Opening this week is the new Ang Lee movie “Taking Woodstock”. So to help promote its release, I was recently able to interview most of the cast in New York City and I’ll be posting an interview a day all week. Up first is the star of the film, Demetri Martin. In the film, Dememtri plays Elliot Tiber. While you might not know Elliot’s name, he’s one of the unsung heroes who helped put on Woodstock. Anyway, during the interview Demetri talks about making the film, how he got cast, and we go into detail about some of my favorite scenes. Take a look after the jump:
Finally, before watching the interview, here are some clips from “Taking Woodstock” and the full synopsis. I really suggest checking them out.
