Rob Parker - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #131

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME TO 2017!!! Happy new year to all Distraction Pieces crew (and non-crew, it's all love this year), we hope you had a phenomenal start to it all and saw off the remainder of last year's mayhem and carnage appropriately. Here's to the goodness and greatness ahead for all!

SPEAKING OF WHICH... Here's a proper slice of Distraction Pieces Podcast confection for your ears, featuring very special guest Rob Parker! Maybe you know him... It's possible you don't... Nevertheless - prepare to make a new friend in this professional rugby player-turned-actor, as he gives you the full - the VERY full - scoop on everything Rob, from his upbringing right on through to the present day, where you will find him co-starring with your vibrant host Mr Scroobius Pip (and acting titanium Tom Hardy and Stephen Graham) in the upcoming 'Taboo'!

A fascinating rundown, ranging from how he made it into the world of pro-sports via an award-winning and braggadocios schoolmate, his biking interests which date back to when he was but a three year old, all with the through line of his admirable and inspiration commitment to work and all round work ethic, down to sleeping in his car on the way to acting spots just to get the job done. Not only that, but tons more nuggets and jewels in this wide ranging and uplifting conversation, which also breaks down his heavy addiction to painkillers and how he dragged himself through it all, and rounding off wonderfully with a killer tale of how he actually made it to the screen in the first place... You will be sticking around for that for real... ENJOY!!!
