Inside the Actors’ Studio

Inside the Actors’ Studio is one of those shows that you either love or hate. Here at CitizenCaine, we're very much in the love camp. After all, what could possibly be wrong with a couple of luvvies chatting about work?

Towards the end of each edition, host James Lipton asks his guests 10 questions, known as the Pivot Questionnaire (Bernard Pivot originally devised them for his French TV show Bouillon de Culture). Some guests are more verbose than others in their answers. Michael Caine erred on the side of brevity when he appeared in 1998.
