Over the Christmas Period and in January, Josh has continued to clock up more hours on-air as talkRADIO’s resident Entertainment Correspondent. From discussing Home Alone 2 at Christmas, the biggest showbiz moments of the year, talking telly, to interviewing A-List stars, there is nothing on-air Josh won’t do!
Josh was invited by Netflix to interview the cast of two huge pandemic releases for talkRADIO. First, Josh secured exclusive interviews with the cast of Rebecca. Despite cancelling on the likes of Graham Norton and Good Morning America, Josh was still able to get an exclusive with Lily James and Armie Hammer as well as reuniting with Kristin Scott-Thomas and Sam Riley – both of whom he secured exclusive interviews with before the pandemic.
The first junket went so well, Netflix invited Josh to interview more A-List actors in the new movie The Dig starring Carey Mulligan & Ralph Fiennes where he secured interviews with both stars.
To promote her newest film ‘Blithe Spirit’, Leslie Mann virtually sat down with Josh Rom for The Mark Dolan Show on talkRADIO.
Leslie stars in the movie alongside Dame Judi Dench, Dan Stevens & Isla Fisher, where she plays the disgruntled ghost Elvira Condomine in the new period drama/comedy.
Leslie reveals that she was SUPER intimidated by the prospect of working with Dame Judi Dench, she’s also been watching A LOT of RuPaul’s Drag Race with her daughter and she makes her verdict between Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt and Chris Evens in the Hollywood Chris controversy … complete with some surprising revelations!
Rebecca – directed by Ben Wheatley is one of the big Netflix movie releases of 2020. Starring the likes of Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas, the film has provided substantial distraction away from the day to day pressures of lockdown.
Lily James pulled out of several high profile media interviews news after the scandal with fellow actor Dominic West, including Graham Norton and The Today Show. However Josh still managed to bag an exclusive virtual interview with her for talkRADIO as well as several of the other big name stars of the film.
Once again Josh was invited by Netflix to interview the cast of ‘Sex Education’ to cover the release of the second season of the smash-hit show for talkRADIO and BANG Showbiz.
Josh had a lovely catch up with Asa Butterfield, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells and Kedar Williams-Stirling. Plus he also got to chat to newbies Patricia Allison & Tanya Reynolds – plenty of laughs were had!
To finish off 2019, Josh blagged one of the first exclusive interviews for the smash hit film 1917 – with Sir Sam Mendes, George MacKay and Dean Charles-Chapman on talkRADIO, showing that he can truly spot a hit!
The film ended up taking home plenty of accolades at the Golden Globes, BAFTAs and the Academy Awards with the team being super in demand across the globe during award season.
