Ernest James, Douglas McGrath and Graham Reynolds: Interviews from the Texas Film Hall of Fame

CultureMap presented a great pre-party for the Texas Film Hall of Fame awards last week. We got to interview some pretty cool folks and thought we'd share them with you.

Ernest James starred in Season 5 of Friday Night Lights and will be seen in the upcoming Tim McCanlies film "When Angels sing."

Writer, actor, director Douglas McGrath is probably best known as the writer of "Bullets over Broadway," for which he was nominated for an Oscar. He also wrote and directed "Nicholas Nickleby," among other films. He started out as a writer on Saturday Night Live.

Graham Reynolds is an Austin-based film composer, perhaps best known for his score on "A Scanner Darkly," with Robert Downey, Jr., and most recently Richard Linklater's new film "Bernie." He also serves as bandleader for the Golden Arm Trio.
