Episode 185: Top 10 Character Actors / Bad Times at the El Royale

This week it's either a good time or a bad time at the El Royale as a battle line is drawn right through the middle of the hotel, with one side representing one host's view that it was a quality, suspenseful film, and the other representing the POV that it was a bag of very long winded-ass
And as if that wasn't enough, the boys then clash over who qualifies as a character actor in this week's countdown celebrating those actors and actresses who disappear into their roles or are so utterly believable in any supporting role they take on.
It's certainly a fiery one! And, surprisingly enough, it features far less talk about genitalia than usual (which is how you KNOW the lads got distracted by each other's ridiculous viewpoints!)
