Clark Gregg Interview

Sitting down with the director of 'Choke'
Dennis Widmyer
Clark Gregg

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of sitting down with writer, director and actor Clark Gregg. I had expressed interest on the site in interviewing Gregg, and not even minutes later, the wonderful reps at Fox Searchlight were contacting me about it.

For those of you that don't know, Clark Gregg is the writer/director of 'Choke', the new film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's bestselling novel, due to hit theaters this Friday, September 26th. He is a longtime actor who has appeared in such TV and movies as 'In Good Company', 'Iron Man' and the hit show 'The New Adventures of Old Christine'.

His journey to get 'Choke' to the big screen is a long and unique one. Clark was nice enough to take me out for lunch where we sat down for this interview.

CHOKE Movie: The Borders Books & Music Microsite!

This weekend Borders Books and Music hosted a very cool event that I was lucky enough to be at. It was a moderated round table discussion with Chuck Palahniuk, Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell. The questions were good, and the banter between the three men was priceless. They had the audience laughing so hard, people were honestly covering their face and trying to hold back tears.
