John Black and I interview Tom McCarthy, writer and director of Win Win. We discuss McCarthy’s inspiration for Win Win, Harold Becker’s 1985 film Vision Quest (Believe it or not, Win Win and Vision Quest are directly related); as well as the representative meanings of Win Win‘s characters, played by Paul Giamatti, Bobby Cannavale, Amy Ryan, Alex Shaffer and the irreplaceable Burt Young, co-star of the Rocky films.
The intro and outro was recorded at Panera Bread next to the Regal Fenway 13 theater in Boston.
The interview runs approximately 23 minutes.
