We said literate – as in, well, whatever the definition of literate is.
Among the guests “booked” on tonight’s Mix are two bestselling novelists, one comedian who’s a newbie author, one director whose latest flick is based on a hit play, one beloved mythical character reading aloud and one British actor chatting about the screenplay for his latest star vehicle.
More specifically, the show answers such all-important questions as:
—While researching a long Esquire magazine profile on Frank Sinatra, why Gay Talese (right) didn’t think it was all that important to interview the legendary crooner himself.
—Which little-known Christmas tale Santa Claus chose to officially kick off the holiday season.
—How the script for Nobel Son led star Alan Rickman to order a set of crooked teeth from his dentist.
—Why David Baldacci is “terrified” that Uncle Sam has enlisted his help to thwart terror attacks on U.S. soil.
—How a homicidal inmate prompted Kevin Nealon to sire his first child.
—Why Ron Howard insisted that Oliver Platt hold nothing back while impersonating Richard Nixon in the new flick, Frost/Nixon.
So don’t miss The Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!
