I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing several well-respected actors, directors and writers over the last 15 years. Because I deal primarily in print and online, however, most of those interviews were simply transcribed for written articles, such as my chats with John Carpenter, Stanley Tucci, Diane Lane, Heather Wahlquist, Pam Grier, Steve Guttenberg, Virginia Madsen, Blake Jenner, writer-director Shawn Snyder and animator Lynn Tomlinson. But some have been preserved in audio or video format, and I present a handful of my favorites here. The Sam Rockwell and Bob Balaban videos were shot by Liam Malone while the Sissy Spacek film was shot by Liv Jones.
