Stephen Tobolowsky is a master storyteller, an actor appearing in over 150 movies and TV shows, and is a man with a remarkable musical background. We talk to Stephen about his upbringing, his early band Cast of Thousands who recorded with a young Stevie Ray Vaughan, and his friendship with Jimmie Vaughan on the set of Great Balls of Fire. Stephen also talks about his band L.A. Slugs, his film writing work with musician David Byrne, and we listen to Stephen tell many other great tales. When he’s not listening to Shubert, Haydn, or Nine Inch Nails, he is probably busy recording fascinating stories for his podcast The Tobolowsky Files hosted by David Chen at /Film, which is a spin-off of his outstanding storytelling movie Stephen Tobolowsky’s Birthday Party. Stephen also has a new e-book out called Cautionary Tales.
