Dan Rattiner speaks with acclaimed actor, writer, director, producer Bob Balaban – Episode 23

This week’s podcast is with Bob Balaban, acclaimed actor, writer, director, and producer, (and longtime resident of Bridgehampton). Balaban shares some of his most memorable experiences on set with Francois Truffaut and Stephen Spielberg (‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’), talks about his Oscar-nominated role in ‘Gosford Park’ (and how he pitched the idea of the movie to Robert Altman), and his famous recurring role on ‘Seinfeld’ as the NBC exec responsible for accepting or rejecting the pilot pitch by George and Jerry.

Balaban is directing a virtual reading of a new play by Drama Desk Award winner Jerry Cohen called ‘Squeaky’ for Guild Hall on Sunday, March 28th at 7:30pm.
