Yes, he'd have some good picks.   I assume that TCM won't ask him with the controversy around his personal life.   I like when they have filmmakers for Guest Programmers.  You can see the influence of their picks on films they have made.  I'd like to see some British actors or filmmakers as G.P.  I think they might pick interesting/different films.

It seems like I used to tune in for Guest Programmers more regularly but I can't remember the last time I watched one.  This is partly due to no longer having a Now Playing monthly guide sitting on my coffee table.  I know it's online but it's not the same.

No, I recycled my Now Playing guides.  (Maybe I should have saved them!)  I don't find the new format as helpful or user friendly.  I also just don't find myself consulting it very often unless I'm looking for something specific.  I use the guide on my tv to see what's coming up and then record anything interesting.   I wonder if not having a N.P. guide in hand affects how often some people tune in?

Mel Brooks.  I think it would actually be just so cool if he actually chose his own movies for his picks.

He could have different movies for his picks too.  You never know.

He could also promote his Young Frankenstein book.  A Mel Brooks Book Young Frankenstein The Story Of The Making Of The Film.

Which I am reading right now and I’m really loving it.  It is just so neat and so cool and he’s a really great and really funny guy.

I really love him a whole lot.

Tim Allen

and since it’s Sesame Street’s 50th Anniversary?  The whole cast of Sesame Street.

It seems like Mel Brooks would have been on but I can't seem to find anything indicating that he has.  It seems like an obvious choice. (I think he did something with the TCM Film Fest.)   I'd be curious to see which movies he was influenced by or liked growing up.  Tim Allen could be a good one, too.  Who knows?  I honestly can't remember the last time I was really interested in who the guest programmer was.

From remembering my files Mel was about 98% a GP already

thanks

No problem! I just did a search for "Mel Brooks" and nothing popped up.  He must not have been a guest programmer but on as an interview or spotlighting his own movies.  I agree that Albert Brooks would be another good choice.

Albert Brooks is very funny.  Have you ever seen "Mother" where Debbie Reynolds plays his mom?  It's got some very funny scenes.

I'm afraid that I'm not a big fan of Don Rickles, though.

Is TCM even doing Guest Programmers anymore?  I can't remember the last one I've seen, I think it might have been Julie Andrews last year.  You've got some good ones on your list.  I remember you mentioning Rick Moranis and Tim Allen before. They might make good hosts if TCM ever does Essentials, Jr again.   Steve Martin, Martin Short and Dick Van Dyke would get my top votes from your list. 

I'd love to see some British actors, too.  They might pick different movies from American actors that influenced them growing up.  How about Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Derek Jacobi, maybe Kenneth Branagh, Julie Christie or Helen Mirren?

I've said this in other places but I hope TCM will go back to interviewing actors like the old "Private Screening" that Robert Osborne used to do.

I’d love that too and when you get a chance?  Be sure to check the General Discussion board.  I also requested for them to bring back Now Playing The Show too.

 "Now Playing the Show"  Hmmm ... I don't remember that.  Are you talking about the Now Playing Guide?  I always had that month's  Now Playing monthly guide sitting on my coffee table.  I know it's online but it's not the same.   It was so easy to highlight upcoming movies and just reach over and take a peek what was  on that day.   I use my DVR and online guide to search and record movies now but I feel like I'm missing some movies.  

I'll keep an eye out for your posting in General Discussions. :)

Yes I am.  There was also a show called Now Playing The Show.  It was on every month and you were also able to watch what you read about in the guide every month.  It was great.  Let me know what you think when you find my post.  It’s on the General Discussion board and I think the last guest programmer was Robert Redford and that guy.  If I remember right?  Let’s keep our fingers crossed and see if they bring it back.  I hope so.  How about you?
