Director, actor and former Bill & Ted star talks about his latest film, Grand Piano, his documentary Deep Web, and lots more...
Although perhaps best known for his roles in two Bill & Ted films and The Lost Boys, Alex Winter is equally at home behind the camera, having spent the last two decades working predominantly as a director – from the cult classic Freaked, through various music videos, adverts and movies, up to his recent documentary Downloaded (which tells the story of Shawn Fanning and Napster) and the upcoming, Kickstarted-funded Deep Web.
Recently, however, he’s taken a rare step back into acting, appearing alongside Elijah Wood and John Cusack as a villainous usher in Eugenio Mira’s stylish thriller Grand Piano. We caught up with Alex down the line from his new home base in La, to discuss his work on both sides of the actor-director divide.
So I guess the first question, »
Word on the interwebs is that American Horror Story season 4 is going to be set in a Carnival or play with the idea of a Circus-theme. I’ve been craving the Ahs touch on a carnival ever sense the appearance of ‘Pepper’ in Season 2. If you don’t think she was modeled by something out of Tod Browning’s Freaks, you need to do your homework. While there is still no “official” word from Ryan Murphy confirming the season’s theme, the Internet is already swarming with theories, fan art, and dream casts. Circuses and Carnivals play a very prominent role in the history of American entertainment, but it’s sadly becoming a dying art form. I can’t even remember the last time a carnival came to town and allowed me to get funnel cake drunk before trying to pretend I couldn’t see the missing screws on the Tilt-a-Whirl. »
