Watching James Lipton host "Inside The Actors' Studio" was, as he would say, "a deliiiight!"
Show was about craft of acting, but Lipton put on a Master Class for interviewers as well. Always prepared, always authentic, and never made it about himself. Bravo, Sir.
RIP Jim Bouton. Read "Ball Four" the summer after 7th Grade. One of a handful of books I've read in my lifetime that truly changed my perspective on things. Kinda like when William first heard The Who in "Almost Famous."
Jim Bouton was a pariah for many years after "Ball Four." For context, it was as if he made a political statement with every bat flip. Was glad he was finally invited back to Yankees' Old-Timers Day. 2018: https://t.co/6CDIwwv2ra 1998: https://t.co/vPcpGhjKgB
