On the Beat with Curtis Armstrong at the Motor City Comic Con 2013

Curtis Armstrong has a lengthy resume.  The man is very successful.  He is also known as "Booger" or as a nerd.  How does that happen?  It happens because of one of his most famous roles.  In Revenge of the Nerds, Curtis played Dudley "Booger" Dawson.
Curtis is definitely not a one-hit wonder though.  He had big roles in Moonlighting, Risky Business, The Closer and more.  Because of his many roles, he is a great convention guest, appealing to many fans of different genres.
Despite his huge popularity, Curtis responded quickly and positively when I contacted him for an interview.  Even more impressive, he did just the same when I met him at his booth.  He held off his fans for a coule minutes while we got the interview done.
I was so impressed with his professionalism, humor and politeness.  Curtis immediately became one of my favorite interview subjects.
This was another of those surreal interviews.  Way back when, I loved Curtis on Moonlighting and Risky Business.  How very cool it was to find out that Curtis was so very cool.  These are the best types of interviews (a longtime favorite who is very gracious in person on and off camera)..
Seriously, meeting Curtis would have been enough reason to attend the MCCC.  To interview him and see how nice he was just made it incredible.
Thanks to Curtis for his time and consideration.  Thanks to the fine folks at the MCCC for making this possible.
After you watch the interview, you can "like" Curtis on Facebook and follow Curtis on twitter.  You can also follow King of the Nerds on twitter.
