Blue Like Jazz: My Webcast with Marshall Allman and Steve Taylor

While Steve Taylor, director of the upcoming “Blue Like Jazz” movie, and Marshall Allman, star of the film, were at South by Southwest premiering the movie, I got a chance to do an interview with them by webcast. We talked about the evolution of the story from book to screen, why they felt so strongly that this film had to be made and the risks of portraying Christians as stereotypes.

You also get a sampling of Allman’s gift for accents.
