When your giant ship at sea is split in half by a huge winter storm and the half with the radio is the part that went down, my standard behavior is to curl into a ball and start whimpering. Not so Casey Affleck, the ship’s alpha mechanic who gathers his men into a physics-fighting force to buy them time until hopefully somebody notices they’re missing. Insert Chris Pine on shore as a shy member of the Coast Guard who is ordered to take some men out on a tiny boat and see what they can do….basically a suicide mission. But, this is a true story and it’s from Disney so ya know….Elliott and Chris do their best to come to a consensus on this one.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
