The Bastion calls our attention to an interview with Alan Arkin on Fresh Air. Arkin was a very early member of The Second City. He’s gotten some (deserved) shine for his wonderful performance in the slightly hoaky but very funny Little Miss Sunshine. On the same show is a great old interview with Damon Wayans, who is a really interesting guy, despite his missteps.
Also, last week John C. Reilly returned to Fresh Air, and demonstrated that he is pretty much as good a guy as you could possibly hope.
And hey, did you read the AV Club’s interview with Arkin? He seriously co-wrote “The Banana Boat Song?”
