Today's Guest: Bob Balaban, actor Close Encounters of the Third Kind, "Seinfeld," Bernard and Doris No matter what role he’s in, Bob Balaban always makes an impression, from Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind to playing the President of NBC on “Seinfeld.” And the same is was true of his work as a director, which you can discover in Bernard and Doris, starring Susan Sarandon and Ralph Fiennes. (Currently, he is appearing in "Condor" on the Audience Network.) Bob...

Today's Guest: Joe Pistone, former FBI agent, author, Donnie Brasco: Unfinished Business My favorite book in the 1970s was Serpico by Peter Maas, the story of a New York City cop who seemingly single-handedly fought the force of corruption in the city’s police department. I read all the books of that genre in that era, from Supercops to The Valachi Papers and The French Connection. One of the most fascinating parts of those works was always the tales of cops who went undercover to...

Today's Guest: Joey Luthaman, actor, "Weeds, "An American Carol" I hate it when people confuse actors with the characters they play. For example, just because 11-year-old Joey Luthman appears on the Showtime sitcom “Weeds” doesn’t mean he’s a pothead. At least I hope not! And just because he has a role in the new movie An American Carol alongside Kelsey Grammer, Leslie Nielsen, Dennis Hoppe and James Woods doesn’t mean he’s a conservative right-winger. Not that there’s anything wrong with...
