Back to the Blog Introducing Edgecast: Is Method Acting Dead?


Download Podcast | iTunes | Podcast Feed

Last week The New Ledger launched a sister site, Edge, edited by Michael Tunison, which focuses on everything we don’t talk about here at TNL. In this first podcast for Edge, it’s my pleasure to chat with Cole Abaius of FilmSchoolRejects.

Cole’s a smart guy, and he’s seen more movies than just about anyone. So he seemed a good voice to respond to this controversy-sparking piece in the Wall Street Journal by David Thomson on the “Death of Method Acting.” I asked Cole: is method acting really dead? Can a style of acting die? What does that even mean? And he answers, with bonus Richard Milhous Nixon references.

We hope you find our first Edgecast interesting. Head on over to Edge for more.
