'Glee' actor bringing radio show, film to Twin Cities


Veteran actor Stephen Tobolowsky is coming to St. Paul to tape an episode of his syndicated radio show and podcast, the Pioneer Press reports.

Toblowsky, who plays the glee club teacher Matthew Morrison's character replaced on the hit Fox series "Glee," will record "The Toblowsky Files" at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul Oct. 10.

The show features Tobolowsky telling stories of Hollywood, life and love, the Pioneer Press says.

Tickets for the show are $25.

Toblowsky will also appear at the Walker Art Center Oct. 9 to present one of his most beloved films -- 1986's "True Stories" -- at the Walker Cinema.

The actor co-wrote the film with director-star David Byrne (of The Talking Heads) and Beth Henley ("Crimes of the Heart").

Tickets to the Walker event are $12 for the general public and $10 for members.

Tobolowsky has appeared in dozens of films and televisions shows since the early 1980s, most recently in the shows "The Mindy Project," "Justified" and "Californication."

His film credits include such hits as "Memento," "Wild Hogs" and "Groundhog Day."
