Episode #1 – Conversation with Hollywood Actor and Director- Phill Lewis

I could not be prouder to announce my very first guest on my new podcast launching on Monday, March 4th will be my incredibly talented, insightful, and sometimes funny, my son Phill Lewis.

Phill is an actor, director, and best known for his role as Mr. Moseby on the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and its spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck. Phill has also made appearances on popular TV shows such as Lizzie McGuire, Friends, The Wayans Bros, and Scrubs.
