Time to walk in Michael Corleone's shoes. (Yes, this is a Godfather: Part II reference.)
I'm off to Cuba to have cake with Hyman Roth, look for Johnny Ola and give Fredo a big kiss.
OK, not really.
But I AM taking a cruise to Cuba this week.
So I'll be back with a new episode next week.
In the meantime, feel free to binge old episodes RIGHT HERE.
If you didn't catch it last week, listen to my talk with JOE MANTEGNA.
And I have my fab chat with Aida Turturro re-releasing in a few days. It's a good one and it was done more than a year ago. So if you missed it, check it out. And if you didn't, enjoy it another time around.
Miss you guys and talk to you next week!

So happy to say I have another acting icon for you!
Joe Mantegna is here.
Maybe you watch Criminal Minds.
Maybe you know him from The Godfather Part 3. (OK, we may have mixed feelings about this film, but it is what it is.)
Maybe you saw him on Broadway, in Speed the Plow or Glengarry Glen Ross.
Fact: He's got serious acting cred.
Fact: He's very, VERY chill. To be honest, I felt like he wasn't really into diving deep in this interview.
But that didn't stop me from trying.

Do you watch the hilarious hidden-camera TV show The Carbonaro Effect?
If not, take my advice: Watch it! You'll love it. It's like Candid Camera, but host Michael Carbonaro is so good on his feet that he makes it even funnier.
It's light and fun and it's on TruTV - Thursday nights.
When Michael was in New York last week, I met him at the TruTV offices and we sat down for a fun chat about taping The Carbonaro Effect, cracking up (or not), getting stressed out and what his life is like now that he has a hit TV show.
This time, it's a video interview! Enjoy.
What a week!
Movies, TV series, web series, Q&As, interviews, red carpets, actors, filmmakers, legends and icons ... and what an incredible assortment!
Enjoy the ride.
You remember the final scene of The Sopranos, right?
Of course you do!
Here's where it was shot - Holsten's in Bloomfield, NJ.
And guess what?!? Michael Imperioli is my next Really Famous guest!
And after I talked to him, I thought you might want to know more about the final scene. Here's what I've got for you!
In the meantime, hear more from Michael Imperioli on Really Famous - JUST RELEASED!
I’m in a frenzy!
Need a calm-assertive influence...
Luckily Cesar Millan is here to show me the way. 🐶⭐️😎
See for yourself!
Talented TV, film & theater actor Marin Ireland talks Sneaky Pete season 2, Giovanni Ribisi & Bryan Cranston, Homeland, The Killing, RuPaul's Drag Race, Catastrophe, Crashing and what she JUST learned about free Amazon perks you never knew about.
Try this on for size.
It's just a short clip, but it'll give you a taste of how it goes.
Thanks, Kate Flannery, for being the first Really Famous guest to do part of the interview on camera!
Just making some funny faces for you...
So you're ready for THIS WEEK's episode...
With Kate Flannery!
(You may know her as Meredith on a little show called The Office.)
I sit down with iconic actress Tippi Hedren at her home in California...and we get into a variety of topics.
She tells me about being Alfred Hitchcock's muse and what happened when he crossed the line.
We review Hitchcock's movies, discuss #MeToo and #TimesUp, chat about Melanie Griffith, Antonio Banderas and Johnny Depp, and talk about injuries on the sets of The Birds and Roar, a movie filmed at Shambala, her animal sanctuary in California.
Or listen right here:
Do you remember actor Diedrich Bader on Monk? Or Psych? Or CSI?
Because it wasn't until he met Julia Louis-Dreyfus that people starting taking him seriously.
Hear the story on this week's Really Famous podcast episode #29.
He also talks about Better Things, Pamela Adlon and Louis CK.
Plus he breaks into dog voices!
PS He plays the dad on the ABC series American Housewife. You can catch it every Wednesday night.
Listen right here:
Yep, it's Ed Asner.
