Giant Bomb Presents: An Intimate Sit-Down With John Vignocchi

We linked up with Disney's John G. Vignocchi a few weeks ago to cover Infinity's long road, what he thinks about the next Star Wars movie, some stuff about Tron, Metal Gear Solid V, and the weirdest thing that happened to him during the development of NBA Ballers.

Giant Bomb Presents is giantbomb.com's home for interviews, previews, and more.

Oct. 22 2015

Posted by: Jeff

Episode Notes:

Johnny V came through back in September to talk about life, Infinity, and the aftermath of his E3 2015 appearance.

Awww, he is sober. That final wrap up of last year was hilarious. Is that an annual thing? Are we going to see Lang and Vignocci get into it again this year? Was rather surprised Jeff didn't touch on that even much on any of the podcasts much.

Always happy to hear from Juanny V. Glad he's doing so well for himself at Disney, I always felt like him being at midway was like that really good kid in school that fell in with the wrong crowd.

No room for sensitivity and feelings surrounded by those dirtbags.

Having only seen/listened to him a couple times, Vignocchi is high on my list of people I'd like to meet/hang with. Seem's like a stellar guy.

This is the most on-topic discussion about Disney Infinity I've ever heard on this website. Props to Johnny V, dude is making it happen, even if what he is making happens to be toys for kids.

@danterion: about the 1 hour mark I think. It's like a minute, maybe less.
