Anybody else watch these? You can find a lot of them on Youtube these days. I used to watch them a lot when I was living with my parents, just started watching a few again recently.
I think I like them because the interview serves a purpose for the audience, and not for the interviewee. If you see the same people on Letterman or whatever, it will be to promote something for 10 minutes, then they're gone again. This is way more personal, and more about them as an actor, not as a person.
