Act Of Odd: An Interview With Crispin Glover

Crispin Glover is an actor, writer, director, recording artist and author. He's in our studio today. 

Glover is very famous for two things. The movie "Back to the Future," in which he played the character George McFly at two different ages, and several very eccentric appearances on late night talk shows. 
 
His body of work is very much at odds with "Back to the Future" and all the mainstream success it symbolizes. In fact, he refused to appear in the sequel and then sued its makers when they interspiced old footage of him with an actor wearing prosthetics to make it appear that he was in the second film.
 
The talk show appearances, especially a legendary performance which causes David Letterman to stand up and slink off his own set, speak more directly to Glover's ambivalent relationship with his own fame. But we'll let him tell you about that, after the news.
