David Gordon Green is a director. His films have ranged from the touching indie drama George Washington (his debut) to his most recent, the stoner action-comedy Pineapple Express. He's also worked with college friends Jody Hill, Danny McBride and Ben Best on the HBO series Eastbound and Down, and on the upcoming fantasy comedy Your Highness.
He talked with us while visiting South by Southwest for a panel on Eastbound & Down. He discussed the parallels between his more dramatic and more comedic work, how he became a director of Big Movies, and about testing "Your Highness" and "Pineapple Express" for audiences.
