I recently sat down with Crispin Glover to talk about his one-man vaudevillian show, his many books and illustrations, the current two entries in his self-financed IT trilogy (which he also partly wrote, directed, edited, and starred in), and his eclectic, genre bending filmography that spans almost 60 films.
Well, I should clarify...I know for certain that I was sitting when I typed the questions and sent them to him using this quaint little invention known as email...and I can only assume that he too was sitting when he typed his answers and sent them back to me (coincidentally also using email).
Being that this is the second time I have interviewed the renaissance man, I am without a doubt that he is one of the nicest gentleman I have ever had the pleasure of conversing with. For proof of this, attend Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show (which you can absolutely do tonight or tomorrow night if you are in the DFW area). I am also equally certain that he is in fact a genius. For proof of this, get absorbed in the following interview (something you will definitely want to do if you are interested at all in the independent, self-financing of films). (more...)
