1. You're in a bar. Out of nowhere, George Clooney appears beside you, hurriedly (conspiratorially) requesting you give him all your clothes & money, no questions asked, right now. What do you do, and why?
Tell him to sod off. Basically because it would make me look small and stupid if I acquiesced.
2. What's the best thing you've read lately, and why?
Philip Roth's "American Pastoral". Beautifully written with forensic like detail. I liked how the book questioned your assumptions about what was real and what was fictionalised through the narrator. Bizarre ending though.
3. If you had to do a remake of any movie, what would it be, and who would you cast?
Silver Linings Playbook. I would cast Matt Le Blanc as Pat but he would have to act exactly like Joey from "Friends". Tiffany would be played by Kiera Knightley and she would have to act exactly like her deranged character from " A Dangerous Method". Pat's father would be played by Robert De Niro again but he would have to act exactly like his character from "Casino". The whole film would hopefully be a confusing mix of stupid over the top romcom and gritty over the top drama. I might actually enjoy the film then.
4. You've just woken up from a nightmare in cold sweats. It was about the worst Saturday you could possibly have. What happened?
I gave all my clothes and money to George Clooney with no questions asked. He then tried to take advantage of me.
