#199: Be Kind Rewind / Definitely, Maybe / Fanny and Alexander / Top 5 Actors We Wouldn't Cast
This week, when they're walkin' down the street (yeah), and they see a little ghost (what), what are Matty and Adam gonna say about "Be Kind Rewind," Michel Gondry's latest comedy starring Mos Def and Jack Black? Matty also finally convinced Adam to take his wife to a romantic comedy and the boys will relive the Kempenaars' experience with Ryan Reynolds, Isla Fisher and Abigail Breslin in "Definitely, Maybe." Plus, Kevin Spacey joins us to count down the Top 5 Actors We Wouldn't Cast In Our Movie. (OK, no he doesn't, but does he make an appearance on the lists?)
Also on the show: Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and the Ingmar Bergman Marathon draws to a close with a review of 1982's "Fanny and Alexander."
Music by Mark Pickerel and His Praying Hands from the new album "Cody's Dream" (available March 4) courtesy of Bloodshot Records.

- Check out clips from "George A. Romeros' Diary of the Dead" here.
- Matty busted me last week on Mercedes Ruehl, so I've got to call him out on the pronunciation of gymnast Nadia Comaneci. I've always heard it/said it "Coe-muh-NEECH," which Nadia apparently has said is correct. According to an article I found online, however, she did clarify further: "Actually, it's Coe-muh-NECH. A short 'e.' I went halfway between Romanian and yours." I know, what a relief this has been settled.
- This week's Top 5 is a response of sorts to Filmspotting 166's Top 5 Actors We WOULD Cast In Our Movie.
- The exact quote attributed to Harrison Ford when making "Star Wars" is: "You sure can type this sh**, George, but you can't say it."
