Man knows when too gay is too gay.

Back to Adam Stein. His Credits include. Freaks which he produced and directed. in television he produced Harley Quinn, The Exorcist, Damages, Under The Dome.

Although I’m a a little rusty I brainstorm a series of questions and these are his responses. I was pleased as punch. Lets begins shall we?

The Exorcist (TV Series 2016–2018) - IMDb
Under The Dome - Full Episodes, Cast, Pictures and News - CBS.com

1 What Novel changed your life if possible and your favorite author?

David Foster Wallace’s “Infinite Jest.” I can’t say I understood it all, but I spent a whole lotta time with it and in really opened my eyes as to what the authorial imagination can accomplish.

 2 Is Wonder woman Sexy to you specifically Lynda Carter and why?

Wonder Woman: yes. Lynda Carter: not really. Why? I don’t know. The fact that she could destroy me?

3 You are a super hero, what is your name and power and costume.  And who is your Arch Enemy?

I am The Bloodhound, and my power is to sniff out crime, and my costume has an elongated proboscis made of vulcanized rubber. My Arch Enemy is the Flatulator, for obvious reasons. 

4 what is your preference? Cosplay or LARPING?

LARPING has something to do with role-playing, doesn’t it? I’ll go with LARPING.

5 can you name a trendy drink named after a Super Hero?

Do you mean “can I come up with a trendy drink named after a Super Hero?” Or “do I know of a trendy drink named after a Super Hero?” In either case, the answer is “no.” (But fine, how about the Hulk Smash? It’s like a Whiskey Smash but with limes instead of lemons.)

6 Who is your favorite Villain?

Dr. Evil.

7 Are Vampires ruined not scary or played out?

I’m sure there are ways to still make vampires interesting, despite their over-exposure of late.

8 Could we Co-exist with Vampires in a True Blood scenario with a Three’s Company Twist and your Landlords are Vampires?

Of course we could. Is rent paid in blood?

9 Are you high on V right now? 

If “V” means “volcano ash,” then yes. I snort that shit all the time. If it’s something else, then maybe.

10 Stephen Hawking has warned everyone not to interact with aliens if you suddenly meet one. But if you did would you talk to him. And what would you talk to him about?

Of course I’d talk to the alien. Because I’m polite. I’d ask him how his trip was. Duh.

11 Do you believe in Life on other worlds? 

I think there’s gotta be, right? In the absence of God, it’d be pretty self-important to believe there wasn’t.

12 Did you cry when E.T. Died?

Nah. I was happy for E.T. He got to go home. And I’m not much of a movie-cryer.

13 Roger Moore or Sean Connery?

If we’re talking James Bond, Connery. If we’re talking Cannonball Run, Moore.

14 Does Working for Rotor Rooter Qualify anyone to be an expert on The Paranormal?

I do not understand this question.

15 Do you fear a Zombie reality?

No.

16 If your Significant other were a zombie would you let them eat you?

I would never date a zombie.

17 if someone you knew and cared about and they were made out of chocolate would you eat them?

No. But I might lick them.

18 If there was an election now between Emperor Kang Vs Emperor Kodos who would you vote for?

I am unfamiliar with either Emperor. I would need to see them debate before making a considered decision.

19 who would win in a fight Sawyer from Lost or Daryl Dixon from Walking Dead?

Josh Holloway has the height and reach advantage, so I’m going with Sawyer.

20 Same Question but The original Ricardo Montalban, Wrath of Kahn vs Benedict Cumberbatch in the Star Trek Reboot?

Cumberbatch in a walk.

21 OK True or False There is only one Bat Man, Adam West?

Absolutely false.

22 OK Big Foot is now discovered he’s booked on your talk show. But everything he says is Outdated, Racist, sexist, and Homophobic… but he’s Big Foot how would you handle this situation.

If my talk show is on the Fox News Channel — which I assume it is — everything’s fine. I make Bigfoot permanent co-host.

What Song gets stuck in your head when you least expect it?

That fucking awful Train song, “Drops of Jupiter.”

23 What super hero would you like to portray?

I think I’d’ve made a pretty good Magneto.

24. Big Foot, Chuck Norris and Danny Trejo are in a room. A brawl breaks out. Who is the last man standing when it’s over?

Well, it’s not Bigfoot, because Bigfoot’s not a man. Between Norris and Trejo, I’m going with Trejo.

25 Ok you find yourself in a bar with Scrappy Snoopy, Scooby and Droopy until a conversation break out into a Brawl over which one of the Golden Girls they’d like to knock boots with. Who is the last Dog Standing, and name the Golden Girl that is most Golden?   

I think Droopy’s neurasthenic demeanor is actually covering up a lot of rage. So I pick Droopy. I don’t know the names of the Golden Girls, because I’m not a gay man in his 60s, but I’ll pick…the old one.

26 Final question you can refuse to answer for noble reasons. God gave you permission to kill only one person.

Trump. C’mon.

27 F*ck Marry Kill. Ginger, Maryanne, or Mrs Howell played by Helen Mirren?

Fuck Ginger, marry Mrs. Howell-Mirren, kill Maryann.

28. What project are you most proud of and what should we expect from Adam in the future?

I guess I’m most proud of having written for the first three seasons of “Damages.” That was a good show. In the future, I hope you can expect a series I’ve created to be on a network or SVOD service near you!

29. Chrissy, Janet or Mrs. Roper Down stairs, waiting for you. Mr. Roper is fixing the muffler in his car. Today is your lucky day… Decisions…. Decisions     

Mrs. Roper. She’s got experience.
