Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Aug 28, 2019

Actor + director Timothy Busfield stops by to have a chat about, oh, EVERYTHING. Like:

  • The West Wing
  • Designated Survivor
  • This Is Us
  • thirtysomething
  • Field of Dreams
  • His wife, Melissa Gilbert
  • Acting and directing
  • Going to the movies
  • Growing up
  • Parenting
  • Alcoholism
  • And so much more.

Love movies and television? You'll dig this episode!

It's like a MASTER CLASS.

You’ll learn ins and outs of acting, actors, directing, directors, scripts, dialogue and elements of a successful TV show or movie. 

Tim also gets personal - about his father’s rejection, his mother’s alcoholism, and how much he adores being a parent and now a grandfather. This is me, after all. How could I not get personal?!?

By the end of our intimate interview, you'll feel like you know Tim personally.
