Cartoonist John Callahan / Remembering Actor Tab Hunter

Cartoonist John Callahan was a paraplegic and recovered alcoholic who poked fun at people like himself. He died in 2010; the film 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot,' starring Joaquin Phoenix is based his life. He spoke with Terry Gross in '89 and '91. Also, we remember 1950's Hollywood heartthrob Tab Hunter, who died Sunday. He made more than 50 films, including 'Damn Yankees,' 'Battle Cry' and 'That Kind of Woman,' before coming out as gay later in life. He spoke to 'Fresh Air' in 2005. Finally, film critic Justin Chang reviews the new movie 'Eighth Grade,' directed by Bo Burnham.
