Eric Roberts vs. Robert Vaughn, Podcast Style

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

We here at Risky Fuel believe in the principle that you “find your people.”

So if, say, you’re the sort of person who is super-obsessed with late actor/spy Robert Vaughn, all you have to do is check in with someone who’s obsessed with actor/cartoon villain Eric Roberts to put together that the two of them had worked together on the film A Cry From Within.

Next thing you know Sarah is on episode #42 of the Eric Roberts Is The Fucking Man podcast talking to host Doug Tilley about Vaughn and Roberts.

One of the things Sarah’s bosses at Asian World Of Martial Arts like to do is sponsor emerging ninja types as they navigate both the world of elite combat sport and the entertainment world.

One such benefactor, Kieran Tamondong, was recently part of a new Power Rangers campaign.

Sarah wrote about it for AWMA.

Idris Elba

Actor Idris Elba’s attempts to become a professional kickboxer — and to make a document of the journey called Idris Elba: Fighter — have been a subject of some interest for the Risky Fuel household.

The Discovery channel has now released a “best bits” video for the first episode of the series.

Sarah wrote about it for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Idris Elba: Fighter Doc Is Smart, Real

Idris Elba

Idris Elba

For fans of Stringer Bell, DCI John Luther or his real-life non-actor personification as Idris Elba, the idea of Elba embarking on a quest to become a pro kickboxer on the wrong side of 40 was… disconcerting.

Idris Elba: Fighter, the doc series that emerged from this journey, however, is entirely real and genuine.

Sarah watched and wrote about it for Fightland.

Letterkenny’s Dylan Playfair

On the very funny television show Letterkenny Dylan Playfair plays Reilly, a tough posturing hockey player who isn’t actually that tough.

Playfair knows real tough, though. He encountered it the first time he got into a real fight.

He told Sarah about it in an interview for Fightland.

Letterkenny’s Andrew Herr On Hurt Nipples, Fighting, Crying In Grade School

Letterkenny's Andrew Herr

Letterkenny’s Andrew Herr

One of the comic foil’s on the v amusing smalltown Canadian comedy Letterkenny is the “Jonesy” the hockey player, played by Andrew Herr.

On the show Jonesy is a frequently posturing, not entirely successful tough guy.

It turns out one of Herr’s first fights — an incident involving pinched nipple, crying in front of his classmates and shame — wasn’t particularly successful either.

Sarah wrote about it in a My First Fight piece for Fightland.
