On this week’s 13th episode of the Legion of Leia Podcast, my co-hosts Anastasia Washington and Sabina Ibarra and I welcome guest Jeffrey Henderson, storyboard artist (Spider-Man 3, Oz the Great and Powerful, After Earth), musician, actor, standup and voiceover artist. And yes, this is the Jeff that I talk about all the time on the podcast! This week we talk about all sorts of geek topics … but the real moment of awesomeness is Jeff singing “Interstate Love Song” as Elvis. You can also count the number of vocal impressions he does in the hour as a drinking game. He once had a “Chewbacca-Off” with Jamie Alexander (Blindspot, Thor). I was there. It was glorious. (You can check it out here.)
Among our topics this week were Jennifer Lawrence‘s comments on sexism in Hollywood and speaking out instead of “being nice,” something most women have had to deal with in work situations. We take on J.J.Abrams and his promise not to Disney-fy Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We talk about the new Journey to The Force Awakens books and how they’ve actually done equal gender representation in the stories, and the amazing new opportunity for female writers from friend of the Legion Ashley Eckstein (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) and Her Universe.
There is so much more … make sure to follow Jeffrey @PlanetHenderson on Twitter and check out his amazing artwork and music on his website PlanetHenderson.com! Jeffrey will be appearing at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo this Halloween weekend in Los Angeles, selling artwork and shirts at his table and appearing on a number of panels.
