Former "Almost Live" cast member Bob Nelson joined Margaret to talk about his latest project, the new film "Nebraska," starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte. Academy Award winning director Alexander Payne ("Sideways," "The Descendants") directed the film, which stems from an original screenplay written by Bob. "Nebraska" was nominated for the Palme D'or Prize, and Bruce Dern received Best Actor honors at the Cannes Film Festival over the summer.

In addition to chatting about the film (in which his mother makes a cameo!), Bob chatted about his days with "Almost Live," and we shared a clip of one of Bob's favorite skits, which features him as a slow talking baseball announcer pitted against Seattle Mariners' announcers Rick Rizzs and the legendary Dave Niehaus. Watch the entire skit here.
