Claire Danes remembers My So-Called Life
This week, we’re throwing it back to one of our most popular releases: My So-Called Life, the series by Winnie Holzman, Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, starring Claire Danes in her breakout role as Angela Chase; the 15-year old who was head-over-heels in love with the high school’s relatively bad boy, Jordan Catalano; played by Jared Leto. The show was a cult hit, but mostly after it had already been cancelled by ABC and was in reruns on MTV. In this episode, we learn about Claire's history with acting; that she was even younger than her 15-year-old character; and all about those make-out scenes with Jared Leto!

Harlan Ellison and L.Q. Jones discuss A Boy and His Dog
Last Thursday, it was announced that the prolific and iconic writer Harlan Ellison had passed away at the age of 84. Throughout this life, he wrote nearly two thousand works, including novels, short stories, essays, screenplays, comic books and teleplays—including Star Trek’s “City on the Edge of Forever.” This conversation between Harlan and L.Q. Jones, the co-writer and director of the film based on one of Harlan’s all-time greatest works, A Boy and His Dog, is definitely one for the books, as Harlan discusses his distrust of Hollywood, the only time he suffered from writer’s block, famous filmmakers who lifted from his work and what it would’ve taken to get Harlan on their side, and what L.Q. got right (and wrong) with A Boy and His Dog. This is a long one, but it’s worth every minute.

Mel Brooks remembers Brooksfilms
Mel Brooks' name is synonymous with "comedy," but, as it turns out, that's only because movies with his name couldn't be taken seriously, if they were anything but funny. It's a shame, because Brooksfilms turned out some wonderful dramatic fare that Mel wasn't allowed to flaunt publicly, out of fear that they wouldn't do well at the box office. In this roundtable discussion with producer Jonathan Sanger and Brooksfilms development exec Randy Auerbach, Mel discusses the films he made "in secret;" including The Elephant Man, The Doctor and the Devils, and Solarbabies.

Hal Holbrook boldly recalls The Senator
Hal Holbrook, star of stage and screens of all sizes, gives one of the most powerfully insightful, raw and passionate interviews we've ever presented on Shout!Takes, as he discusses his memorable nine-episode series, The Senator. Decades before Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing, The Senator dramatized the work of an idealistic U.S. politician and introduced America to social, economic and environmental topics rarely--if ever--addressed on television. The series won a Golden Globe and five Emmys (of its nine nominations); one of them going to Holbrook for his role as Senator Hays Stowe.
