Willy Wonka Interview w/ Paris Themmen “Mike Teavee”
I’m joined by Brooke Daugherty from Picardcast as well as Dan Ramirez from the Heroes of Noise podcast to talk to the one and only Paris Themmen “Mike Teavee as we celebrate 50 years of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
Directed by Mel Stuart and starring Gene Wilder as the legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka, this splendiferous movie brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl’s cherished book. Coated with flavorful tunes and production designs that are a visual treat for the eyes, this effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old. On a whirlwind tour of Willy’s incredible, edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized confections, a boy named Charlie (Peter Ostrum) will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart. And viewers will rediscover all the timeless magic as it was meant to be seen.
