Spotlight on IFC’s Bob Scheer

Bob’s back with us this season, and here’s your chance to find out what his ‘wicked’est dreams are!

What are two of your favourite possessions?
The boxed set of all the L Frank Baum Wizard of Oz novels (and the ones written by his family after he died) that I am going to find and buy and the copy of ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ on DVD I am also going to buy.

If you could choose one completely impractical dream to follow for the rest of your life, what would it be?
To bribe my way into the chorus of ‘Wicked’ and travel the world performing the show.

If you had a world-class chef make you any dish you want, what would it be?
A truffle omelette. Simple, yes, but with something I would love to taste as well. Such a beautiful art to omelettes!

You’re being sent to a deserted island for five years, and you can only bring three music albums to listen to. Which three would they be?
The Best of Bach, Wicked Soundtrack, any album by Tina Arena.

What’s always in your fridge, aside from ice and water?
Ginger, Brie cheese and eggs.

Who’s the one person with whom you’d want to be stuck in an elevator?
Liam Neeson.

Many of us had posters of celebrities on our walls when we were teenagers. What’s the most embarrassing one you’ve ever had — the one that makes you cringe now?
Portrait photos of The Bay City Rollers. They were my sisters’ posters on their bedroom wall but I kept going in and looking. Not a good sign!
