Joining Rove on the couch from the set of Rove LA on Monday September 26, are home grown international superstar HUGH JACKMAN, the very stylish TIM GUNN from Project Runway and American actor and comedian PAUL F. TOMPKINS.
Rove catches up with his mate Hugh Jackman before he travels back home to promote Shawn Levy’s Real Steel, a boxing drama set in the near-future where 2,000-pound human-looking robots battle one another. Hugh talks about being punched by his boxing coach Sugar Ray Leonard and reveals insights into his life before he was famous.
Tim Gunn, fashion mentor in the six-time Emmy-nominated series Project Runway, talks about the series, how he ‘makes it work’, that he doesn’t date, he can’t run and believe it or not was once a competitive swimmer.
Paul F. Tompkins has been writing and performing comedy for twenty years with countless accolades and roles in television and film (Weeds and The Sarah Silverman Program). He explains why Sci-Fi conventions freak him out and have traumatised him for life.
The one hour series also provides viewers with Rove’s take on the LA way of life and brings a weekly slice of Hollywood taking you beyond the tourist traps to discover why the phrase ‘Only in LA’ was coined. This week he visits the LA County Coroner’s gift store where the chalk body outline beach towel is the most popular item alongside BBQ aprons and toe ring key rings.
