Rob Reiner

Legendary writer/director/actor Rob Reiner joins us on the show this week. You remember his American staples: This is Spinal Tap, Stand By Me, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Misery, A Few Good Men. Then there’s his performance as “Meathead” from Norman Lear’s landmark show, All in the Family. And then there’s…we could do this forever. Reiner has been an integral part of the American consciousness for over half-a-century, which makes him an especially challenging subject to spend only one hour with. Nevertheless, it’s a fun one.
