Last week, I participated in the two-and-a-half hour Movie Geeks United! podcast on director Roman Polanski. It was a great discussion as always, and Jerry Dennis (co-host alongside Jamey DuVall) had some very kind things to say in his introduction to my segment. You make me blush, sir. Much obliged. The link to the podcast is here. My contribution begins at 96:30, though do listen to the entire show—Jerry and Jamey worked their butts off on this, and it shows. Here’s more information about the episode from the Blog Talk Radio website:
The Movie Geeks trace the extraordinary life and career of acclaimed filmmaker Roman Polanski with special guests including director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour); Bobbie O’Steen, the wife of Polanski’s late editor Sam O’Steen (Chinatown, Rosemary’s Baby, Frantic); cinematography great William A. Fraker (Rosemary’s Baby); and critic Keith Uhlich. Also featured will be highlights from the Geeks’ January 2008 interview with Marina Zenovich, director of the 2008 docu Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired. During the two-hour special, Ratner—who cast Polanski as a French detective in 2007’s Rush Hour 3—reveals that he’s producing a sequel to Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired. “Marina’s such a brilliant filmmaker…I’m lucky to be working with her,” he tells us, adding: “Because now it’s really more about the outcome of what’s happened since, Roman has agreed to participate.” To read more about Ratner’s take on Polanski, click here.
