Tommy Riles and Art Eddy talk about March Madness and the cool way Tommy’s father in law watches the games. Then the guys bring on actor Curtis Armstrong.

Believe it or not, actor Curtis Armstrong has been in the entertainment business for over thirty years. Fans of his work know him from his roles in Ray to his most iconic and memorable role as Booger in Revenge of the Nerds.

Did you know that Armstrong has been acting before he got his big break in Risky Business? Curtis got his taste of acting when he lived in Geneva, Switzerland with his family as a young boy. He would visit a little theater in the old town where they showed unabridged versions of old, silent films and he began to look to the actors of the 20s and 30s as inspiration. He co-founded a theater company after attending Oakland University Academy of Dramatic Arts and later moved to New York to pursue theater and film full time. For the past 30 years, in between filming television and movies, he continued to go back to his original love and could be seen on the stage.

Along with his fantastic career Curtis is a loving father. He was able to be the primary caregiver when his daughter was young. Curtis talks with us about that along with his other thoughts on fatherhood, acting, and more.
