So I talked to a whole bunch of folks for this week’s NOW — but thanks to a combination of space issues and last-minute rescheduling, only about half of that content actually appears in the paper.

It’s good stuff, though — a conversation with “ParaNorman” co-directors Chris Butler and Sam Fell, who’ve made one of the year’s best and strangest movies, and a chat with Joel Edgerton, the Australian star of the very weird would-be family picture “The Odd Life of Timothy Green”.

I also talked to Tony Asimakopoulos, whose personal documentary “Fortunate Son” opens tomorrow; that’s a web exclusive, though. And my interview with Daniel Espinoza, director of the TIFF 2010 entry “Easy Money”, will have to wait until next week, because the movie was pushed back to August 24th at the very last minute. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you about it when the time comes.

Also, I took a look at the next Packaged Goods reel, which is screening next Wednesday at TIFF. Some fun stuff in there, including this little work of genius.

Oh, and it’s my birthday today. But it’s also Steve Carell’s, so let’s focus on that. Happy birthday, Steve Carell! You’re always a great interview!

(Seriously, he really is.)
