PUBLIC VERSION. Keith Gordon began his career as an actor (CHRISTINE, BACK TO SCHOOL, JAWS 2, THE LEGEND OF BILLIE JEAN, ALL THAT JAZZ) before stepping behind the camera as a director (A MIDNIGHT CLEAR, WAKING THE DEAD, THE SINGING DETECTIVE, TV’s FARGO, DEXTER, NURSE JACKIE, HOMELAND). In this fantastic conversation, Keith sits down with Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey from being discovered in a drama program… to finding himself on the tumultuous (but amazing) set of JAWS 2… to acting for legendary directors like Bob Fosse, Brian De Palma, and John Carpenter… to observing the post-production process by sitting in on editing sessions for some of the films he was in… to making the jump behind the camera… to working steadily as a feature film and television director… to what he has been watching throughout the pandemic… to how he’s coping with the current state of the world.
Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” for a patient dealing with a tricky home life situation and Keith explains how his most triumphant and accomplished moment wound up turning into one of the darkest points in his life’s journey so far. There’s no way you won’t absolutely love this phenomenally candid episode with one of the industry’s true veteran talents!
