Remember Giancarlo Esposito in Do The Right Thing?

9 March 2017 5:30 PM, PST | | See recent news »

My favorite all-time Giancarlo Esposito moment has to be in the movie Trading Places when he’s Billy Ray Valentine’s cellmate in the “quart of blood technique” scene.  But a distant second are his roles in Do The Right Thing and Breaking Bad.    For all you Breaking Bad fans, be excited because Esposito is poised to appear in Better Call Saul Season 3 as Gus Fring.  P.S. Esposito initially turned down the role.  You can read the full interview over at Vulture. But let’s get back to Esposito in Do the Right Thing.  While the journey man actor has 161 credits

16mm Double Feature Night at The Way Out Club February 7th – Trading Places and MacOn County Line

31 January 2017 6:44 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Join us for some old-school 16mm Movie Madness! – It’s our monthly 16Mm Double Feature Night at The Way Out Club (2525 Jefferson Avenue in St. Louis)! Join Tom Stockman and Roger from “Roger’s Reels’ for a double feature of two complete films projected on 16mm film. The show is Tuesday February 7th and starts at 8pm. Admission is Free though we will be setting out a jar to take donations for the National Children’s Cancer Society.

First up is Trading Places

Trading Place is a beloved fish out of water comedy from 1983. The filthy rich Duke brothers (Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) conduct a cruel experiment on two completely opposite (and completely oblivious) young men to prove that they could quite easily and successfully trade places.

Dan Aykroyd plays business executive Lewis Winthorpe III, a wealthy snob who works for the callous Duke brothers, and Eddie Murphy is Billy Ray Valentine, »
