Guest Picks: Garry Marshall

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Producer, director, writer, and actor Garry Marshall stopped by to reminisce about his long career. He shared a few of his favorite things with us.

What have you read or seen over the past year (book, play, film, etc…) that moved or surprised you?

        I just re-watched Barry Levinson's movie "Diner," which I loved. Also the play "War Horse" was great.


What are you listening to right now?

        Scott Simon's Weekend Edition.


What’s the last great book you read?

        I am reading Anna Karenina and 50 Shades of Grey both now. I'm trying to see why they are both hits. Also I recently read "Two Gentlemen of Verona" (by Shakespeare).


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?

          Opera and lacrosse.


What’s your favorite comfort food?

        Frozen yogurt. And spaghetti with Campbell's soup on top.
