We’re run featurettes, behind-the-scenes videos and making of documentaries here at The Playlist, but we’d wager there’s been nothing quite like what you’re about to watch below. Four and a half fucking hours, undiluted, with Terence Winter, the writer behind “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Sopranos,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street” and much, much more.
Recorded last year by Archive of American Television, the lengthy talk finds Winter going very, very deep on his entire life and career. The conversation covers his school days, stand-up comedy dreams (really), early writing gigs (on stuff like “The Cosby Mysteries” and “Xena: Warrior Princess“), and of course, lots and lots about “The Sopranos” and “Boardwalk Empire.” This is a guy whose career has taken him from specs for “Doogie Howser, M.D.” to becoming a collaborator with Martin Scorsese. Epic indeed. Go to the bathroom first and watch below. [Cinephilia & Beyond]
