Terry Fator, the ventriloquist extraordinaire and season 2 winner of America’s Got Talent, is even more excited than usual these days — this time about the release of his new DVD. "This thing was many, many years in the making and the first DVD, I was pressured to making I didn'.t feel like I was quite ready," Fator told Uinterview exclusively answering fan questions collected in Uinterview's Facebook app. “It’s got tons of great impressions, tons of great comedy, and I’ve never been more proud of anything in my entire life.”
Fator gained notoriety for the first time after wowing the audience with his puppet Winston's tuneful performance Etta James’ classic "At Last" on Agt. "All of a sudden that puppet opens its mouth and I gotta say all of the expectations were very low because they didn’t expect much from ventriloquists," he told Uinterview. "That really »
Update: The Nut Job is a Huge success, making more money in its opening weekend than any other indie animated film. So, of course, the companies behind the nutty film will make a sequel! Nothing else is secured, like if director Peter Lepeniotis or any of the stars will be back. When a movie is expected to be a success, usually they have the stars sign a contract promising to come back but with a small film made out of South Korea, I feel pretty certain they did Not make a deal for future films with the film's key voices, Katherine Heigl or Will Arnett.

Chicago – It feels like when any studio besides Walt Disney or Pixar does an animated film with celebrity voices, there is a little less lacquer on it. What the other two remember, and others forget, is that it starts with a script. All the toon landscapes in the world can’t fix a dull story.
“The Nut Job” is a case in point. It looks lovely, with well-defined characters and scenic composition – set in the “Guys and Dolls” era of caper heists. But the story lacks substance or verve, and there were stretches of dead audience silence in the preview screening. Not a good sign, because the room was populated by the target audience of kiddies. Also, the film steals gags from the Warner Brothers era of cartoons, in more of a rip-off than a tribute. All these poisonous bits add up to a long 86 minutes. That’s right, »
