I’ve raved about Baron Vaughn on my website for years as a multi-talented comedian and actor, and 2016 is allowing him to reach even greater heights — he plays Bud on Grace and Frankie alongside Joan Fonda and Lily Tomlin, which begins its second season on Netflix this May. He’ll provide the voice of Tom Servo in the much ballyhooed reboot of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which raised more than $6.3 million via Kickstarter. And he co-hosts the popular podcast, Maltin on Movies, with film critic Leonard Maltin, on the Earwolf network. Baron and I go way back, and he takes me all the way back to the beginning.

So let’s get to it!
