Ep. 4 Dennis Hopper - Part 1

10/18/2019
More
The Hollywood landscape is littered with tragedies, broken promise and self-destruction. Many promising artists stumble once and never recover from that initial fall. In the history of American film, there has never been a phoenix-like story of survival and rebirth quite like that of Dennis Hopper. Surrounded by some of the film, art and political world’s most significant players: James Dean, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Martin Luther King, Marlon Brando, John Wayne, Miles Davis, and...

Ep. 3 Patrick Swayze

9/15/2019
More
Patrick Swayze passed ten years ago today, September 14, 2009, at age 57. Of the over 600 people I've interviewed since 1996, Patrick was, by far, the nicest. A real person. No pretense.

Our chat on the phone became one of the great conversations, and personal connections, of my life. Most journalists avoid “phoners” whenever possible,...

Ep. 1 Sidney Lumet

More
Sidney Lumet was the first director I interviewed whose one-sheet posters hung on my wall as a kid. He was an idol, an icon, and an inspiration. I wasn't yet 30 in April 1997, when I met him at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills for our interview at the press junket for "Night Falls On Manhattan," one of his solid, authentic urban dramas that blended crime, politics and personal revelations that became his signature. Lumet's body of work is one that will carry on for the ages, and...
