Comic Book Men – Q&A With Billy Dee Williams

comic-book-men-episode-414-billy-dee-williams-325Comic Book Men guest star Billy Dee Williams talks about playing Star Wars‘s Lando Calrissian, some behind-the-scenes memories and more.

Q: What did you think of the Stash when you came into the store?

A: I thought that huge Millennium Falcon was interesting. I’d never seen anything like it.

Q: Are you a fan of comic books?

A: Not anymore. It’s not that I’m not a fan, I just don’t sit around reading comic books now. I watch cartoons. There’s spectacular stuff out there. When I was younger, I read Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel and things like that, and a lot of newspaper comics like Dick Tracy.

Q: In the episode, Kevin Smith says he thinks there are two Lando’s — treacherous Empire Strikes Back Lando and good Return of the Jedi Lando. Do you agree?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Darryl McDaniels

comic-book-men-episode-413-darryl-mcdaniels-325Comic Book Men guest star Darryl McDaniels talks about his lifetime love of comic books, the legacy of Run-DMC and creating his own comic book.

Q: In the episode, you mention you’d wanted to see the Stash. What did you think?

A: It was simply amazing! The selections they have there, the artifacts, the toys — it’s really thorough. For a person in love with comic book culture and science fiction, there’s stuff there for people three years old to a hundred years old.

Q: Comic books have had a huge impact on your life. How did comic books form your childhood?

A: As a kid, I was bullied, and growing up was kind of miserable. But comic books were the one world where everything was perfect, where I was powerful and empowered. On the outside, I was this little nerdy kid who wears glasses and went to Catholic school, and everyone thought I was a little weakling. But they had no idea that, just like a superhero, the strength that was within me — both creatively and artistically — when it came time for me to come out of my shell.

Q: How did you go from being a self-proclaimed “shy nerdy kid” to becoming the “King of Rock”?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Ashley Greene

comic-book-men-episode-412-ashley-greene-325Comic Book Men guest star Ashley Greene talks about what it’s like to be Kevin Smith‘s assistant, her role on Jay and Silent Bob’s Top 5 Comics Countdown and how she got so good at closing deals.

Q: What’s the best part of being Kevin’s assistant?

A: I have the most fun when we’re filming. I really want to act; that’s been my dream ever since I was two and a half years old. When we’re on set, I see all these amazing actors and actresses perform and I get to see Kevin direct. Kevin’s sets are so amazing. People always walk out of there saying, “I’ve never been on such a cool set. I wish I could work with Kevin all the time.” He just sets such a good mood. Plus, he gave me a small scene in Yoga Hosers with his daughter, Harley Quinn, and Johnny Depp’s daughter and son. He’s definitely opening doors and being his assistant is definitely benefiting.

Q: What do you think is different about Kevin’s style that makes it much more relaxed?

A: Kevin always says he’s an editor, not a director, which we all know is absolutely crazy. But I think he means that instead of telling the actors what to do, he lets the actors make choices on their own. If he wants them to do something different, he’ll shout it out. But he lets the actors play and have fun, and he keeps his calm. Every time someone comes to set for the first time, he always announces it to the whole crew and makes everyone feel special and important.

Q: Why did Kevin ask you to spend a week across the country at the Secret Stash?

Comic Book Men – Q&A With Butch Patrick

comic-book-men-episode-411-butch-patrick-325 Comic Book Men guest star Butch Patrick talks about his favorite memories from playing Eddie Munster on The Munsters and interesting interactions with fans for over 50 years.

Q: In the episode, you mention that you had wanted to see the Stash for awhile. Did it live up to your expectations?

A: It was awesome, that was a real treat. I have a lot of friends in the area and I had heard about the store, so it was fun to finally see the legendary Secret Stash.

Q: In the episode, Walt confesses that he always wanted Eddie Munster to be his best friend. What is it like to hear that from strangers?

A: You know, I have run across that so many times. One of the most recurring things people say is “I used to run home from school because you were my imaginary family,” and “I wanted to be your best friend,” so Walt making that statement was cool. But I’ve actually heard it a bunch of times and it always makes me feel good.

Q: Do you have a TV character that you would like to be friends with?
