#22: Mike “Coach” Opalek

Mike Opalek was on the original Senate team, and has performed stunts in such 90s classics as Airborne, Brink, Double Dragon, and Batman and Robin.

From his front porch in Salt Lake City, Mike talks about rollerblading in the movie industry, being a blade coach, and, of course, making whiskey and beer. We end by hashing out possible plot points in the script for Airborne II and whether or not it could ever get made.

The alternate title to this podcast would have been “Ice Thug Life with Mike Opalek,” but we’re better than that.

Follow Mike on Instagram. He’s @opalek.
