Director, Mike, Chuck discussed on Off Camera with Sam Jones - 114. Mike White


Hey folks sam jones here welcome to another edition of offcamera the show i get to talk to iconic creative curious artists and find out how they got that way and this episode i sit down with screenwriter actor director and producer my quite i found him outside on the sidewalk and brought him in for a chat mike admits his ambitious he also admits he finds that ambition embarrassing be that as it may it's fueled some of my favorite movies and tv shows of the last two decades including chuck and buck the good girl school of rock enlightened and be a trusted dinner is newest brad status starts bins diller it's about a guy with a good career and a happy family the who's still obsessed with the better fortunes of his france what amazed me about the film is mike's uncanny talent for sucking us right into the conversations that are happening in bradley and it's not long before we realise that they bear more than a passing resemblance to the conversations happening inside our own head which would be pretty funny if they weren't also tab pathetic if mike is a product of hollywood angst he's also one of its sharpest funniest observers in this episode he talks about where his ideas come from his writing process and why he might just rather take naps for the rest of his life and i was surprised to hear him speak so candidly about the brutal realities of the business that he is in we also talked about the pitfalls of comparing ourselves to others then why we can't stop doing and mike wonders if it's possible for him to succeed in this town and still be the cool human he wants to be well i think our conversation answers that question.
