"Raising Hope" star Lucas Neff will be heard voicing Arlo in the animated Pixar film "The Good Dinosaur" (slated for release next year). But as his series comes to a close, he chats with me about some of his favorite travels, including a childhood trip to Beijing for a baseball tournament:
"Since I was unequivocally the worst player on the team, I spent the grand majority of the trip riding the bench, which broke my competitive little heart. But it was still a fairly revelatory experience. We climbed the Great Wall, went to the Forbidden City, checked out the Summer Palace and bought battle axes from desperate, sweating peddlers in Silk Alley for pennies on the dollar. Some of the boys shattered the revolving door at the hotel, and I bought a laser pointer. Ah, memories."
