JAMEY SHERIDAN

Jamie001

Where: his dressing room (Circle In The Square Theatre). 4:15 pm.        One of the great things that I discovered about Jamey Sheridan during our conversation is that he does not have any tolerance for Hollywood-type nonsense like indulging manipulative actors or catering to the lowest common denominator. He will simply...

Tee Hawk Talk Logo

3.24.2021       After doing interviews for over a decade or so, it dawned on me one day that I would inevitably find out that one of the actors I had interviewed had passed away. Never in my most horrific nightmares did I imagine that the first one to leave us would be...

TONY RANDALL

TONY RANDALL

Where: his apartment. 11 am.        Even if I'm at a friend's house, I'm the type of person who feels intrusive and awkward sitting around in someone else's home. So you can imagine how anxious I was when I found out that I had to interview the legend that is Tony...

MALCOLM McDOWELL

MALCOLM McDOWELL

Where: a diner in Chelsea. 5 pm.        It is so ridiculous that some people believe Malcolm McDowell is as violent and insane as many of the characters he has played. Almost everyone who found out that I would be interviewing him had expressed fear and concern. (My favorite overreaction was...

RICHARD PORTNOW

RICHARD PORTNOW

Where: his apartment. 2 pm.        Riding on the uptown #2 train recently, I was not surprised when it stalled at Times Square. This happens quite often. What does not happen quite often is the sight of an actor who has appeared in some of the most successful and critically acclaimed...
