    I love this format you always get a dumbass reporter who asks stupid questions but actors like this know the industry inside out and ask really interesting questions :)

    David Harbour is a lazy, unintelligent interviewer

    There's no EGO here. Just people talking seriously about how they enjoy they work and admire each other. This is not very typical in actors and I enjoyed this interview a lot.

    This is easily the best actor interview I have ever seen. I've watched a number of David Harbour interviews and he makes any interviewer look good, because Harbour is so thoughtful and articulate. MacLachlan takes it to a far higher level! He might be the best interviewer ever. He LISTENS and he relates to his own experiences, which are vast. It's pure magic, these two intelligent well-spoken empathetic acting veterans.

    No one can bring it like Kyle MacLachlan. Playing five characters in season 3 fucking flawlessly. One of the best ever.

    Shared this over on Kyle’s IG post about this conversation. David mentioned how people tend to love the messier, grosser parts of ourselves more. It caused me to think of a quote from Guillermo Del Toro, "...perfection is unattainable. Perfection is a conceit. Perfection actually lies in fully loving the defect. I think that's perfection. It's like what the guy says in Hellboy, he says, 'We like people for their qualities; we love them for their defects.' It's true in life. It's the same."

    They were both 'going through orchards?' A. For real, Kyle? B. How does that idyllic (likely fictionalized) childhood produce a David Lynch? I'm not buying it MacLachlan.

    One of my favorite pairings for this show. I don't get all the hate for David Harbour. I agree he does talk a little much, but I think he's pretty cool and insightful.

    David Harbour has done AMAZING movies. I personally feel he should be in leading roles. He was sensational in Revolutionary Road...wish he had more scenes and dialogue. He should be in a romantic movie with Kate Winslet...they have great chemistry. I feel he is so underrated in Revolutionary Road...he's like an onion...he has SO many layers. Kyle MacLachlan in SITC as Charlotte's husband, Tray...he was quite darling in that...liked them as a couple. He's a good actor.

    Kyle is an incredible actor and season 3 was the greatest season of television ever made. He's starring in a few high-profile films now, so happy for this recent resurgance.

    When two actors talk, the one who talks more is the lesser actor. They are clearly more into talking than acting.

    This is the best one, hands down. I've never heard someone be able to get one of David Lynch's ensemble players or himself to explain how he gets the performances. Because it is so stylized. Now I understand the Tarantino method more as well. It's not necessarily that the actor is that intuitive, it's the director knowing how to get the performance out of them. You can tell they truly respected each other's work. There was no sense of obligatory questions. Both really engaged. So good!

    comparing twin peaks to stranger things is absurd the later being a nostalgia kick for aging new parents who were kids in the 80's and the former a legit work of art.

    • Alexandra Fitzpatrick

      i do enjoy stranger things, but you're completely right. twin peaks is completely unlike anything else and paved the way for so many other shows . Lynch is on a completely different level than his contemporaries

      Yeah man, it's a great read so far. Mark Frost is an excellent author. I haven't quite got to the section on Jack Parsons, Crowley & L. Ron Hubbard yet, but from different videos I've watched on TheXvid, basically what I heard, is that when the real Trinity Atom Bomb happened, Jack Parsons, Crowley & Hubbard all believed that setting off the bomb, would basically open up a portal to another dimension that would allow a demonic entity that goes by the name of "Mother Scarlett" to come threw to our World. And they wanted this Mother Scarlett entity to find Satan, and give birth to the Anti-Christ. Whether they were successful with this plan or not, who knows. But it's pretty damn cool that Lynch & Frost symbolized this whole thing, almost down to a tee on Twin Peaks: The Return. Also, another interesting fact I heard, is that Bruce Dern (Laura Dern's father) wrote an autobiography on his life, and apparently, he traveled threw the Bermuda Triangle, or at least close to it, and he saw a spiral portal open up in the sky. I haven't read the book yet, but I'm guessing he must have talked to Lynch or Frost about it at some point. Maybe that's what inspired them to put the portals in the sky that lead to the White Lodge & The Dutchman's. And yeah man, I've been meaning to watch David Lynch's documentary. I'm really curious to see David Lynch's artistic process. And to learn more about T.M. I love all of his movies. Fire Walk With Me, Mulholland Dr. & Lost Highway are all incredible. I'll definitely check out the 2 classic films you mentioned too. They sound pretty cool.

      fuck ya man! jack parsons, crowley, native myth surrounding the lodges,mark frost has an interesting brain for compelling storytelling, and lynch on the other side of the coin messmerizing and terrifying with his filmed "paintings" the new doc on david lynch is definitely worth watching. from i think 1961 "the innocents" film is heavy, but awesome.

    • Evan Martin
      Evan Martin Month ago +2

      rob slover Thanks man. I'll definitely have to check out 'Picnic At Hanging Rock'. I haven't heard of it yet, but if it's got similarities to Twin Peaks, than I'll probably love it. And yes! Funny that you mention the Mark Frost books, because I literally just bought 'The Secret History Of Twin Peaks' from the bookstore last week. I'm 60 something pages in so far, and it's a great book from what I've read so far. I love the fact that it ties Jack Parsons, Alister Crowley, L. Ron Hubbard, Freemasonary, Native American history & different topics like that into it. As soon as I finish this book, I'll definitely pick up The Final Dossier.

      I get what you mean by that. Kyle seems like a more quietly cerebral person. I think David Harbour is intelligent - an articulate person. David is more brawn and as others have said, some pretense there...prideful. Nothing wrong with some machismo (us ladies like it anyways lol) but a person can get in trouble w/pride and pretense. It's the ego getting in the way, a diamond in the rough as ppl used to say. The age difference is notable. A 59 year old like Kyle may be more humbled by life and experience than someone like David's and my age (I'm also 43). If David could chip away at that ego, I"m betting his acting would be even more meaty. I like both actors though. Good interview.

      Their acting experiences and processes are so different...notice how Kyle has more healthy boundary between his personal life and his work. He kept emphasizing this throughout the interview. His career is an exceptionally rare thing, for sure. David probably covers up his acting insecurities with his wit and sarcasm. He probably is battling the narcissism still that he referred to...you can't be an efficient actor if you have all these acting techniques but can't take yourself out of the equation.... it's not about you, man. And he's gonna do Hellboy? He'd better get his shit together.

      Harbour is definitely lacking in humility. Watch the Los Angeles Times panel discussion with Harbour, Maggie Gyllenhaal and others - he completely dominates the discussion with his pretentiousness.

      Las Wijayatilake I mean, I see your point. But it’d be interesting to hear the perspective of younger actors too. Plus, Timothee Chalamet was on here and he’s only 22 which is the same age of Nick Robinson.

      Hi! I'm Brazilian too. Unfortunately, this video does not accept subtitles from users, otherwise, I would translate it to you.
      Keep learning English. It's very important. Just think; you couldn't talk to David Harbour in real life (I presume you like him) since you don't know English. Keep learning and a world will open up to you.
      Cheers :)
