Auteur Watch - Roy Campanella II

Well, the Hollywood Campanella dynasty is still going strong.  Maybe not as high-profile as Zanuck, sure, but you get a better class of groupies that way.  Well, now that Roy the Second has achieved his goal of directing one episode of every great television show of the last 30 years, he finally decided: why not give the ol' silver screen a try this time?  That's where The Company We Keep comes in, as opposed to Robert Redford's The Company You Keep, which he decided to make after he saw Running on Empty one night on TV.  I'm just kidding, of course; they're never ever going to show Running on Empty on TV ever again.  But there's one thing we can all agree on: Shia LaBeouf's a little brat who's too much of an A-Lister to start robbing banks.  But who knows?  Maybe the right role will come along and he'll want to give it a try.  You know, "research" the part.
Anyway, back to the instant case.  Let's see how Roy is connected to Spielberg.  Let me just check my output here...

Okay, Roy directed a couple episodes of a show called "Hooperman"
which also featured... DAVID SPIELBERG????!!!!!!!!!!!... ah, close enough.
