Live on Stipko Live!
were very excited when we learned from Cousin Lucy of Bronson
that Bronson had done a rather lengthy and interesting interview with Aaron
Stipkovich! This is a terrific piece, and Aaron starts out by talking to
Bronson about about his incredible role in True Romance, learning some
very interesting information about how he approached some of the more difficult
scenes in that film. Aaron also asks Bronson about turning down Beverly
Hills Cop 2, about reality television in general and Bronson's upcoming new
series for the Do It Yourself network and Home and Garden Television in which
Bronson will be restoring one of his homes, which is scheduled to debut in
January (and we will bringing you more information about that as we learn more!)

Many fans will
know that Bronson Pinchot has been doing the narration for audio books for
several years now and has recorded over fifty audiobooks for Blackstone

Gardner interviewed Bronson for Blackstone and both the audio version and

Mark's Headed Back to Broadway!
is no perfect stranger to the Broadway stage, and he will be returning to tread
the boards at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in the highly anticipated trilogy Relatively
Speaking, a show that's actually three plays in one, springing forth from
the minds of some of the most impressive artists in existence! Each act is
a separate story: Talking Cure was written by Ethan Coen (who formerly
penned Almost an Evening in which Mark co-starred); George is Dead
was written by Elaine May; and Honeymoon Motel was penned by none other
than Woody Allen! This third story is the one in which Mark will
appear. Directed by John Turturro, the show will also star Marlo Thomas,
Julie Kavner, Steve Guttenberg, Patricia O'Connell, Jason Kravitz, Lisa Emery
and many more! Previews begin on September 20th and will official open on
October 20th. If you plan to be in New York at all, this would definitely
be the show to catch!

released Season 1 and 2 episodes, DVD, but there are a also scattered Season 3,

certainly carving out a niche for himself in the world of audio book narration
and the Audio Book world has been sitting up and taking notice, even awarding
him an Audie for his work! Recently, Adam Boretz of Publisher's Weekly

Alexander Best Feature in Vegaaas!
Alexander was screened at the Las Vegas Film Festival on July 17th and we've
learned that the film won Best Feature Film in the competition! Cousin
WhitLovesBalki0327 attended the screening and while Bronson did not appear at
the festival she reported the following on our Forums: "After the movie was
done there was a Q&A with the director, co-director, and star Rick Faugno
and (luckily) one audience member asked how they got Bronson. They all
said that he found out about the movie and loved the script, and wanted to play
in it. They went on to go about how a sweet and wonderful person he was
during filming and when they were not and willing to do the film for free and
support the up-coming directors and crew since it was an Indie film."
The movie is currently looking for a distributor and will hopefully be screened
in more areas and eventually released on DVD as well!

Slight Hitch . . . They're Sold Out!
We often report
on Perfect Strangers related stories on our Facebook group well in
advance of posting them here. Such was the case when we mentioned that
Mark Linn-Baker would be appearing at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Lewis
Black's play One Slight Hitch, running from July 6 - 17 in the Berkshires
of Western Massachusettes. Much to our surprise, the website Berkshire On
Stage has now reported that the two week run is already completely sold
out! Mark reunites to work with his long-time friend Lewis Black and in
the website's written piece, complete with photos from rehearsals of the show,
Mark reminisces about the play's origins and comments Black's social commentary
and its relevance in today's society.

Anyone Else Detect a Hint of Mypos Here?
learned late last week (thanks to Cousin WhitLovesBalki0327 and also Cousin
Pavan of SitcomsOnline.com)
that Bronson was going to be making a guest appearance on The Disney Channel
series Shake It Up!, debuting on Sunday, June 12th. The episode
will be repeating throughout the week on The Disney Channel (you can check the
days and times by going to our What's
On Television? page!) Bronson played the father of fraternal
twins Gunther and Tinka, an eclectic brother and sister dance team with unique
accents which hail from an unpronounceable mountain country (sound
familiar?) And if you think the twins are unique, wait until you see their
parents! As Rocky observed, "Gunther and Tinka are the normal
ones!" The appearance gave Bronson a chance to be zany (as well as to
sing!) and if he seemed right at home in front of the camera it has to be in
part because of the familiar face behind the camera . . . the episode was
directed by none other than Perfect Strangers' and Second Sight
veteran director Joel Zwick! If you have a chance to catch this funny
episode sometime this week or in the future, definitely do!

You Have to Do is Siiiiiign Your Name . . .
Due to popular
demand on our Forums and the frustration of many Cousins who have been trying
their best to be patient for Warner Bros. Home Video to release more episodes of
Perfect Strangers to DVD, we have decided to set up a petition at
PetitionOnline.com whereby fans can make their voices heard! What can you
do to help? Well, you can start by signing the petition, of course (don't
be ridiculous!) And then spread the word amongst family, friends, blogs,
anywhere you think there may be fans who also want to see the episodes on DVD.
Our goal is to obtain 10,000 signatures. That's a lot, we know, but we may
as well aim high! We know there are lots of fans who want to see these
shows released on DVD, and we will also be spreading the word as best we
can. Let's let our collective voices be heard!

Perhaps Florida is More Inviting This Time of Year?
Many thanks to
the folks at David Pomeranz' Official Website for letting us know that David
will be performing in concert at the Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida, on
January 29th at 8:00 p.m.! As you know, David is the wonderful singer of Perfect
Strangers' iconic theme song Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now, but he also
penned many classic songs sung by the likes of Barry Manilow, Clay Aiken, Kenny
Loggins, Bette Midler, Freddie Mercury, and so many more! It should be a
really wonderful concert, so don't miss out on your chance to see him if you're
in that neck of the woods!
