Episode Info:

Arye Gross (@thataryegross) is an actor with 40+ years in the business who always gives a memorable performance, wherever he pops up. He was absolutely one of the inspirations for this podcast. It's a personal episode too—as Arye has been a friend, mentor, and teacher to me over the years.

Arye has had a pretty amazing career. He’s got over 120 credits on IMDb and that doesn’t even account for the MULTIPLE recurring guest roles he’s had on shows like Diagnosis Murder, The Practice, Wildfire, The Riches, and as Dr. Sidney Perlmutter on Castle.

He’s also absolutely one of those “hey, it’s that guy” guys—he’s popped up in so many different things on screen over the years, from Just One of the Guys and Soul Man to Friends and Grey Gardens and a hundred other things—even if you didn’t know his name, you knew his face. I mean, he’s in the actual book called “Hey, It’s That Guy,” so , you know, it’s official. Though I have a feeling, after today's episode, you'll know who he is from now on!


Just a bit of what we cover in this episode:

  • Building props that he's used onstage
  • Being re-cast as the narrator of The Wonder Years
  • Upstaging Dan Aykroyd with strawberries
  • Neuroscience, empathy, and authenticity
  • Being embraced and rejected by the audience
  • Getting fired multiple times from the same show
  • What Arye still loves about acting

Plus a whole lot more!
