Episode 8--A Conversation with Jeff BornsteinStories from over 30 years as a Hollywood stuntman, actor, and magician.
My guest today is perhaps one of the most well-rounded performers and entertainers that I know. He's been a stunt man and stunt coordinator, body builder, actor, and producer for approximately 50 different feature films, shorts and television series over the past 30 years. He is also a retired U.S. Army Military Intelligence Communications specialist and and amateur radio (HAM Radio) operator. And if that isn't enough, he is also an award-winning magician, and has performed some 700 shows at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, in addition to completing four world-tours with Armed Forces Entertainment. Sometime in the mid 2000's, he formed an entertainment organization for veterans known as Operation Bravo--an organization that is dedicated to bringing the highest quality of entertainment to the U.S. Armed Forces both local and abroad--Through Operation Bravo he has performed some 500 shows for U.S. Troops, and he has a bazillion challenge coins to prove it!. He's gotten knocked out by Sylvester Stallone, beaten up by Jean-Claude Van Damme, shot at by celebrities and killed on America's Most Wanted, fallen out of buildings, been set on fire, crashed cars on freeways, and has performed a blindfolded mind-reading act for many years with his wonderful and lovely wife Kimberly (originally from Oklahoma), who absolutely steals the show with her incredible southern charm, lightning-quick wit, sense of humor, and mind-reading stunts.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
- what got him started doing stunts professionally in the movie industry
- the time he played softball with the cast of "Happy Days" and his very special encounter with Henry Winkler (a.k.a. "The Fonz")
- his time performing a tour during Operation Iraqi Freedom
- how he was knocked-out cold by Sylvester Stallone while filming a fight scene on a bus for the movie "The Specialist."
- ...and more!
