For nearly 40 years Ed Solomon has made audiences laugh and wonder through his work as a screenwriter. Initially contributing to scripts to TV classics like Laverne & Shirley and the groundbreaking It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, Solomon experienced global success when he and fellow writer Chris Matheson created the Bill and Ted characters, portrayed by Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves in the films Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, and the recent Bill & Ted Face the Music. Having also written films like Men in Black, Now You See Me (and its sequel), and the new crime thriller No Sudden Move, Solomon has proven himself to be one of the most talented and compelling figures working in Hollywood today.
On the latest episode of The Movies That Made Me (which can be heard above), hosts Josh Olson and Joe Dante are joined by Ed Solomon for an engaging chat about his work and the various projects that have influenced him over the course of his decades-spanning career, and you can see all of these at Movies Unlimited. We think you’ll find it to be a truly excellent experience!
