The guest contestant on this week's 'Not My Job' segment of Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is composer Michael Giacchino. His interview with host Peter Sagal is pretty straight forward on the surface since they pretty much just talk about the details of his career -- but it's quite wonderful and fascinating for that (not to mention extremely personable) because the credits of his career that they talk about include the scores to such movies as Star Wars: Rogue One (the first person to write the music for a Star Wars movie who wasn’t John Williams), Up (for which he won an Oscar), and Ratatouille, along with many television series like Lost, Alias and Fringe, and the highly-popular video game series "Medal of Honor" and "Call of Duty."
