He is so darn lucky Char, Hilary, Helen, Susan or I are not going. :D

Although he does have a pretty good memory - at least for stories he does!!!

I hope someone gets to go to this - it looks like a hoot!!

Oh man! To think, it's not that long ago that we were the go-to site for that info...
(Yeah, we really are that old. Back when I started, weren't no Wikipedia, no IMDb, no Google image searches... Char was a pioneer!)

Ah! The good ole days, when everybody got along. ;-)

I wonder if they'll offer a podcast of it, so we can see how well he does.

That sounds like fun. It would be cool to follow along, see who know the answers better, us or him.

I was yelling..Tavington! HAHAHA He got 6.5 out of 10.
I got a few more correct than you, Jason :mrgreen:

I would love to have this video captioned! The audio wasn't that great.

Hey guys, there really are few people I would travel back into London to see on a weekend, or give up my Sunday lunch for, but of Jason is one of them and this was well worth the sacrifices :woot . It was such a fun afternoon, the unallocated seating was a real pain in the proverbial, but managed to sort that and get a front row seat and a dig from Jason so it was well worth sitting in the o2 for HOURS for ;-).

The audio on the video is pants because it was being recorded on a mobile phone on a selfie stick by the woman sitting next to me who worked for Empire Mag. I think the laughter you can hear is me!!! :lol :brows

Well - who could not laugh - Jason can be hysterical! The Passionada story had me laughing my ass off - even though I'd heard much of it before. This time he was much more descriptive. Died when he answered "chicken". And the wig stories are always good. But when he talked about Jackie Chan I just lost it. Loved the story about the baby and the train/truck scene.

I wonder sometimes if Jason did not have Divorcing Jack to do and was able to do Armageddon if his career would have taken a different turn. But no use second guessing fate. I give him major props for not pulling out of Divorcing Jack even though I'm sure the lawyers could have made it happen.

Some very fun questions by Empire. I was a bit worried they would either give him all softballs or that they would give him all impossible questions. I was a nice mix of both. I'm sure 18 questions were prepared because they were worried they would have some dead time. Ha - no worries with Jason. That boy is a born story teller.

Well it was kinda short notice, but living in London does have the odd advantage. It was well worth it :D. He is a wonderful raconteur, just tells such a brilliant story.
