I think "Inside the Actor's Studio" is one of the most self-congratulatory, obnoxiously pretentious shows ever created. But, I confess that in my more messianic moments, I dream of being fawned over and blown by James Lipton. I have had this dream so many times that I have come up with answers to the questions first made famous by Bernard Pivot and stolen by "Soupy":
What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
What turns you off creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
What sound or noise do you love?
The purring of my cat.
What sound or noise do you hate?
The screech of an animal suffering.
What is your favorite curse word?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to do?
King Crab fisherman; those guys on "Deadliest Catch" are nuts.
If Heaven exists, what you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
"Welcome to Heaven, what would you like to know?"
