"I GUESS we’ve been friends for 35 years or more," said Jason Robards. He was sipping black coffee from a very large mug in a very old saloon.
"Oh, longer," said Christopher Plummer, splashing a bit of Poland Spring from the bottle before him into a tumbler.
There was a Pinteresque pause. It was as if they were running lines from a play of their own, not unlike Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land,” the enigmatic drama in which they appear on Broadway. At times, a visitor could even imagine stage directions, pauses and all:
ROBARDS: Right. We go back to the 50’s. Live television.

Cosmo the Dog

Ewan  McGregor was becoming anxious toward the end of production on the comedy-drama “Beginners.” The actor had fallen in love with his co-star, a 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier named Cosmo, and knew their days together would be coming to an end.  

"An actor should be a mystery," says Christopher Plummer. But these days actors must do publicity, he laments — so the popular film and stage actor has agreed to answer numerous questions in a surprisingly candid, honest manner in this 1967 CBC-TV interview. He opens up about his reluctance to star in The Sound of Music, gives his opinion on why actors tend to drink heavily, criticizes Hollywood’s “star system,” and explains why he chose acting over a music career.
