My first exposure to my newest interview subject, Sandy Helberg, came through the movie Spaceballs, where he memorably played the character of Dr. Schlotkin, the plastic surgeon who was going to give Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) her old nose back if King Roland (Dick Van Patten) didn’t turn over the key to the air lock. As I grew older, I came to see that Sandy Helberg was an incredible talent as both an actor and a writer. Through the help of Kim Hopkins, my dear friend and former interview subject who also connected me to Stuart Pankin, I spoke with Sandy on Monday, August 17th, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know this great talent.

Sondra Currie, whom I had the great pleasure of interviewing recently, has a career that stretches back to the 1970s. Over the years, she’s appeared in a wide variety of projects, ranging from 70s cult classics like Policewomen and Mama’s Dirty Girls to guest roles on shows like Three’s Company and The Golden Girls in the 80s and Murder, She Wrote in the 90s, to playing Linda, the mother of Alan (Zach Galifnakis) in the Hangover trilogy. This is in addition to a lengthy stage career that’s seen her essay roles in classics from A Streetcar Named Desire to Death Of A Salesman.
