Interview with Jerry Levine of Teen Wolf

Show Notes: Jerry Levine has no reason to have to do an interview like this. The guy has a full plate directing TV shows, which he's done for years. Well known shows: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Monk, Everybody Hates Chris, Boy Meets World. I could go on.

What I'm saying here is that there are plenty of people in that situation who might act too cool to talk about an acting role they did very early in their career. It's very obvious though, that Jerry Levine still loves Stiles. At the very least, he seems cool with the fact that the movie's become a popular pop culture reference. He didn't try to drop in the fact that he's doing other things now. In fact, the only time he brought up his directing career without me asking is when he was telling a directing story that related to Teen Wolf.

The cool thing about this interview is that Jerry was pretty good on two fronts: talking in general terms about the success of the film and also bringing some specifics from the set, particularly a detailed description of how the urban surfing scenes were filmed.

And by the way, as busy as Jerry is with his directing career, he took the time to ask questions about me and the show before we got started. Not everybody does that. Another good guy.

If you haven't already, have a listen.
