Salon Talks: John Lithgow
Actor John Lithgow, who took home the 2017 Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Winston Churchill in the Netflix series "The Crown," stopped by "Salon Talks" to discuss his role in "Beatriz at Dinner," longevity in the film industry and the craft of acting.
Director Miguel Arteta joined Lithgow to unpack the story of "Beatriz at Dinner," which centers around Beatriz (Salma Hayek), an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, who draws on her innate kindness to build a career as a health practitioner in Los Angeles. Her world collides at a dinner party with Lithgow's character, Doug, a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire.
Tony Award winner Lithgow is currently on Broadway with his solo show “Stories By Heart." Tune into SalonTV's live shows, "Salon Talks" and "Salon Stage", daily at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, streaming live on Salon, Facebook and Periscope.
