Chuck Palahniuk is in the new October issue of Paste magazine:
Just like the news title says: We Need Everyone To See CHOKE This Weekend! If you planned on seeing it during the week, or even waiting to next weekend, or a couple weekends after that... don't.
We need you to see CHOKE this weekend. Now even. As soon as you're done with reading this, grab some friends, get your ticket, and head to the nearest theater showing it. (listings here)
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.
Jenni Miller, a senior editor with Premiere.com, was at the press day for CHOKE in NYC and had a chance to interview Chuck Palahniuk.

This was recorded from Borders 1, while in Ann Arbor, MI, for Chuck's 'Snuff' tour. Chuck explains how to prevent stock shrinkage by teaching fans the best books to steal! Hysterical.
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.
