Eating Sliders, Talking Sliders With Jerry O’Connell (Interview)
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GIVE HER YOUR GREEK LETTERS, DEREK? YOUR DEVOTION WAS THE MAKING OF YOUR OWN DEMISE.
Topics include, but aren’t limited to, giant cat dumps, Jerry O’Connell (Sliders, Tomcats) being the “fat kid from Stand By Me”, a brief and close encounter with Facebook, the art of auditioning, dealing with rowdy fans, the rise and fall of a Call of Duty addict, making explosives, collecting dogs, shitting in the bathtub, being jealous of Corey Feldman (despite his obviously inferior bike-riding skills), attempting to explain the plot of Game of Thrones (having not seen it), answering the question “what has Jerry O’Connell been up to?” and JAG? Seriously, guys … JAG? DEREK GAVE HIS LIFE AND YOU’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT SOME CBS HOGWASH FROM THE 90s?
Come on, Derek — your girlfriend had a giant serial-killer target painted on her forehead and you get up and sing to the cafeteria about your undying love for her, making YOU an even larger target? Do you not realize how statistically unlikely it is that she was THE one? Did you really think you were gonna get married and have kids with your first girlfriend out of college? But sure, dude … give her your Greek letters so your frat bros will tie your drunk ass up, making you an easy target for Timothy Olyphant — a scheming weiner you could normally pound into the ground like a railroad spike. YOU LOST TO TIMOTHY GODDAMN OLYPHANT, DEREK. And the worst part? Sidney barely even mourns you, dude. Unlike you, she understood the fleetingness of young romance and moves on quicker than a kid flushing their goldfish.
YOU COULD HAVE BEEN ANYTHING, DEREK! YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A BIG SHOT! BUT YOU JUST HAD TO GIVE HER YOUR FUCKING LETTERS, DIDN’T YOU?
Anyway, check out this podcast/interview that doesn’t even attempt to address Derek’s death in Scream 2 … but does have an abundance in futuristic litter boxes and cameos by a few wonderful humans and at least one talkative feline. Also, they eat sliders in this. During the interview. Oh right, and they also talk about Sliders — including the possibility of a reboot, which I guess is something we should have led with.
