Today on the podcast actor Stacy Keach and I discuss how he ignored his actor-dad’s advice to stay out of the business, how as a teenager he and his friend wrote a war epic for Roger Corman that never got made, how working with Robert Altman was a perfect fit for him, how mega-producer Ray Stark had to wrestle the backgammon board away from his Fat City director John Huston and how on that film Keach got knocked out cold while filming a boxing match. Lastly he sets the record straight about what is was like working with Cheech and Chong. All that and more on The New Hollywood Podcast.
