Actor Sean Astin in the MCL: 'Lord of the Rings,' 'The Goonies' and 'Vox Populi'

Sean Astin, actor, director,
and host of the "Vox Populi" podcast

It may seem a bit unusual to have Sean Astin as a guest on a Disney-themed podcast, but then again the actor known best for his work in The Lord of the Rings, Rudy, and The Goonies has also appeared in his share of Disney projects. Astin was the voice of Special Agent Oso on Disney Junior, voiced Hercules for the Kingdom Hearts video game, and, while still a teenager, starred in The B.R.A.T. Patrol on The Wonderful World of Disney.

Yeah, he's got the Disney thing covered.

And anyway, when you get a chance to have Sean Astin on your show, you go for it.

The whole interview came about because last year I contributed to Sean's Kickstarter campaign to raise money for Vox Populi, a podcast he hosts. As a reward for my contribution, Sean gave me a 15-minute Skype call that I parlayed into a nearly 20-minute interview in The Mouse Castle Lounge. During our conversation, Sean talked about his show, his film career, and why voicing Mickey Mouse would be his dream job.

That was Sean's payback to me. My payback to you for being a loyal listener to The Mouse Castle Lounge, is to give you a chance to win some Sean Astin autographed swag. You can win this signed lithograph from Sean's first feature film The Goonies:

All you have to do is listen to the show, answer the oh-so-easy trivia question I ask during it, then call in your answer to the MCL Listener Line at (702) 475-5625. Be sure to leave your name, e-mail address, and the city you're calling from (you must be a U.S. Resident to enter). This weekend, I'll draw a winner at random from all the correct entries and, quicker than you can say, "Goonies never say die," the prize could be yours. Good luck!

Today, let The Mouse Castle Lounge be your one show to rule them all. Enjoy!
