It’s a Literate Edition of ‘The Mix’!

That’s right.

We said literate – as in, well, whatever the definition of literate is.

Old WHO Eyes?

Gay: Old WHO Eyes?

Among the guests “booked” on tonight’s Mix are two bestselling novelists, one comedian who’s a newbie author, one director whose latest flick is based on a hit play, one beloved mythical character reading aloud and one British actor chatting about the screenplay for his latest star vehicle.

More specifically, the show answers such all-important questions as:

—While researching a long Esquire magazine profile on Frank Sinatra, why Gay Talese (right) didn’t think it was all that important to interview the legendary crooner himself.

—Which little-known Christmas tale Santa Claus chose to officially kick off the holiday season.

—How the script for Nobel Son led star Alan Rickman to order a set of crooked teeth from his dentist.

—Why David Baldacci is “terrified” that Uncle Sam has enlisted his help to thwart terror attacks on U.S. soil.

—How a homicidal inmate prompted Kevin Nealon to sire his first child.

—Why Ron Howard insisted that Oliver Platt hold nothing back while impersonating Richard Nixon in the new flick, Frost/Nixon.

So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!


Kevin Nealon: Psycho Inmate Frightened Me Into Becoming a Daddy!

You’ve heard of shotgun weddings?

Well, how about psychotic conceptions?

Conjugal bliss.

Kevin and wife Yeagley: Conjugal bliss.

That, believe it or not, might best describe what prompted funnyman Kevin Nealon to become a father.

This week on Authors On Air, the Saturday Night Live alum – who, at age 53, had his first child, son Gable Ness, last year – dishes with host Michael Barnes about being a middle-aged dad.

And what was Kevin doing on Authors On Air?  He’s also a first-time author, of course – having penned the hilarious new book, Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me?

During the chat, Kevin recounted why he decided to settle down and start a family after decades of bachelorhood:

Proud (and relieved!) papa with Gable.

Proud (and relieved!) papa with baby Gabe.

“I got a letter from a woman in prison once. They can get your home address now, from the Internet. She was in prison because she threw battery acid on her husband.

“And she said she’d love to hook up with me and have my baby. And she was getting out in a year.

“And I thought, ‘This is crazy I can’t wait a year. I’m getting older. I need things to move along quicker!’”
