The acting world has lost yet another talented young person. We talked to Jackson Odell at the premiere for Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer, way back in 2011. He went on to roles in iCarly, Modern Family, Arrested Development, Jessie, The Fosters and The Goldbergs. His most recent projects included writing songs for the movies Forever My Girl and Redemption. He will be missed.

You’ll find my interview with Jackson at 1:49.

In honor of the opening of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, please enjoy my interview with two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White. I talked with him at the X Games movie premiere in 2009. We congratulate him on making the 2018 Olympic team, and wish Shaun and all his teammates the best! Go for the gold! U-S-A, U-S-A!

It was fun talking with special guests, filmmakers and some of the cast of The LEGO Ninjago Movie at the premiere in Westwood. I met some great people, and also really enjoyed speaking with Jackie Chan again!

It was a fun crowd at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards at The Forum. I loved catching up with some Disney and Nickelodeon actors I haven’t seen in a while, as well as meeting some new actors, musicians and singers.

I visited the Intel booth at CES again this year, and they shared with me all the cool ways Intel is working to improve our daily lives, including sports analytics and artificial intelligence in cars.

SteveIt was a scorching day in Los Angeles, when we visited the Shrine Auditorium to speak with the cast and filmmakers of Despicable Me 3. It was nice to talk with Steve Carrell (Gru) and Dana Gaier (Edith) again, as well as special guest Becky G. We got a little behind the scenes scoop on the movie’s production as well. And, of course, we had to chat with everyone about minions!


I enjoyed speaking with the filmmakers and special guests at the premiere of Disneynature’s Born in China. I love animals, so it was especially gratifying to get a peek behind the scenes at how they made this magnificent documentary – the amazing work they put in to capture these creatures in their natural habitat.

It was also interesting to find out which animals the special guests, many from Disney and ABC shows, were most interested in.
