Actor-producer-director Griffin Dunne (This Is Us, Dallas
Buyers Club, An American Werewolf in London, My Girl), sits on
the couch for a deep dive!
You'll hear Griffin and me analyze:
- His fascinating family history, including:
- His father, writer Dominick Dunne
- His aunt, writer Joan Didion
- His uncle, writer John Gregory Dunne
- His daughter, actor Hannah Dunne
- His mother, brother, and sister, Dominique Dunne, who was
murdered at age 22 by her boyfriend
- Meeting Janis Joplin at Tom Wolfe's party
- Parties with George Stevens, Jane Fonda, Billy Wilder, Tuesday
Weld, Roddy McDowall + oodles of Hollywood icons
- His friends, like Tony Goldwyn (Scandal, Network) and
Charles Wessler (Green Book)
- His "first," "second" and "third" acts
- His early jobs (waiter! camel feeder!)
- His Oscar date (hint: it's Griffin's "BF")
- Being a father
- His troubles in school
- Domestic violence
- Worrying about things we can't control
- This Is Us
- Martin Scorsese
But I don't want to give it all away!
