Sally Field & Michael Showalter—Hello My Name Is Doris—1/22/2016

Two-time Oscar winner Sally Field (Norma Rae, Places in the Heart) has pretty much done it all. She's been a sitcom starlet (Gidget, The Flying Nun), an Actors Studio-trained dramatic actress (winning her first of three Emmys in the title role of Sybil), a movie star (Absence of Malice, Smokey and the Bandit, Steel Magnolias, Soapdish, Not Without My Daughter), Broadway star (The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?), and character actress extraordinaire (Lincoln, Forrest Gump, The Amazing Spider-Man). Now she's again showing her comedy chops, in Michael Showalter's feature film My Name Is Doris. Showalter is best known as a member of the comedy groups The State and Stella. Before co-writing and directing My Name Is Doris, Showalter co-wrote and starred in Wet Hot American Summer and its Netflix prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp; wrote, directed, and starred in The Baxter; and co-wrote They Came Together. I spoke with Showalter and Field at San Francisco's Ritz-Carlton Hotel on January 22, 2016.
