Love Kevin Kline (obviously he was saving his voice after the umpteenth i-view).

Just watched "The Extra Man" on streaming netflix -- OMFG LAO

A very snoozy interview with the normally ebullient Kline.

Did anyone happen to catch an ad about an upcoming lecture on bio-gating mechanism (potassium/sodium?) from this segment?

Queen to Play is probably a reference to the terms used in the composition of chess problems: "white (or black) to play and win/draw"

ALTHOUGH I GREATLY ADMIRE KEVIN KLINE ACTING IN BOTH STAGE AND FILM, I FOUND HIM TO BE BOTH OBNOXIOUS AND CONDESCENDING.
ANYONE AGREE OR DISAGREE??

The first play in which I saw Kevin Kline was Prometheus Bound, by Aeschylus on the Indiana University Theatre Department state in 1969. He was not only excellent, even then, the costume they made him ware (a gold lame jockstrap) proved he was a fearless actor even at the beginning...as his excursion into foreign language acting bears out

I loved Kevin Kline, especially his most memorable (at least to me) role in a "Fish Called Wanda" with the Monty Python guys. I think he should have done more to exploit his comedic talent so beautifully exhibited in that role.
