Last spring, listeners heard host Christopher O’Riley tell 15-year-old cellist Aaron Wolff from Newton, MA “I hate you!” He didn’t actually mean it. But he was confessing¬† that he was seriously jealous that Aaron Wolff would be appearing in the latest feature film from the Coen brothers. Aaron plays Danny Gopnik, the son of a Minnesota physics professor Larry Gopnik (played by Michael Stuhlbarg) in “A Serious Man”, out in theaters today.

Aaron said on our show about his first audition, “There were around 1000 kids in an auditorium, and this woman got up on a stage and pointed right at me and said, ‘I want you!'”
