American Splendor scene #30 (1:37:31 to 1:41:08) — As the credits roll, Josh & Dean reflect on all things Pekar/American Splendor. What should have been the film’s post-credit sequence? What would an American Splendor TV show look like? (Dino keeps coming back to Louis C.K.)
Josh & Dean chat with Toby Radloff, a key figure in both American Splendor the comic and the movie. (Josh illustrated a couple of Toby Radloff stories.) Toby talks about working with Harvey Pekar at the VA Hospital, what the job of a file clerk was, and hanging with Harvey on weekends. He discusses what it felt like to be a character in American Splendor, and his "delusions of grandeur" after appearing on MTV and in the Killer Nerd films. Toby weighs in on his favorite moments in the film and Judah Friedlander's portrayal of him. The interview concludes with Toby's touching tribute to Harvey, and a mention of the various Cleveland monuments to Pekar's legacy.
