Ed Begley Jr. Talks To Harper Simon about Comedy, Drugs + The Environment

vor 4 Jahren

Ed Begley Jr. joins Talk Show with Harper Simon to talk about Begley Street, Living with Ed, the environment, and the strange and hilarious journey he has had working with Christopher Guest (among many others). We discuss drugs, This is Spinal Tap, Eating Raoul, and the absolutely essential business of environmental action on a personal and global scale in this uncensored episode of Talk Show with Harper Simon.

Inspired by the works of his Academy Award-winning father, Ed Begley Jr. became an actor. He first came to audiences’ attention for his portrayal of Dr. Victor Ehrlich on the long-running hit television series St. Elsewhere, for which he received six Emmy nominations. Since then, Ed has moved easily among feature, television and theatre projects.

He is one of the Governors of the Motion Picture Academy and he lives in a solar-powered home and drives an electric car. Ed and his family are currently documenting construction of a LEED Platinum-certified home for Begley Street, a television and Web series produced by Make It Happen Productions. Both shows are set to launch later this year.
