A I just got infuriated about the TV series. It was the opposite of what the sensibility was of the film. It became a racist, pro-war series. It became a thing that the enemy for 12 years was always the dark-skinned person with the slanted eyes -- no matter what platitudes they said.
Q Garrison originally approached you about making a movie about Lake Wobegon. He's still talking about that. ...
A I'm sure he is.
Q And some people are speculating that you will direct it. Is there any foundation to that?
A We haven't discussed it. I have no question that Garrison has the will to make that movie. And if he has the will, he'll probably get it done. But I have no idea if I will be involved.
Q If you're not making a Lake Wobegon movie, what is your next project?
A I'm going to do "Hands on a Hard Body." It's based on a documentary about a contest at a Nissan dealer. It was an endurance test. A group of people had to stand around a truck keeping at least one hand on it at all times. They ended up dealing with fatigue, of course, but with a lot of other issues, too. And the truck was given to the last one standing.
Q The last one standing. Sounds like we're talking about you.
A [Chuckle] Let's hope so.
