It’s All Relative for TV Legend Leah Remini

From guest spots on shows like Cheers, Friends and Saved by the Bell, to her most famous role of Carrie Heffernan on The King of Queens, Leah Remini has been a television staple for over two decades. Leah’s latest project is Leah Remini: It’s All Relative, a reality show on TLC that follows her as she juggles her career and her family life. Leah spoke with DIRECTV about the series, what else she likes to watch on TLC and her favorite memory of her former King co-star Kevin James.

What side of you do you hope the public sees that they may not have see before with your new show, Leah Remini: It’s All Relative?

What I know is; people will come away from this show smiling. Not unlike Carrie from King Of Queens or the characters I have played over the years, people will identify with someone or some scenario in this show.

People will see the “normal” side of me as opposed to what I do. You will see my family is just like yours -in inappropriate way. My mom reminds me of Jerry Stiller.

If you had to compare your family to a classic sitcom family which family would come closest?

The King Of Queens.

TLC is such a fun brand! What shows do you enjoy watching on the network?

I love Long Island Medium.

What’s your favorite memory of your King of Queens co-star Kevin James?

Kevin used to imitate a Polar Bear “mauling” me. I know that doesn’t sound funny and if you were ever mauled by a polar bear, I am sorry. But he would pick me up and make “bear sounds” and swing me around like a rag doll. And because Kevin is so strong, I truly had no control over my body and the fact that it made me laugh to a point where I was crying.  To this day still makes me laugh.

Kevin’s laugh makes me laugh, Just recently, I surprised him in Vegas where he is shooting Paul Blart and we laughed for 5 hours.

You have guest starred on such classic shows as Cheers and Friends. Have any of those experiences stuck with you throughout your career?

Of course, Cheers was a major get for me. I was so star struck when I went to set, but the cast was lovely and had no egos. Ted Danson asked me to run lines with him and I was so nervous, I didn’t answer at first. But it was definitely one of those fan moments where I went on set and said “Oh, my God-there’s Woody — There’s Carla — There’s Sam”.

Friends, I did Friends at the height of their success and again, couldn’t have been nicer. I have been on a lot of sets and they were the nicest people.

What would you like viewers to take away from your show?

That it may seem like you are the only one with issues, but you are not alone. Just watch this show! 🙂

Leah Remini: It’s All Relative premieres Thursday, July 10 at 10/9c on TLC.

Wil Wheaton

Wil Wheaton on the Next Generation of Comedy, Wearable Technology—and Beer

July 1, 2014 

Wil Wheaton (@wilw) has been a television staple for well over two decades. From his iconic turn as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation to his self-parodying guest appearances on The Big Bang Theory, we’ve seen Wil grow up while also gaining an infinite supply of geek cred. Wil’s latest show,The Wil Wheaton Project on Syfy (@Syfy) presents viewers with his take on the hottest topics in sci-fi, pop culture, and video games. Wil spoke with DIRECTV about the series, his strong dislike for wearable tech, and whether or not he was able to impress a certain starship captain.

We’re loving The Wil Wheaton Project on Syfy. It’s geek-friendly but pretty much anybody will laugh throughout every episode. Our first question is, where did you get that swank skull-and-crossbones tie you wore on the first episode?

I crashed a punk rock funeral and took it off the corpse. Some of the mourners considered stopping me, but they were conflicted, because it was such a punk rock thing to do. I used their hesitation to my advantage, so now I have a sweet tie.

In preparing for this interview we watched an old Star Trek: The Next Generation interview where you said you really wanted to impress Patrick Stewart. Did you ever achieve this? Because that would be awesome.

Yeah. A few years ago, I told him that I always regretted not being closer to the adults in the cast because I was a kid when we were working together. He embraced me and told me that he never thought of me as a kid. He said that he always thought of me as a peer, and enjoyed working with me.

How do you feel about wearable technology, at least in its current form?

I find it pretty obnoxious.

Do you think Google Glass users will overcome their less than stellar reputation?

I hope not. I would like Google Glass to die and never come back.

One of the strange things about geek culture is that it has a mixed approach to gender equality. Women seem to be accepted in comics and cosplay but female gamers are often marginalized. How many games of Titanfall have to be dominated by women before this changes?

It’s not about how well a woman plays in a game. It’s about men (and video game publishers) accepting the reality that women play video games.

In 2013, you created your own beer, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout, with a staggering 13% ABV. When are we getting w00tstout 2.0, and what’s changing? Will we be able to pair it with pizza? Please?

W00tstout 2.0 will be released at Hop-Con, the week of San Diego Comic-Con. It’s very similar to last year’s release with a little more chocolate and a lot more barrel aging. You can drink it with pizza but don’t be surprised if you rapidly lose interest in the pizza.

The Wil Wheaton Project airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Syfy (Ch. 244). Starting July 22, catch the show at 10/9c.

Drunk History back for a Second Season

A breakaway hit for Comedy Central, Drunk History presents a liquored-up view of our nation’s history—complete with a surprising and ever-changing cast. In an email interview, host Derek Waters discussed the origin of the show and gave us a glimpse into what’s to come in season two.

What inspired you to create Drunk History?

I was with one of my best pals in the world, (New Girl star) Jake Johnson, who was telling me a story about Otis Redding, who knew he was gonna die on the plane that he was on that crashed. [Jake] was so passionate about it, and I thought it would be funny to see Otis react to this. But I thought [of a premise]: everyone gets drunk and talks about history. What’s something people don’t talk about when they get drunk? History, or anything of importance. And I wanted to use the same joke. I like frustrated passion.

What historical events can we look forward to getting the Drunk History treatment this season?

Lots of race themes and finally some themed episodes including American music. [I felt that] this was the time [to] have an episode where someone gets drunk and talks about music.

Who is your dream guest star for the show?

Eddie Vedder or Dustin Hoffman. If he was still alive, Chris Farley would have been my dream come true.

Which comedians do you respect most?

Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Norm Macdonald, Christopher Guest, Stephen Merchant, Danny McBride—I have lots.

What TV shows would we find on your DVR?

Dateline, COPS, and Kroll Show. Some others but I don’t wanna give too much of myself away.  🙂

Season two of Drunk History premieres Tuesday, July 1 at 10/9c on Comedy Central (Ch. 249).
