Monday October 1, 2012 Alan Thicke
On our first show of the week, the great Alan Thicke is in the red chair. Remember when people used to gather around the TV set together and watch '80s sitcoms? (Back then they were just sitcoms). Alan was one of the great TV dads back then, and he's still a much-loved icon in Canada and around the world. He's in town for the world premiere of the stage musical 'Queen for a Day.' And on our panel, another Canadian comedy legend: SCTV alum Andrea Martin joins us. You can catch Andrea on the Sunday, September 30, episode of 'Over The Rainbow' on CBC at 8 pm, and Monday's results episode, also at 8.
Tuesday October 2, 2012 Alexander Siddig
On Tuesday's show, actor Alexander Siddig joins us in the red chair. Born in Sudan and raised in the U.K., Alexander played Dr. Julian Bashir on 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine' and starred in the critically acclaimed Canadian film 'Cairo Time' opposite Patricia Clarkson. His latest film 'Inescapable' is by the same director, and it looks at the complex situation in Syria. It opened at the Toronto International Film Festival. Plus, our comedy panel features Italian-Australian comic Joe Avati. Joe's crossing Canada on his Back to Basics tour - see if he's in coming to a city near you right here.
Wednesday October 3, 2012 Darren Criss
You might have heard about talented actor and singer Darren Criss for the first time on the internet - he rose to fame with his online Harry Potter spoof, 'A Very Potter Musical.' But now you know him from 'Glee.' Darren plays a gay character, and he believes the role requires a serious degree of responsibility. But it's not all serious: Darren's starring opposite Kristen Wiig in the new comedy 'Imogene.' And our comedy panel features Warren Kinsella, a Toronto-based lawyer, author, musician, political consultant, blogger, and - well, basically, he does it all. Should be a great show.
Thursday October 4, 2012 Xavier Dolan
On Thursday, director Xavier Dolan sits down to talk with George. Xavier showed his talents early in life: he directed the Cannes hit 'J'ai tue ma mere' ('I Killed My Mother') at the tender age of 19. But that wasn't even his first foray into show biz. He was a child actor in Quebec before he became a director. His latest film is called 'Laurence Anyways,' and it played at the Toronto International Film Festival.
