My guest on this episode of Voices In My Head is Stephen Tobolowsky. Stephen is one of the leading character actors in film today. USA Today listed Stephen as the 9th most frequently seen actor in movies; he has appeared over 200 movies and television shows. See here for credits.

He is best known for playing Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, Sammy Jankis in Memento, Werner Brandes in Sneakers, Happy Chapman in Garfield, and Mr. Bates in Freaky Friday.  On television, he played Tor Ekland on Seinfeld, Hugo Jarry on Deadwood, Bob Bishop on Heroes,  Sandy Ryerson on Glee and Stu Beggs on Californication. He is currently on screen in Silicon Valley and The Goldbergs.  Stephen will also appear in Netflix’s new series by Norman Lear, One Day at a Time (a new generation remake!); season 2 starts filming in June.

He wrote and performed Stephen Tobolowsky’s Birthday Party and The Primary Instinct, and wrote True Stories with David Byrne and Beth Henley.

His podcast with David Chen “The Tobolowsky Files” is available at Slashfilm.com and on iTunes, and also previously broadcast on KUOW 94.9 in Seattle, on WFPL in Louisville, KY and many stations through Public Radio International (PRI).*

His first book of stories, The Dangerous Animals Club, is published by Simon & Schuster September 25, 2012.  His second book, My Adventures with God, is now available everywhere, also published by Simon & Schuster.

Fun Facts:

He performed with Stevie Ray Vaughn when Stevie was 14 and cut the first songs Stevie ever performed.

It was such an honor to discover that the music video and sheet music for “Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing)” are being featured right now on CCLItv.com.

In the same way that purchasing a song from iTunes ensures that an artist is properly compensated for their work, CCLI guarantees a paycheck for worship song writers enabling churches to have real-time access to licensed Christian music and media while easing the burden of administration in the many complex issues related to copyright.

Thank you CCLI for featuring my music as we head into the Advent season.

Blessings,
Rick Lee James
