Steve Zahn
Episode of
Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson
Steve Zahn (Reality Bites, Friends, That Thing You Do, Sahara, Saving Silverman, Dallas Buyers Club, Suburbia...) is so fun onscreen that he's kinda the best thing about every movie he's in. Or at least every scene. Steve was in town for the Brooklyn Film Festival, where his short film, I'm No Holiday, written and directed by his friend and fellow actor Rick Gomez, was screening. So I met him in Williamsburg. We set up the voice recorder. And later, a camera. (You can see him and me do a funny video with random questions at YouTube.com/reallyfamous.) Here's the result. You'll hear about: He laughs at which movies and TV shows I watched to "research" him How Ben Stiller "discovered" him Reality Bites Friends Shattered Glass Saving Silverman Theater acting Bonding with Ethan Hawke The 5 people he still keeps in touch with, which includes a few phenomenal (and famous) actors The timeless magic of That Thing You Do Tom Hanks Face Deals (stay tuned!) Auditioning The American Repertory Theater, aka The ART Institute at Harvard University Self-tape, or doing auditions at home and uploading them to Vimeo His wife, successful writer Robyn Peterman Social media, marketing and live tweeting Luck vs. hard work Being recognized The White House Correspondents' Dinner Being a farmer Compassion Being real The theater of politicians Beavis and Butthead Mike Judge Bradley Whitford It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Doctor Zhivago Bridge Too Far Quibi EXTRAS See Steve + me being funny + silly in our YouTube video: YouTube.com/reallyfamous Get the Brooklyn Film Festival on your radar and your calendar: BrooklynFilmFestival.org Get ready for the Bonus Episode with Steve Zahn + Rick Gomez: reallyfamouspodcast.com   NEW! ...

We deeply analyze films from The Incredibles to The Godfather Part 2. We talk Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, The Sinner, The Affair, Lost, Get Out. He questions my parenting. (Hint: It has to do with The Shining.) He shares how he met his wife, Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay. We fret over attention spans, iPhones and parenting. We try to get a grip on how planes and phones work. We ponder what to do when you tell yourself, "It's too late." Peter flips the interview back onto me. I give inside scoop on the therapist's perspective - BIG reveals! I also dish on being a writer. # Celebrity interview by Kara Mayer Robinson.
