Busy Philipps and Adam Braun On How Social Media Pushed Trayvon Martin Into National Spotlight

  • Cougar Town's Busy Philipps and Adam Braun of Pencils of Promise joined us today for our real-time conversation and talked about the Trayvon Martin tragedy, how Hunger Games is more offensive than Bully, and social networking for the deceased. Plus, we talked to Charlotte Hill from

    At 3:56, when asked if she's ever going to do a movie with her best friend Michelle Williams, Busy said...

    My husband is a screenwriter, so we've been bugging him and his writing partner to write a movie for the two of us to star in and Harvey Weinstein already said he was going to produce it, so we just got to get it going.

    Go to check 4:44 to check out our conversation about how social media helped the Trayvon Martin story gain momentum.

    Both Adam and Busy think that social media definitely contributed to Trayvon Martin becoming a huge national story.

    "People catch a glimpse of what actually occurred and just kinda put a stamp on it," Adam said.

    At 13:28, they talked about the new movie Bully and how it should be seen by all. Busy:

    "I think that the Hunger Games about kids having to kill for food is more questionable in content than a movie about an epidemic that is plaguing our nation's kids."

    Finally at 20:00, they chatted about deadsoc.ial and if they agreed with social networking for the deceased. Said Adam,
    "I think it's very creepy, personally...Because of the baby boomers, there's going to be more people who die in the next 20 years than ever before. So, there's a whole industry around that now."
