Adam Goldberg, Erik, George Segal discussed on KTOK Programming
Radio 1000. Katie, Okay. Last time I had to run, I was teasing her about her new song about boxed wine. Haley or Auntie is here to talk about the eighth season of the Goldberg She plays Erica on that sitcom. Have you had any good boxed wine lately? Haley You know what Dr Lee been a while. I've been drinking. Yeah, I have to. Because that I don't drink as much truth. Exactly True Confessions to keep you tell us about the eighth season of the Goldbergs. The kids are about to leave or they have left the nest. Have a thing. Well, so two of us have to some degree. I mean, we can't really go too far away from Beverly Goldberg. But, um, two of US air in college, and my character is now living in her own apartment. And one is still in high school. It's actually Adam senior Year, but season eight. Is that a really big one? I feel like for Erica, especially, um, and she Even though she's been living on her own. She also finally declared a major, and she's gonna be doing pre law. Which is awesome. Because, of course we've seen over the last eight years, Severally mentioning how she could have been a lawyer, so I'm kind of in what her mom, but that would have been It's been really cool, and I can't give anything away. But the end of this season is going to be really big for Erica. I have a hunch that Erica got into law begrudgingly because her mother encouraged it so much. Well, you know, it's it's actually interesting how she came to terms with, like, Oh, you know what? I definitely could be aware she was trying to declare a major and Brother Barry, who's always decided that he's going to be a doctor. She tried to, like, piggyback off of his idea, his degree and when she realized that didn't work and almost got him kicked out of school, she defended him, which kind of showcase the audience like. Oh, she's really great it defending people and situations and think she cares about so. She's now in pre long well and among the rest of the family. Eric is the one with the ground wire still semi attached. Yes, I feel like an old man and a lot of situations and the family kind of spirals out around. I feel like she's kind of the one that they check in with, but don't get me wrong. Erica has her moments where she kind of loses it and has to be directed and guided through whatever she's going through. She has her own knew. Rosie's just like the rest of the family, which I know is is based on the one of the writers Adam Goldberg he he's basically he basically videotaped his whole life and is now taking cues from those videotapes. Exactly. Yeah, um, it's really to me. That's the most exciting part of the episodes is at the end. You get to see that home video of him as a child, and often times these video clips. Connect to the storyline that you just watched in the show, and it just makes it all that more real. And I think that's why people really resonate with it. We're talking about the eighth season of the Goldbergs and Haley Arancha, who plays Erica. But you are the most different than the reality. That is Adam Goldberg's life. He had a brother. He did not have a sister, a brother named Eric. And so you're you are Erica. Um, Have you met Erik? And is Erica anything like the real Eric? E have met Eric and his lovely family and they're always a pleasure to get to talk to you. They're super nice. Um, and thankfully, Eric was happy to have Adam kind of switch it up and add a sister in the mix. Um, And I think for a long time, Eric was okay with that, because anything that was embarrassing about his life story to just hide behind like, Oh, no, That's Erica Erica. But, um At the same time, Eric There's a lot of things that Erica that are not, um, pertaining to Eric's like, for example, the music aspect that was something that was from my own life that I mentioned to Adama Goldberg that he Very kindly added into the character unexpectedly. Um, so that's a big part of Erica that I feel like Eric did not grow up playing instruments did did Eric become a lawyer? No, he's actually doctor. Okay, just like his just like his real dad. Yeah. Yeah, because the real dad of the Goldberg actually was a doctor. But that Z getting a little deep into the weeds. And I know that fans of the show will know that with Mia's Haley or Auntie, who plays Erica. I also no fans of the show love watching all of the Easter eggs that are hidden in the sets when you all are shooting. Are you aware of those Easter eggs? Or do they pop up as a surprise to you? Just like everybody else. If your are your friends like 19 eighties related thing, or, like all of the pictures in the band, and nobody has many pictures on their wall, But evidently, Adam's family did. Oh, yeah. I mean, we've got in. It's interesting. I've never I need to be more in on the Twitter verse of anybody's correct. I've missed out on this. Um, No, we have tons of Photos throughout the house that air mixed in with all of the cast. As we've been growing up, as well as some of Adam's real family, it's kind of a mix of everything, so that's interesting there. I wonder if people have picked up on where the photos of Adam Goldberg are vs. The cast. But, um, first eighties Easter eggs go. There's they're everywhere. You can avoid that, but no, you can't avoid it. It all Haley Ranch is also with us or Haley. You have a musical career had been working on. How's that going? How's the sales of your record? I mean, well, that second question I can't really answer. Okay, Aske. Far as like, you know, I feel like it's been difficult. Being an independent artist for this one years despite having such a great platform and show behind me in the music industry is just 12 times harder. I feel like in a lot of ways and in the film industry. Um but I still love making music no matter what, and for me, it More about being able to just share my experiences and write about kind of the perspective I have on things and hoping that those songs resonate with other people. And it's been such a thrill in the past when I have been able to go on to her to talk with different people from all walks of life who had their own Kind of take on some of these songs and their own perspective. And I love hearing that how it kind of resonates with them. You work with George Segal. He placed pops on the Goldberg on the Goldbergs with Haley. Oh, Rancho who plays Erica and you know he is first of all fantastic. I love him and everything he does. But back in the day he did quite a lot of ukulele playing on shows like Smothers Brothers, and I think he got the Smothers Brothers thrown off the air for the song they saying, But Do you ever do you ever sit down with him and have a jam session with his ukulele? Well, he love his banjo, So I just want to hear him play ukulele, but he has been crushing the Bandra. Oh, um and there were times and I want to say season You know, early seasons like one through four, where they did Actually, white seems and where he got to play the banjo, and I would like, walk in and sit down and have a discussion with him. Um I don't think I've ever gotten to sing with him, though. Even though I'm hoping at some point that happens because it is just that iconic part of George Segal. He would go on these shows and play music and, um Any case. I think he took what I know. He plays every single day. That's good to know because he I've seen him do it a lot, and I don't remember I have to try to YouTube it or something. But there was a segment on the Smothers Brothers Variety show where he and the Smothers Brothers saying an anti Vietnam War song and CBS just thought that was too controversial and I think it was the The onus for getting them throw off the air. But I may be wrong on that you might need to check with Georgia should not know that. But I would not be too surprised in that situation. Okay? Haley Arancha, the Goldberg the Goldbergs on ABC and their eight season we look forward to that. And thank you for joining us today. Yeah. Thank you so much. Take care.
