Paul Giamatti, whose stage credits include the 1999 Kevin Spacey revival of The Iceman Cometh and the 1997 revival of Three Sisters as well as Racing Demon and Arcadia, will be on hand to discuss his latest film role. Giamatti can currently be seen in M. Night Shyamalan’s "Lady in the Water," which casts the actor as "a seemingly ordinary man who is thrown into extraordinary circumstances when he discovers a mysterious nymph like creature - played by Bryce Dallas Howard - living in the tunnels beneath his housing complex’s swimming pool."
Frank McCourt, who penned the revue The Irish...and How They Got That Way and who received a Pulitzer Prize for his novel “Angela’s Ashes,” will chat about his latest book, “Teacher Man.” In the new tome McCourt writes about his 30-year teaching career and "records the trials, triumphs and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City."
Marshall Brickman, who wrote for Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett, will discuss his latest success, Jersey Boys. Brickman co-wrote the book for the Tony-winning musical, which is currently playing to sold-out crowds at the August Wilson Theatre.
The two-hour broadcast will also feature segments about rocker David Lee Roth, country singer Clint Black, writer-director Robert Towne and Grammy-nominated sitarist Anoushka Shankar.
