Bethlehem Shoals, Silverbird 5000 and Big Baby Belafonte are three of the authors of the baskeball blog Free Darko. Their distinctive perspective on the game is reflected not just on the blog, but also in their first book, "The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac." They claim in our interview, among other things, that they started watching basketball because it went so well with their interest in Ornette Colemen records. It's certainly the only basketball guide that features an elaborate visual metaphor based on the Aztec calendar.

Jeffrey Tambor
Show: 
Bullseye

Jeffrey Tambor has spent more than 30 years as an actor. A native of San Francisco, he started in television in the 1970s, and his career has followed a simple track since: he plays important authority figures (doctors, lawyers, judges) and self-important pseudo-authority figures. He portrayed the sweet, sad, hilariously self-centered sidekick Hank Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show in the 1990s, and this decade played the patriarch of the Bluth family on Arrested Development. In addition to his work as an actor, he's also a teacher, having worked for many years alongside late legendary acting teacher Milton Katselas. He teaches regular classes and workshops in Los Angeles, including one March 21st at the American Film Institute.
