Winners and Losers From 20 Years of Inside the Actors Studio

James Lipton would already like to sleep with every single person who joins him on stage for Inside the Actors Studio, which is only one of the reasons that I think appearing on the show is probably a terribly complex feat of acting. You so have to try; and only signal the effort insofar as it makes us love you more. Or do the harder thing and become more fully yourself. (Tellingly, Robin Williams' 2001 appearance splits the partisans.)
