Alexander Payne, Virginia Madsen and Jim Taylor are here to help The Studio@620 celebrate its fifth anniversary with a screening of the film at the Vinoy tonight and a discussion tomorrow at the Studio. The connection? Studio Co-Artistic Director Bob Devin Jones explained via email:
Alexander Payne, Jim Taylor and I lived next door to each other in Silver lake (East Hollywood near Griffith Park). I had a small part in Alexander’s graduate (UCLA) student film, I also catered one day of the shoot. I and my best friend Joe Marenelli were the two actors in Jim Taylor’s graduate film that got him into the film school at NYU. We have all known each other for nearly 25 years. In Silver Lake – I still have that apt – we would have these Friday night dinners nearly every Friday night (lots of stuff from Trader Joe’s). Jim and Alexander were frequent guests. Alexander loves to cook.
