I had to go with Plan B, which is to approach him at the convention and ask for an interview there. This is always a long shot, because the celebrity has no chance to check out my website to make sure it is legit and clean.
Matt and I went to his table before the convention officially started and took our shot. Despite being busy trying to get things set up, Sarandon gave us a couple minutes of his time for the interview.
I asked him about doing conventions and his favorite role. He was pretty diplomatic about singling out one role (although a lot of actors are). I did not cover any ground-breaking news in the interview, but I got to talk to an Academy Award nominee (for Dog Day Afternoon).
I really appreciate Sarandon's time and willingness to talk. Like he says in the interview, if you want to learn more about him, you'll have to check out imdb.com.
