Chuck Woolery Interview


Mr. Woolery’s second act (or third, if you count his short-lived singing career, in which he tried psychedelic pop and covered “Delta Dawn”), sure shocked me when I recently stumbled across his “Blunt Force Truth” podcast. The new Mr. Woolery, who some may remember as the original host of “Wheel of Fortune,” is a firebrand who takes particular delight in fricasseeing liberal celebrities.

Forget about buying a vowel. As Mr. Woolery said recently about movie stars who have protested President Trump: “You couldn’t find a group outside of an insane asylum more detached from reality than actors. Why would people want to take advice from a group of people who pretend to be other people for a living?”

The 75-year-old Mr. Woolery may have slipped from some of our minds since his days gently guiding “Scrabble” players through that odd tile-dropping process. (“Connie from Cleveland, back to defend her crown!”) But he has not exactly been hiding.

Had I been watching more Fox News last fall — oh, fine: any Fox News — I might have seen him chatting with Tucker Carlson about his support for the Republican presidential ticket. (“I will pray that Mike Pence will have a great impression on Donald Trump and make him more conservative,” Mr. Woolery said in one appearance.) “Blunt Force Truth,” which Mr. Woolery hosts with a like-minded friend, Mark Young, has been around since late 2014, at times rising to the Top 10 on the podcast charts.

But wrapped in the ultraliberal cocoon that is moviedom, with social media feeds filled with producers rhapsodizing in unison about Democratic politicians and seemingly every television tuned to CNN or MSNBC, it was easy to not notice him.

Had Mr. Trump not won the election, Hollywood could have continued to ignore Mr. Woolery and Mr. Young, 59, as two more pontificating cranks: Ho-hum, and back to NPR. It seems foolhardy to treat them that way now. Perhaps if the entertainment industry had paid attention earlier to the Chuck Woolerys in its midst, it might not have been blindsided by the election outcome, which seemed on the Left Coast to simply be a formality preceding the installation of Hillary Clinton.

Hollywood has the awesome power to speak without being interrupted. Maybe people here do need to spend more time listening.
