All-time great character actor Stephen Tobolowsky might be best known as Ned Ryerson from GROUNDHOG DAY, but his film and television credits number in the hundreds. His thoughtful character choices for today are appropriately iconic — George Bailey from It’s a Wonderful Life and the Monster from Bride of Frankenstein. But the real highlight of this episode are Stephen’s riveting storytelling and invaluable wisdom about the hidden gifts a seeming catastrophe can bring.
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.
