The Complete Works: Roy Scheider

The Complete Works is a podcast dedicated to exploring an actor's filmography, one movie at a time - assessing the highs and lows of their career and how it reflects the film industry at large. Currently in Season 3, we're now discussing every single movie (and some of the TV) featuring Hong Kong superstar-turned-international phenomenon, Michelle Yeoh.

Past seasons of the podcast include Nicolas Cage and Jeff Goldblum, and bonus episodes for them will be made as they come out with new projects.
