107. Jerry Bruckheimer

August 24th, 2015

For their seventh artist profile, Matt and Ed step a little bit out of their comfort zone by discussing someone who a) isn't an actor or director and b) hasn't made all that much work that they actually like. The person is question is Jerry Bruckheimer, the uber-producer who came to prominence in the 1980s with films like Flashdance, Top Gun and the Beverly Hills Cop series, and who has remained one of the most successful producers in Hollywood for three decades.

As part of the discussion they talk about Bruckheimer's tendency to forge strong working relationships with filmmakers which end the instant a film fails, his working relationship with the late Don Simpson, and try to discover the truth of what really happened on the Titanic.
