The B-Movies Podcast: Director James Ponsoldt Talks Spectacular Now

James Ponsoldt's new film The Spectacular Now is just so spectacular, we had to get him on The B-Movies Podcast to talk about it. And talk we do! James Ponsoldt takes William "Bibbs" Bibbiani on an in-depth conversation about the making of the film, the casting of Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, the look of the film, the end of the film (no spoilers, we promise), its complex themes, alcoholism, absent parents, his career to date and the history of coming of age movies.

Plus, James was happy to talk about his upcoming projects Rodham, about Hillary Rodham Clinton, and Pippin, an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical.

Can we persuade James Ponsoldt to sing us a song? You'll have to watch the B-Movies Podcast: Exclusive James Ponsoldt Interview to find out. Follow everyone on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani, @JamesPonsoldt and @TheSpecNow.
