Jamey DuVall appears to be straight out of central casting, namely from the office marked “Movie Gurus.” What with his not-so-vague resemblance to Orson Wells and a surname that’s thisclose to Bobby Duvall’s, our Movie Geeks United! host brings an air of authority to discussions of all things cinematic – not to mention the ease at which he puts such notable guests as Jon Voight, Francis Ford Coppola, Jeff Goldblum, Brian De Palma and Alan Rickman. Adding to the Lakeland, Fla., resident’s screen cred is the fact that his interviews frequently generate news that’s carried on the Internet Movie Database and other leading industry outlets. That said, it’s time we stop scribbling and start shouting “Action!”
