Most of you probably know Vince Van Patten as the youngest son of Eight is Enough star Dick Van Patten, as well as a very successful actor in his own right and the longtime host of The World Poker Tour on Fox Sports 1. Some of you probably remember Vince as one of the best tennis professionals throughout the ’70s and ’80s, beating the likes of John McEnroe, Ilie Nastase, and Vitas Gerulitas and ranking 25th among the top tennis players in the world at the peak of his powers. What you may not know is that Vince Van Patten is also a world class poker player—having developed a passion for the game at a very young age, with the help and encouragement of his father.
Vince’s knowledge of the game is at the heart of 7 Days to Vegas, a new comedy about the world of professional poker players and the often crazy wagers that they make among each other that is also based on a true story: the time that Vince found himself having to walk to Las Vegas from his home in the San Fernando Valley as a result of losing a bet. 7 Days to Vegas premiered earlier this year to rave reviews at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. RiotMaterial.com calls the movie “pure comic genius,” while Vince himself describes 7 Days to Vegas as “The Hangover Meets The Sting.” Vince Van Patten will join us in our second hour.
7 Days to Vegas will be released in select theaters beginning Friday, Sept. 20. The movie will then become available for viewing on demand on iTunes and Amazon beginning Tuesday, Sept. 24. For more information, go to 7DaystoVegas.com or ClubWPT.com.
Our first hour will include a conversation with Laura Niemi, the actress who plays Milo Ventimiglia’s mom, Marilyn Pearson, on the hit NBC series This Is Us—the No. 1 show on any broadcast or cable network in the all-important 18-49 demo, and the No. 2-ranked dramatic series in total viewership. Season Four of This Is Us begins Tuesday, Sept. 24 on NBC, while the network announced earlier this year that it has renewed This is Us for an additional two seasons. We’ll talk about that, plus we’ll ask Laura about working with Oscar winner Anne Hathaway in the upcoming Netflix movie, The Last Thing He Wanted, her background in theatre and the performance rock band Spork, and more.
Also this week: Lynette Rice, editor at large for Entertainment Weekly, will join us in our first hour with some recommendations on which shows to watch this fall season on network TV, cable, and the various streaming platforms.
