The Overlook Hour Guest Profile: Vito Trigo

The man of the hour for episode 36 is an incredibly high energy, deep intensity, and endlessly charismatic actor, who has captured the hearts of the Overlook's audience, Vito Trigo.

The role that solidified Vito in the Overlook's collective memory was in Science Team, which we screened just before Amazon Instant Video decided to purge a lot of its good independent horror movies. We immediately reviewed and purchased it. After listening to this episode, you may want to do the same.

Still from My Bloody Banjo
Vito also showed up as the easily enraged boss in My Bloody Banjo, which was also on the to-be-removed list. The DVD is ironically available on Amazon and through Midnight Releasing's site.

I'm personally looking forward to checking Vito out in Mr. Bricks. I have no idea what to expect from it but I like it that way.

And finally, what Lord Battle would refer to as an urban fantasy, Pig Pen, which you can find here. Vito talks about all of these films in episode 36, but he also goes into his love of pro wrestling, theatre, and explains why #sleepotrigo exists.
