The gang’s all here for an especially sneaky episode of The Pick! After a lengthy break, we’re back with a tribute to perhaps the most legendary actor we’ve lost so far this year — Sidney Poitier. Of course, we do it by picking the movie of his that is most in line with this podcast’s very particular aesthetic, the somewhat forgotten but very entertaining Sneakers. In addition to Poitier, we also discuss the rest of the film’s stacked cast, which includes Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, David Straithairn, River Phoenix, but definitely not David Paymer (though we do talk about him a lot more than you’d expect).
