With the Kickstarter well on its way to being fully funded, fans want to know exactly what they’re funding. Since Joel said it would have a new cast, how do we know we’ll like it?
Well, I’m not sure how official this can be before any contracts are signed, but today he revealed who he wants the new host to be – and suffice it to say it’s a guy who has some experience cohosting a show with two other smartasses. Actually, the still image on the YouTube pretty much gives it away.
h/t Gallen Dugall, whom I presume is responsible for most of the funding all by himself.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
