books; I love most of Barbara Kingsolver‘s books; I love most of Wally Lamb‘s
stuff. I just read ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak. I haven’t read one for a
while, because I’m trying to learn how to write screenplays. Every time I start

Favorite music: “I listen to a lot of kids music these days. There’s this band
called Syd Arthur, super cool jam band. When I was growing up, I was in a band.
We loved old ’70s stuff. The Rolling Stones is a big one. In my 20s, I did the
Black Crowes. I don’t keep up completely with it now.”
Favorite movie: “‘The Deer Hunter,’ because it’s f****** dark!”
