This week, we are lucky enough to bring you a long interview with the lovely Lisa Lackey. (Alliteration rules!) Lackey plays Janice Parkman, the wife and baby momma of the mind reading Matt Parkman on Heroes.
I highly recommend checking out the interview, even if you aren’t a fan of Heroes. Lackey is incredibly charming. She also does a great job clarifying some common misconceptions about Australians and even provides an interesting theory on why Heroes’ ratings have struggled lately. It’s a very entertaining read.
Of course, all of the content on the site is great this week. Seriously, HoboTrashcan is awesome. You should read every word. (At least, that’s my completely unbiased opinion.)
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
One on One with Lisa Lackey
In a world of superheroes, it’s tough to be an average citizen stuck at home caring for your superbaby, especially when your mind reading husband is still harboring resentment over the fact that you slept with his partner. All that aside, Janice Parkman does her best to keep her chin up and roll with the punches.
Playing Mrs. Parkman on the hit show Heroes is Lisa Lackey, an Australian actor who has been trying to balance her profession with raising a family of her own. We recently talked to Lackey about working on Heroes, accidentally serenading David Lynch and how being Australian is nothing like what you’ve seen on TV.

This week, they return with answers. Joel is too distraught to recount the details of their time away from the show, so it is up to Lars to fill you all in on the specifics of their harrowing story. It’s an amazing tale, one filled with heartache, pain, self-discovery and ultimately redemption. We promise you won’t want to miss it.
What is this amazing story? How will Darren Aranofsky make one of our adolescent fantasies come true? Is Batman: Arkham Asylum the greatest video game ever made? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
