Someone in Hollywood has clearly decided that biopics about beloved children’s storybook writers are a cash cow. This time we take a look at the creator of Winnie the Pooh (played by Domhnall Gleeson), his often-absentee wife (Margot Robbie) and the precocious child of theirs that was the basis for the Christopher Robin character from the books. Taking a darker turn than these types of affairs generally do, the crew was kinda mixed on this. Listen to Chris, Elliot and Frank deliver the deets.

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.
