Biff Yeager, an experienced Hollywood character actor who has been in many popular movies and TV shows such as: Edward Scissorhands, Batman Returns, Repo Man, Sid and Nancy, Seinfeld, Golden Girls, Gilmore Girls, Preacher, and our favorite: Star Trek: The Next Generation. On TNG he played Chief Engineer Lt. Commander Argyle in season one. Biff shined in his role, but only did 2 episodes. This is known as "The Legend of Argyle"* and we get to the bottom of it. We also find out Argyle's first name, and how his character dies (not canon - but close enough).
* Argyle (and Biff) had a recent ST:TNG renaissance due to the popular podcast "The Greatest Generation". Hosts (Ben Harrison and Adam Pranica) spotlighted Lt. Commander Argyle one day, and their fans on social media took it from there. Biff's now a GreatestGen listener that responds to his fans and friends on twitter. Also, we find out if Biff would appear at "Gen Con 2017"!
Did you know Biff was a big deal on Gilmore Girls too? He talks about the upcoming Gilmore Girls Fan Fest in Connecticut. Will "Tom, the Contractor" appear at the CT. Fan Fest? With or without a beard??
Most recently Biff played a minor yet critical character on AMC's "Preacher". His character changes the entire landscape of the show! We talk about his work on Preacher, so... SPOILER ALERT if you did not see the finale!
Biff's a great guy, and truly an artist first and foremost. Chuck and I got to see some of his fractal artwork and it's amazing. He's putting together a book of his art pieces, and hopes it will be available to purchase by Christmas. While you're waiting for that, go to Amazon right now and get the children's book he and his daughter collaborated on: Smokey The Cat. It's based on Biff's actual cat finding his purr. Aww!
One thing we forgot to mention on our show, Biff's twitter handle is @Biff_Yeager. Go follow him and tell him you heard him on our show! (Or at least follow him.)
Thanks for downloading this episode, and please leave us a kind review on iTunes.
(Oh, if seems like we said our goodbyes and dumped out quickly at the end of the episode... SKYPE is a fickle mistress. The connection crapped out, so I edited around that stuff. Maybe I pulled it off, let me know.)
