We might as well start off as if this were our first episode. It's been a while huh? Well we've been working waaay too much but we managed to get together for you all another amazin' episode of Ed Loves Bacon (ELB for short, tho I know how Ed hates that acronym).
Anyway people, this week Ed sat down with Jason Schwartzman who's in the new film The Darjeeling Limited. He talked to us about the movie, filming in India, a crazy river scene, and he managed to squeeze in some details about his side project, Coconut Records, his one-man band.
He even let us play one of his songs for you, "West Side," so check that out after the interview.
Lately, John has jumped from behind the camera and taken the role of producer, with films Black Snake Moan and critically acclaimed, Hustle and Flow. John's latest project, Illegal Tender, is a fictional tale of a Nyurican gangster's legacy and one boys journey to find his way out of a maze of secrets and vendettas.
John stops by to discuss his latest project, issues in Black Hollywood and rumors of his makings of The Black Panther and Luke Cage projects.

I've been a big fan of actor Charles Dutton ever since his hit show Roc aired on Fox in the late '90s. Maybe it's the roles he chooses that I appreciate. He has gone from an Archie Bunker-esque garbage man in Roc to a twisted huntsman who makes sport of the homeless in Surviving the game and everywhere in between. No matter what role Dutton plays, he's straight on, honest and believable.
Last week, we had the opportunity to speak with Dutton at the 7th Annual Image Awards Gala held at the Fox Theater in Atlanta. Instead of doing the usual dog and pony questions, we instead asked his opinion on the Don Imus issue and the backlash against rap music. Dutton has been a long time advocate of civil rights and the state of Black America, so we felt it would be a safe bet that he'd tell it to us straight.
