As I said yesterday when I posted my interview with Jim Carrey, I’ve learned that if I wear my Goodfellas t-shirt during an on camera interview, I should expect whoever I’m speaking with to talk about the movie. This happened when I wore the shirt for my The Adjustment Bureau interview with Matt Damon, where he ended up talking about Scorsese’s gangster classic, and again when I spoke with Carrey.
Anyway, the reason I’m talking about my Goodfellas t-shirt is that I recently interviewed Carla Gugino for her new family film, Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Based on the 1938 children’s novel, Gugino plays Carrey’s ex-wife and she watches as her former husband starts to change after he inherits some penguins from his kooky father. During the interview, Gugino talks about her love for Martin Scorsese’s Casino and Goodfellas, what it was like to work with Carrey, and how she got involved with Mr. Popper’s Penguins. Hit the jump to watch. And you can watch the trailer here.
