Episode notes

The Commando: Michael Jai White Talks Working With Donald Cerrone

This week’s guest: Michael Jai White. He’s an actor, a martial artist. He played the title character in the original live action Spawn movie. He played the title character in Black Dynamite. The title character in Tyson, the Mike Tyson biopic.

Or  maybe you saw him in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? Or Insecure? In those True North inserts?

He’s a big deal, a true action hero who’s always dreamed of doing comedy, and we’re thrilled to talk with Michael about the movies that made him who he is, including the TV miniseries Rich Man, Poor Man.

Michael Jai White’s latest film is called The Commando, you can check out the trailer here, watch it on VOD or maybe even in a theater near you.

Plus, before we go: Critics loved Birds of Prey, the Harley Quinn movie. At the box office, though, the movie was cursed with a release just before the pandemic made its way around the world. Jordan makes the case for why it’s time for this bisexual catastrophe to get a sequel.

About the show

On Feeling Seen, writer and general enthusiast Jordan Crucchiola invites filmmakers, writers, comedians, and artists to discuss the movie characters that made them “feel seen.” It’s about that instant when a person connects to a piece of art so deeply that they see themselves reflected in it. Every week Jordan gabs it up with a guest about those magical moments when they were watching a film and realized, “That’s me!” It’s an informative, funny, and comforting show about our intimate relationship with movies, the impact they have on our lives, and how they influence our art.
