Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Michael Shannon joined me for a long chat about his career in film, TV and stage, his musical interests and ties to Chicago. He’s done so much throughout his career, it was impossible to get into everything. That said, we managed to talk about Shape of Water, Knives Out, Man of Steel, Elvis and Nixon, Waco, Fahrenheit 451, the Quarry and more. Also discussed:
- His Chicago roots, including A Red Orchid Theatre.
- Shooting Local H’s “Innocents” video.
- Would he ever do a horror movie?
- Working with Zack Snyder on “Man of Steel,” and the impending release of the “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League.”
