Interview: Beth Grant, 'Herpes Boy'


Beth Grant at AFF

Character actor Beth Grant, who has appeared in everything from Rain Man to Crazy Heart, was in Austin last fall for the world premiere at Austin Film Festival of Herpes Boy, a film she both co-produced and starred in. Herpes Boy returns to town as an AFF special screening this week at Alamo Lake Creek. You can read our Herpes Boy review -- better yet, listen to this interview for Grant's perspective of this quirky comedy. She also discusses what it was like to work with Mike Judge in Extract and with "Sandy" (Bullock), Donnie Darko and the role of myths in film, and offers advice to women who want to get into filmmaking.
