Drew and Badway make the most of a slow news week with an On Demand episode revolving around two very different topics. First, the guys dive into Instagram tough guy Dwayne Johnson’s “set beef” with Vin Diesel, speculate who else on set might be worthy of the moniker “candy ass,” and who would win real life throwdowns vs The Rock himself. Later, things take a turn for the weird when the discussion turns to the greenlit live-action Disney reboot of The Little Mermaid. Everything is on the table: mermaids, mermen, fish flippers, man-fish love, casting choices, and a theoretical Aladdin live-action adaptation where William H. Macy plays the Magic Carpet. Don’t say we didn’t warn you about the weirdness!
As Drew can attest, Badway can be difficult to handle on the set of The Last Row Podcast. This week’s On Demand episode focuses on the actors and actresses who are rumored to be divas on the sets of their films. The guys discuss the shade that Irish filmmaker John Carney threw at Keira Knightley recently, and speculate on who else in Hollywood is most likely to be a jerk to their castmates and directors. Additionally, they discuss the new character tidbits The Rock leaked about his character, “Hobbs” during Fast 8 filming. Finally, Badway attempts to stump Drew in another round of Plot Fiction.
