James Lipton interviews some of today's most talented actors, directors and writers. In the audience are students and famous alumni of the Actors Studio's master of fine arts program. The interviewees talk about their childhood, how they got started in show business, their early career and behind-the-scenes trivia. The interview concludes with a standardized questionnaire that includes such questions as "What is your favorite word?" and "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?" After that, Lipton and the interviewee move to a classroom where the M.F.A. students can question the interviewee directly.Written by

When I first watched this, I believe it was the Cast of The Simpsons, after this, it was my new favorite show!
Inside The Actor's Studio is hosted by James Lipton (with the exception of the 200th episode in which Lipton was interviewed by Dave Chappelle). The show has not one, but more than hundreds of actors and actresses.
From Anthony Hopkins to Jane Fonda, actors and actresses recount their lives to what brought them to being an actor, actress, writers, and directors by birth to the seat they sit in.
It is a fantastic show with a wonderful ending Q & A. The show is wonderful, it is funny and informative!
