This is an older "Not My Job" segment from 2010 out of the archives of the NPR quiz show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! Peter Sagal's guest is Tony Shaloub, from such series as, Monk and Wings, and the movie Big Night. It's a charming conversation, and particularly enjoyable as he discusses his penchant for playing...well, not normal characters and talks about his brother the inventor.
There's sort of a fun postscript to the episode. In the interview, Shaloub talks about his brother who invented a particular product. (I don't want to give it away.) Well...about three weeks ago, I was watching a rerun of Monk (it was the episode where the character has to adopt a lost dog, which plays into the plot, for those of you who watch reruns, as well...) -- and his assistant brings up the product! It's easy to tell since, as you'll hear, the product has a very offbeat name and use.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
