"I Melt with You" Interviews

"I Melt with You" is from filmmaker Mark Pellington who directed the video for Pearl Jam's "Jeremy." He also made videos for Anthrax and Sacred Reich (!) back in the day. Among other highlights from my conversations with Pellington and his film's stars, I was able to get Rob Lowe to say "LITERALLY!" (It came up naturally, I promise). You can watch my interview with Lowe and Jeremy Piven HERE and my interview with Thomas Jane and Pellington HERE.
