This week’s guest on Someone Else’s Movie has the most imposing resume of anyone who’s ever done the show: In some five decades as an actor, Stephen McHattie has racked up credits on everything from Kojak and Starsky and Hutch to The X-Files and Orphan Black, and that’s just a sampling. Remember Pontypool? Yeah, that’s the stuff.
This week he’s in Peter Lynch’s avant-garde Toronto mystery Birdland, which gave me the chance to put him on the podcast. And Stephen swung hard, picking John Ford’s revolutionary Western The Searchers and really digging into it — after some gentle coaxing, that is.
