Welcome to the Munsons at the Movies podcast. Each episode we delve into the filmography and impact of a randomly selected actor.
In this episode, we explore the career of Matthew Broderick. Best known for his roles as Ferris Bueller in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986), David in WarGames (1983), and Leo Bloom in The Producers (2005), Broderick has been a force in the world of film, theater, and television. Joined once again by Chip Hessenflow of the Too Much Scrolling podcast, we discuss Broderick's odd connection to Fisher Stevens, how his role in The Lion King (1994) affects his box office numbers, the double-edged sword that is his role as Ferris Bueller, whether we liked him as a Director in Infinity (1996), and how his high-profile car accident in 1987 affected his career. Where does Broderick rank on the Munson Meter? Listen to find out.
