Happy Father’s Day! This episode we pay tribute to some of our favorite fictional fathers from movies and television shows. From Mike, he picked Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor from Home Improvement, Daniel Hillard from Mrs. Doubtfire, and Sam Dawson from I Am Sam. Rob picked Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights, Homer Simpson from The Simpsons, and The Man from The Road.
When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson jumped ship from wrestling to becoming a movie star with The Scorpion King, his future was bright with a surprising $91 million domestic gross. Fifteen years later and almost $3 billion worth at the box office domestically, Johnson is now considered one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood… but should he? Baywatch just flopped to a pathetic $18 million opening, so the question is, how bankable is he really? We discuss and debate this issue.
