He Did the Whistling Belly-Button Trick at the High School Talent Show? Bing!


Back in December I directed your attention to The Tobolowsky Files, a podcast during which a certain Kimball High School and SMU grad offers a serialized account of his life story. The "final" episode of the first "season" ran a couple of weeks ago; in it, Stephen talks about coming back to Dallas recently to visit his nearly blind father and collect a long-shelved volume of Shakespeare -- no spoilers, though, listen for yourself. The series returns again next month.

Till then, then, here's a brief video posted by SMU a few days ago in which the actor famously known as Ned Ryerson and Sandy Ryerson talks to Meadows School of the Arts students about his own days on the Hilltop.
