Podcast 87: Forest Whitaker And Allen Leech

The Butler, at your service

Forest Whitaker is the Oscar-winning actor who's played pool sharks, samurai warriors and dictators in his time, but this week you can see him as a butler in The White House in, um, The Butler. Allen Leech, meanwhile, is the star of Downton Abbey who's now scaring you witless in In Fear, also out today.

As well as interviews with those two fine gentlemen, there are discussions of movie tropes, as well as a welter of date changes in 2015 which are sure to fry your mind. We also review all this week's big releases, including Don Jon, Dom Hemingway and The Counsellor.
