All actors are the same boring, predictable automatons. At least I think that’s the takeaway from this remix of writhing-meal-worm-filled scarecrow James Lipton’s 10 Questions segment on Inside the Actors Studio. Then again, that’s coming from a blogger who posts about pop culture curiosities on the internet, so let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves here.
Remixer Jordan Laws mashes together a super cut of some famous actors’ answers to Lipton’s questions, including “What’s your favorite word?” and “What’s your least favorite word?” Which received lots of love and hate follows.
